  1. Decreasing costs and improving outcomes in systemic lupus erythematosus : using regression trees to develop health policy.

    Article - En anglais


    To characterize patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who are expected to experience the highest direct and indirect monetary costs and greatest diminished productivity so that we may intervene to reduce costs and improve outcomes.


    We assessed demographics and health status in January, 1990 and costs incurred in the Montreal General Hospital Lupus Registry.

    We used regression trees to separate low from high cost patients.
