Approximately 20,000 hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) procedures are performed in the US annually. Real-world evidence on the costs associated with post-transplant complications are limited. Patients with hematologic malignancies aged ≥18 years undergoing auto-HCT or allo-HCT between January 1, 2011 and June 30, 2014 were identified in the Truven Health MarketScan(®) Research Databases. Patients were required to have 12 months of continuous medical and pharmacy enrollment pre- and post-HCT with the exception that patients with evidence of inpatient death within 12 months post-HCT were also included...

D Clark, A King, K Sharpe, G Connelly, L Elliott, L M D Macpherson, A D McMahon, I Milligan, P Wilson, D I Conway, R Wood
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Children in state care ('looked after children') have poorer health than children who are not looked after. Recent developments in Scotland and elsewhere have aimed to improve services and outcomes for looked after children. Routine monitoring of the health outcomes of looked after children compared to those of their non-looked after peers is currently lacking. Developing capacity for comparative monitoring of population-based outcomes based on linkage of routinely collected administrative data has been identified as a priority...

OBJECTIVES: In 2014, the National Board of Public Health Examiners performed a job task analysis (JTA) to revise the Certified in Public Health (CPH) examination. The objectives of this study were to describe the development, administration, and results of the JTA survey; to present an analysis of the survey results; and to review the implications of this first-ever public health JTA. METHODS: An advisory committee of public health professionals developed a list of 200 public health job tasks categorized into 10 work domains...

BACKGROUND: Prescription opioid abuse and misuse is a serious and growing public health issue. While the most common form of abuse is swallowing intact tablets/capsules, some abusers manipulate, or tamper with, these medications by altering the dosage form to allow for non-oral routes of administration (e.g., injection, inhalation) in order to achieve more rapid or enhanced psychoactive effects. Because administration of opioids via non-oral routes results in greater systemic availability and more rapid central nervous system penetration, we hypothesized that death and major medical outcomes occur more frequently with non-oral routes compared to oral route alone...

OBJECTIVE: To assess 12-month mortality and patterns of outpatient and inpatient treatment among young people experiencing an incident episode of psychosis in the United States. METHOD: Prospective observational analysis of a population-based cohort of commercially insured individuals aged 16-30 receiving a first observed (index) diagnosis of psychosis in 2008-2009. Data come from the US Department of Health and Human Services' Multi-Payer Claims Database Pilot...

Qian Xiao, Hannah Arem, Ruth Pfeiffer, Charles Matthews
Study Objectives: Prediagnosis lifestyle factors can influence colorectal cancer (CRC) survival. Sleep deficiency is linked to metabolic dysfunction and chronic inflammation, which may contribute to higher mortality from cardiometabolic conditions and promote tumor progression. We hypothesized that prediagnosis sleep deficiency would be associated with poor CRC survival. No previous study has examined either nighttime sleep or daytime napping in relation to survival among men and women diagnosed with CRC...

BACKGROUND: Multipotent adult progenitor cells are a bone marrow-derived, allogeneic, cell therapy product that modulates the immune system, and represents a promising therapy for acute stroke. We aimed to identify the highest, well-tolerated, and safest single dose of multipotent adult progenitor cells, and if they were efficacious as a treatment for stroke recovery. METHODS: We did a phase 2, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalation trial of intravenous multipotent adult progenitor cells in 33 centres in the UK and the USA...

BACKGROUND: Under the Affordable Care Act, States have obtained Medicaid waivers to overhaul their behavioral health service systems to improve quality and reduce costs. Critical to implementation of broad service delivery reforms has been the preparation of organizations responsible for service delivery. This study focused on one large-scale initiative to overhaul its service system with the goal of improving service quality and reducing costs. The study examined the participation of behavioral health organizations in technical assistance efforts and the extent to which organizational factors related to their participation...

169 Background: In this era of electronic health records (EHR), quality monitoring can be a fast repetitive process. Having access to the relational database of the EHR permits rapid case identification and quality indicator determination. We hereby describe evaluation of hepatitis B testing prior to rituximab administration, a quality measure as per ASCO guidelines. METHODS: We connected SQL Query Manager with EPIC Clarity database. Using the object model for medication orders, location and department, we used SQL language to build a temporary dataset of all patients who have a completed order for a Rituximab infusion at a specific department location within the past 6 months...

OBJECTIVE: To examine geographic access to dental providers for the general population and children with public insurance in Missouri and Wisconsin. METHODS: Using a newly constructed dentist office database from the American Dental Association master file and other sources, we use the two-step floating area catchment area method to calculate population to provider ratios at the census block group level. These ratios are used to determine potential geographic dentist shortage areas...

A dynamic health care industry continues to call upon health care leaders to possess not one but multiple competencies. A post hoc review of 3 secondary data sets (previous parallel surveys administered in 2007, 2011, and 2015) was conducted to determine what preferred academic program of study (master of health administration, master of business administration, or a clinical degree preparation) may exist by current hospital executives and potential trending of executive degree preparations over time. In addition, any relationships among individual hospital administrator, individual personal characteristics, and their preferred degree preparations were also investigated at an exploratory level...

Our aim was to institute a system whereby emergency anaesthetic guidelines are available in >90% of appropriate clinical areas throughout each of the acute hospital sites in three health board administrative regions, and whereby >90% of available guidelines are deemed to be in date and fit for purpose. Our objective was to achieve these targets within 6 months. Using quality improvement methodology, we inventoried available emergency anaesthetic guidelines in 132 locations throughout seven acute care hospitals...

A student mentoring program can impact the overall experience in an academic program and establish a strong connection between students. It creates a platform for students to ask specific questions, learn more about the curriculum and professional opportunities, and compare tips on how to approach businesses for career-building positions. Topics such as conducting a residency search, finding an external mentor, and navigating through academic projects are often stressful components of the master of health administration (MHA) curriculum...

This study examines whether working conditions at the end of workers' careers impact health and contribute to health disparities across occupations. A dynamic panel correlated random effects model is used in conjunction with a rich data set that combines information from the Health and Retirement Study (HRS), expert ratings of job demands from the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), and mid-career earnings records from the Social Security Administration's (SSA) Master Earnings File (MEF). Results reveal a strong relationship between positive aspects of the psychosocial work environment and improved self-reported health status, blood pressure, and cognitive function...
