In the French diagnosis-related group (DRG)-based payment system, both private and public hospitals are financed by a public single payer. Public hospitals are overcrowded and have no direct financial incentives to choose one procedure over another. If a patient has a strong preference, they can switch to a private hospital. In private hospitals, t...

Background and objective: Several cardiovascular risk factors have emerged as important determinants of severe illness and death among coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients. However, the full impact of these cardiovascular risk factors is still under investigation. This study aimed to investigate the association between patients' level of ca...

Background: The aim of this study is to evaluate the costs and the outcomes comparing lung lobectomy by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) versus thoracotomy for operable non-small cell lung cancer. Methods: A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained patient’s database who had lobectomy for lung cancer at a single institution bet...

Background: Obesity can be associated with one or more co-morbidities that worsen the effect of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Studies demonstrated that severe forms of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) have occurred in elderly patients and patients with co-morbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular d...

Background: Data for predicting severity of patients with COVID-19 infection are sparse and still under investigation. We retrospectively studied whether the admission serum C-reactive protein level (CRP) can serve as nearly predictor of disease severity during COVID-19 infection in comparison with other hematologic and inflammatory markers. Meth...

Diabetes is considered a risk factor for complications due to COVID-19. In order to clarify this association, we are exploring the characteristics, the clinical signs, the outcomes and death in diabetic patients with COVID-19. In this retrospective observational study we are evaluating the demographic characteristics, the comorbidities of the patie...

Cesarean deliveries are widely used in many high- and middle-income countries. This overuse both increases costs and lowers quality of care and is thus a major concern in the healthcare industry. The study first examines the impact of prenatal care utilization on cesarean delivery rates. It then determines whether socioeconomic status affects the u...

Objective: To investigate whether staffing levels of maternity units affect prelabor urgent, elective, and intrapartum cesarean delivery rates. Methods: This population-based retrospective cohort study covers the deliveries of the 11 hospitals of a French perinatal network in 2008-2014 (N = 102 236). The independent variables were women's demogr...

Conference Paper
The overuse of cesarean deliveries induces both increased costs and low quality of care. French data and multilevel logit models were used to examine the impact of prenatal care on cesarean delivery rates, a question insufficiently investigated to date. Controlling for relevant factors, our results show that antenatal education decreases the probab...

Presentation
The use of cesarean deliveries varies across regions and providers. This variation is worrisome because of the increased cost and clinical risk of cesarean deliveries. French data and multilevel logit models with hospital fixed effect clustered at the iris level were used to examine the effect of each determinant factor, after activity-based pricin...
Conference Paper
Dans cet article, nous nous proposons d’analyser les facteurs déterminants de la pratique de la césarienne en France après l’entrée en vigueur de la tarification à l’activité (T2A). Nous prenons l’exemple de l’ensemble des accouchements du département des Yvelines sur la période de 2008 à 2013. Nos résultats montrent que, les établissements privés...
