BACKGROUND Bloodborne pathogens pose a major safety risk in transfusion medicine. To mitigate the risk of bacterial contamination in platelet units, FDA issues updated guidance materials on various bacterial risk control strategies (BRCS). This analysis presents results of a budget impact model updated to include 5- and 7-day pathogen reduced (PR)...

Background and Objectives There is a critical need for effective interventions to support quality of life for persons living with dementia and their caregivers. Growing evidence supports non-pharmacologic programs which provide care management, disease education, skills training, and support. This cost-benefit analysis examined whether the Care of...
Article
Objective To determine the willingness-to-pay (WTP) of family caregivers to learn care strategies for persons living with dementia (PLwD). Design Randomized clinical trial. Setting Community-dwelling PLwD and their caregivers (dyads) in Maryland and Washington, DC. Participants 250 dyads. Intervention Tailored Activity Program (TAP) compared to...
Article
Background: Technologies used in the processing of whole blood and blood component products, including pathogen reduction, are continuously being adopted into blood transfusion workflows to improve process efficiencies. However, the economic implications of these technologies are not well understood. With the advent of these new technologies and r...
Article
Purpose : We previously reported costs and outcomes of the Children's Eye Care Adherence Program (CECAP1), a social worker intervention designed to improve adherence to eye care for underserved children in urban Philadelphia. Using cost findings from CECAP1, we revised the intervention to reduce costs. The aim of this study was to evaluate costs an...

Background Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus (HZO) affects 10-20% of adults with herpes zoster; ≥ 50% of these cases manifest as serious ocular diseases. This 1-year prospective observational cohort study aims to determine patient-reported HZO symptoms as well as economic and quality of life burden among 300 HZO patients from 6 major US ophthalmology prac...
Article
The Care of Persons with Dementia in their Environments translational study (COPE‐CT) is a Connecticut‐based randomized clinical trial conducted to evaluate the efficacy of behavioral intervention (COPE) vs. usual care (UC) for persons with dementia (PwD) and their caregivers. PwD in both groups were enrolled in the Connecticut Home Care Program fo...
Article
Background: Health technology assessment is becoming increasingly important to healthcare payers' decision-making. The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) is the most established US-based research group performing value assessments. ICER provides opportunities for stakeholder engagement, including a window of opportunity for public c...
Article
Full-text available
Family caregivers provide a majority of care for persons with dementia (PwD); however, little is known about caregiver’s willingness to pay (WTP) for an intervention to help them manage dementia symptoms. To fill this gap, caregiver/PwD dyads (n=223) were recruited to participate in a randomized trial evaluating tailored activities to minimize beha...
Article
Full-text available
TAP intervention costs captured alongside the randomized controlled study included labor of program staff, mileage, supplies and materials. Staff time costs were converted to $US 2017 by multiplying hours spent by the appropriate wage rate plus fringe benefits; mileage was costed using the federal reimbursement rate. Research costs were excluded to...
Article
We assessed the cost of delivering COPE and caregiver willingness-to-pay (WTP) for it. Program costs were captured alongside the trial and included interventionists’ time and travel for home visits and communications, converted to $US2015 by multiplying hours spent by the appropriate wage and applying the federal mileage reimbursement rate for trav...
Article
Objectives: To assess the association of the Pharmacists’ Pneumonia Prevention Program (PPPP) with changes in beliefs related to pneumonia vaccination (PV) in a predominately older African American population. Methods: PPPP was an educational intervention delivered using a senior center model of care consisting of a formal pharmacist presentation,...
Article
Full-text available
BackgroundUS FDA draft guidance includes pathogen reduction (PR) or secondary rapid bacterial testing (RT) in its recommendations for mitigating risk of platelet component (PC) bacterial contamination. An interactive budget impact model was created for hospitals to use when considering these technologies. MethodsA Microsoft Excel model was built an...
Article
Background: Vaccination is the best way to prevent pneumococcal disease (PD), but 40% of older adults remain unvaccinated nationwide, with even greater nonvaccination rates among African Americans (AAs). Prior studies suggest that insufficient knowledge contributes to low vaccination rates. The Pharmacists' Pneumonia Prevention Program (PPPP) was...
Article
Full-text available
Background: The results of several studies have demonstrated that women and men with a cancer diagnosis benefit from interventions to reduce distress and improve quality of life (QOL). However, little is known about the costs and effectiveness of such interventions. Identifying a stress-reduction program that is low cost and effective is important...
Article
Full-text available
To inform a net financial benefit analysis of COPE-CT from the Medicaid perspective, a variable map was developed which included relevant costs and willingness-to-pay (WTP) for the program. WTP for non-pharmacological behavioral programs is critical to translation because it indicates the monetary value caregivers place on these services. 85 partic...
Article
Objectives: Medication-related problems (MRP) affecting older adults are a significant healthcare concern and account for billions in medication-related morbidity. Cancer therapies can increase the prevalence of MRP. The objective of this study was to test the feasibility and effectiveness of implementing a pharmacist-led individualized medication...
Article
Background Plasma is used to treat acquired coagulopathy or thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, or to reverse warfarin effect. Scant data are available, however, about its costs. Objective To estimate total costs of plasma from production through administration, from the perspective of a US hospital blood donor center (BDC). Study Design and Metho...
Article
The follow-up rate among children with vision problems in the authors' outreach programs has been <5%. The authors therefore developed a social worker (SW) intervention, the Children's Eye Care Adherence Program (CECAP), for Philadelphia school children. The objective of this study was to measure CECAP's effectiveness and cost, as well as to identi...
