Thalassemia in the outpatient department of the Yangon children's hospital in Myanmar: cost analysis of the day-care-room services for thalassemia.
A cost analysis study for the fiscal year 1989-1990 was conducted in the day care room (DCR) for thalassemia patients at the Yangon Children's Hospital in Myanmar to provide a basis for future cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit and efficiency analyses.
Two types of costs, hospital costs and costs borne by the patients'families were studied by reviewing hospital records and by interviewing family members of patients.
Of the total cost of DCR services for thalassemia 74 to 75% was contributed by material costs most of which were for imported items.
