AIM: To compare the economic value of EDWARDS INTUITY Elite™ (EIE) valve system for rapid-deployment aortic valve replacement (RDAVR) in a full sternotomy (FS) approach (EIE-FS-RDAVR) versus FS-AVR using conventional stented bioprosthesis. DATA & METHODS: A simulation model to compare each treatment's 30-day inpatient utilization and complication rates utilized: clinical end points obtained from the TRANSFORM trial patient subset (EIE-FS-RDAVR) and a best evidence review of the published literature (FS-AVR); and costs from the Premier database and published literature...

AIM: To compare the satisfaction of patients treated with vitamin K antagonists (VKA) with that of patients treated with direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) and to determine the impact on quality of life of both treatments in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). METHODS: Cross-sectional multicenter study in which outpatients with NVAF completed the ACTS (Anti-Clot Treatment Scale), SAT-Q (Satisfaction Questionnaire) and EQ-5D-3L (EuroQol 5 dimensions questionnaire, 3 level version) questionnaires...

AIM: Using matching-adjusted indirect comparison, we compared efficacy outcomes in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis treated with delayed-release dimethyl fumarate (DMF) or glatiramer acetate (GA). MATERIALS & METHODS: An indirect comparison of DMF (patient-level data) and GA (aggregate data) was conducted, with average baseline characteristics of DMF patients weighted to match those for GA patients. Direct comparison of DMF and GA was conducted in CONFIRM...

AIM: To identify the factors that promote or interfere with evidence-based clinical decisions from the patient perspective. MATERIALS & METHODS: We developed four hypothetical scenarios with clinical decisions, such as whether to pursue testing for a chronic condition. We conducted eight focus groups to better understand the influences on individuals' decisions in the context of the scenarios. RESULTS: A patient's relationship with a physician emerged as the strongest influence on whether participants would accept or reject a physician's recommendation...

AIM: Describe patient, caregiver and clinician views toward engagement as partners in health research. MATERIALS & METHODS: Online surveys of patients and caregivers managing rare (n = 560 patients, n = 609 caregivers) or chronic conditions (n = 762 patients, n = 776 caregivers) and practicing clinicians (n = 638). RESULTS: Over half of respondents were unfamiliar with the concept of partnering with researchers but most expressed interest in working in a research partnership...

AIM: To assess awareness, use and attitudes concerning comparative effectiveness research (CER) findings. MATERIALS & METHODS: Online surveys of patients and caregivers managing rare (n = 560 patients, n = 609 caregivers) or chronic conditions (n = 762 patients, n = 776 caregivers), and practicing clinicians (n = 638). RESULTS: Less than half of patients and caregivers reported exposure to any type of CER findings in the past 12 months. Of those, over half identify healthcare professionals as the information source, yet only 10% of clinicians indicated they were 'very familiar' with CER...

AIM: To understand researcher capability for and interest in patient-centered comparative effectiveness research (PC-CER), particularly related to engaging with patients/caregivers. MATERIALS & METHODS: Web-based survey of 508 health researchers recruited via professional health research organizations. RESULTS: Most respondents (94%) were familiar with CER and many (69%) reported having previously conducting some form of CER. Most respondents were familiar with (81%) and interested in (87%) partnering with patients and/or caregivers in research...

PATIENTS & METHODS: Inclusion criteria: 6-17 years, ≥1 ADHD diagnosis, ≥1 long-acting and/or short-acting stimulant with GXR augmentation. Modified medication possession ratio (mMPR; days medication available/days in period, excluding medication holidays) was assessed; mMPR <0.80 nonadherent...

INTRODUCTION: Dengue virus (DENV) is a serious global health problem. CYD-TDC (Dengvaxia(®)) was the first vaccine to gain regulatory approval to try and address this problem. AIM: Summarize all available evidence on the immunogenicity, efficacy and safety of the CYD-TDV dengue vaccine. METHOD: Meta-analysis and systematic review. RESULTS: The best and worst immunogenicity results were for DENV4 and DENV1, respectively...

AIM: To compare the cost-effectiveness of different disease-modifying therapies' strategies for treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. METHODS: A Markov model was developed to assess the cost-effectiveness and incremental cost-effectiveness ratios for different strategies of using disease-modifying therapies from a US third-party payer perspective. All costs were converted to 2014 US$. RESULTS: Over 20 years, the total costs per patient were estimated at US$161,136...

AIM: Antiepileptic drugs do cause adverse effects, affecting patients' quality of life, adherence and seizures. Consequently, there is a need to study this among Nigerian patients. METHODS: Descriptive cross-sectional study assessing the extent of adverse effects with carbamazepine monotherapy and potential factors. RESULTS: 54 patients (64.3%) reported no adverse effects, while 30 did. The most common adverse effects were memory problems followed by headaches, restlessness, tiredness and depression...

Kara Contreary, Anna Collins, Eugene C Rich
We conduct a narrative literature review using four real-world cases of clinical decisions to show how barriers to the use of evidence-based medicine affect physician decision-making at the point of care, and where adjustments could be made in the healthcare system to address these barriers. Our four cases constitute decisions typical of the types physicians make on a regular basis: diagnostic testing, initial treatment and treatment monitoring. To shed light on opportunities to improve patient care while reducing costs, we focus on barriers that could be addressed through changes to policy and/or practice at a particular level of the healthcare system...
