To describe the use of hospital-based services and associated costs over time for HIV-infected individuals by disease stage and year of treatment.
Data on service use were abstracted from inpatient and outpatient case-notes of 459 HIV-infected patients (121 asymptomatic and 338 AIDS patients) treated at St Mary's Hospital, London between 1983 and 1989.
Cost estimates were derived from a survey of the 37 departments involved with HIV-related care.
The number and type of admissions and outpatient visits, referral and discharge venues, number and type of tests and procedures performed, drugs prescribed and associated costs for the study period were the outcome measures used.
