  1. Cost of care of patients with cystic fibrosis in The Netherlands in 1990-1.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Research on the cost of care of patients with cystic fibrosis is scarce.

    The aim of this study was to estimate the costs using age-specific medical consumption from real patient data.

    Methods

    The age-specific medical consumption of patients with cystic fibrosis in The Netherlands in 1991 was estimated from a survey of medical records and a patient questionnaire.

    A distinction was made between costs of hospital care, hospital and non-hospital medication, and home care.

    Costs per year were obtained by multiplying the yearly amount of care and the costs per unit.

    Results

    On average the annual cost of a patient with cystic fibrosis in 1991 was R10 908 (hospital care 42%, medication 37%, home care 20%). The cost of care of cystic fibrosis in The Netherlands, with approximately 1000 patients, is estimated at R10.9 million per year, which is 0.07% of the total health care budget.

    The cost of care of a patient up to the age of 35 is estimated at R614 587.

    When year-to-year survival is taken into account and future costs are discounted to the year of birth with a yearly discount rate of 5%, the cost of care of a patient with cystic fibrosis is estimated at R164365 for 1991.

    This estimate will be used in a prospective evaluation of screening for cystic fibrosis carriers.

    Conclusions

    The cost of care of patients with cystic fibrosis estimated by age-specific medical consumption of real patients is higher than that estimated by non-age-specific medi...
