Portable continuous wave Doppler ultrasound for primary healthcare in South Africa: can the EUnetHTA Core Model guide evaluation before technology adoption?

Mueller, Debjani ; Pattinson, Robert C. ; Hlongwane, Tsakane M. ; Busse, Reinhard ; Panteli, Dimitra (2021-02-15)

Background This study had a threefold aim: to test the value of stakeholder involvement in HTA to reduce evidence gaps and interpret findings; and to assess a medical device by applying the EUnetHTA Core Model (CM) in South Africa and thus ultimately provide a first overview of evidence for potential widespread adoption of the technology in a primary health care (PHC) setting. Used in primary ...

INDEED–Utilization and Cross-Sectoral Patterns of Care for Patients Admitted to Emergency Departments in Germany: Rationale and Study Design

Fischer-Rosinský, Antje ; Slagman, Anna ; King, Ryan ; Reinhold, Thomas ; Schenk, Liane ; Greiner, Felix ; von Stillfried, Dominik ; Zimmermann, Grit ; Lüpkes, Christian ; Günster, Christian ; Baier, Natalie ; Henschke, Cornelia ; Roll, Stephanie ; Keil, Thomas ; Möckel, Martin (2021-04-16)

Introduction: The crowding of emergency departments (ED) has been a growing problem for years, putting the care of critically ill patients increasingly at risk. The INDEED project's overall aim is to get a better understanding of ED utilization and to evaluate corresponding primary health care use patterns before and after an ED visit while driving forward processes and methods of cross-sectora...

The impact of quality on hospital choice. Which information affects patients’ behavior for colorectal resection or knee replacement?

Kuklinski, David ; Vogel, Justus ; Geissler, Alexander (2021-01-27)

Quality competition among hospitals, induced by patients freely choosing their hospital in a price regulated market, can only be realized if quality differences between hospitals are transparent, understandable, and thus influence patients’ hospital choice. We use data from ~145,000 German patients and ~ 900 hospitals for colorectal resections and knee replacements to investigate whether patien...

Time trends in the regional distribution of physicians, nurses and midwives in Europe

Improving access to services for psychotic patients: does implementing a waiting time target make a difference

Kreutzberg, Anika ; Jacobs, Rowena (2020-02-25)

Objective: In April 2015, the English National Health Service started implementing the first waiting time targets in mental health care.

Study design: We analyse a cohort of first-episode psychosis patients from the Engl...

Cost-effectiveness of prehabilitation prior to elective surgery compared to usual preoperative care: protocol for a systematic review of economic evaluations

Rombey, Tanja ; Eckhardt, Helene ; Quentin, Wilm (2020-12-31)

Introduction: Preoperative functional capacity is an important predictor of postoperative outcomes. Prehabilitation aims to optimise patients’ functional capacity before surgery to improve postoperative outcomes. As prolonged hospital stay and postoperative complications present an avoidable use of healthcare resources, prehabilitation might also save costs. The aim of this systematic review i...

Baseline characteristics, diagnostic efficacy, and peri-examinational safety of IV gadoteric acid MRI in 148,489 patients

Braun, Joachim ; Busse, Reinhard ; Darmon-Kern, Elisabeth ; Heine, Oliver ; Auer, Jonas ; Meyl, Tobias ; Maurer, Martin ; Hamm, Bernd ; de Bucourt, Maximilian (2020-07-01)

Background: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations with intravenous (IV) contrast are performed worldwide in routine daily practice. In order to detect and enumerate even rare adverse events (AE) and serious adverse events (SAE), and to relate them with patients’ baseline characteristics and diagnostic effectiveness, high quantity sample size is necessary. Purpose: To assess safety, dia...

Israel’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic: tailoring measures for vulnerable cultural minority populations

Waitzberg, Ruth ; Davidovitch, Nadav ; Leibner, Gideon ; Penn, Nadav ; Brammli-Greenberg, Shuli (2020-05-19)

Every country has vulnerable populations that require special attention from policymakers in their response to a pandemic. This is because those populations may have specific characteristics, culture and behaviours that can accelerate the spread of the virus, and they usually have less access to healthcare, particularly in times of crisis. In order to carry out a comprehensive national interven...

The use of digitally collected patient-reported outcome measures for newly operated patients with total knee and hip replacements to improve post-treatment recovery: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Kuklinski, David ; Oschmann, Laura ; Pross, Christoph ; Busse, Reinhard ; Geissler, Alexander (2020-04-09)

Background The number of total knee replacements (TKRs) and total hip replacements (THRs) has been increasing noticeably in high-income countries, such as Germany. In particular, the number of revisions is expected to rise because of higher life expectancy and procedures performed on younger patients, impacting the budgets of health-care systems. Quality transparency is the basis of holistic p...
