  1. Why do sicker patients cost more ? A charge-based analysis of patients undergoing prostatectomy.

    Article - En anglais

    Hospitals are reimbursed a greater amount for Medicare patients undergoing prostate surgery who have comorbid and complicating conditions than for patients without these conditions, since the former have been shown to have higher hospital costs and charges.

    We attempted to determine whether the higher hospital charges are due to duration of hospital stay and/or intensity of services.
