Universal ophthalmia neonatorum prophylaxis in Ontario: a cost-effectiveness analysis
The objective of this modelling study was to assess the cost-effectiveness of universal prophylaxis for ophthalmia neonatorum to inform decision-makers on the potential impact of a change in this policy.METHODS: We compared the cost-effectiveness of prophylaxis for ophthalmia neonatorum with no prophylaxis through cost-utility analysis with a lifetime time horizon, considering a provincial government payer, for a hypothetical population of newborns in Ontario. We assessed both the mean incremental costs of prophylaxis and its mean incremental effectiveness using a hybrid (part decision tree, part Markov) model. We used a s...

Association between physician continuity of care and patient outcomes in clinical teaching units: a cohort analysis
CMAJ Open. 2023 Jan 17;11(1):E40-E44. doi: 10.9778/cmajo.20220149. Print 2023 Jan-Feb.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Hospital-based clinical teaching units (CTUs) are supervised by rotating attending physicians. Physician hand-offs in other contexts have been associated with worse patient outcomes, presumably through communication gaps. We aimed to determine the association between attending physician hand-offs on CTUs and patient outcomes including escalation of care, readmission and mortality.METHODS: We conducted a retrospective, multicentre cohort study using data from 3 tertiary care hospitals in Calgary between Jan. 1, 2015, an...

Effect of a multimorbidity intervention on health care utilization and costs in Ontario: randomized controlled trial and propensity-matched analyses
CMAJ Open. 2023 Jan 17;11(1):E45-E53. doi: 10.9778/cmajo.20220006. Print 2023 Jan-Feb.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Patients with multimorbidity require coordinated and patient-centred care. Telemedicine IMPACT Plus provides such care for complex patients in Toronto, Ontario. We conducted a randomized controlled trial (RCT) comparing health care utilization and costs at 1-year postintervention for an intervention group and 2 control groups (RCT and propensity matched).METHODS: Data for 82 RCT intervention and 74 RCT control participants were linked with health administrative data. We created a second control group using health admin...

Survival and health care costs after inpatient elective surgery: comparison of patients with and without chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
CMAJ. 2023 Jan 17;195(2):E62-E71. doi: 10.1503/cmaj.220733.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is common among surgical patients, and patients with COPD have higher risk for complications and death within 30 days after surgery. We sought to describe the longer-term postoperative survival and costs of patients with COPD compared with those without COPD within 1 year after inpatient elective surgery.METHODS: In this retrospective population-based cohort study, we used linked health administrative databases to identify all patients undergoing inpatient elective surgery in Ontario, Canada, from 200...
