  • A method of decision analysis quantifying the effects of age and comorbidities on the probability of deriving significant benefit from medical treatments

    Fitzgerald, Stephen P.; Bean, Nigel G.; Ruberu, Ravi P. (2017)
    Background: The external validity, or generalizability, of trials and guidelines has been considered poor in the context of multiple morbidity. How multiple morbidity might affect the magnitude of benefit of a given treatment, and thereby external validity, has had little study. Objective: To provide a method of decision analysis to quantify the effects of age and comorbidity on the probability of deriving a given magnitude of treatment benefit. Design: We developed a method to calculate prob...

    Patients with multimorbidity and their experiences with the healthcare process: a scoping review

    van der Aa, Maartje J.; van den Broeke, Jennifer R.; Stronks, Karien; Plochg, Thomas (2017)
    Background: The number of patients with multimorbidity (two or more conditions) is increasing. Observational research has shown that having multiple health problems is associated with poorer outcomes in terms of health, quality of care, and costs. Thus, it is imperative to understand how patients with multimorbidity experience their healthcare process. Insight into patient experiences can be used to tailor healthcare provision specifically to the needs of patients with multimorbidity. Objecti...

    Integrated multimorbidity management in primary care: why, what, how, and how to?

    Sturmberg, Joachim P.; Botelho, Richard J.; Kissling, Bruno (2016)

They believe the solution is “integrated care”, “The search to connect the healthcare system (acute, primary medical and skilled) with other human service systems (e.g. long-term care, education and vocational and housing services) in order to improve outcomes (clinical, satisfaction, and efficiency)” [1]. This definition includes key character...

    Multimorbidity: constellations of conditions across subgroups of midlife and older individuals, and related Medicare expenditures

    Koroukian, Siran M.; Schiltz, Nicholas K.; Warner, David F.; Sun, Jiayang; Stange, Kurt C.; Given, Charles W.; Dor, Avi (2017)
    Introduction: The Department of Health and Human Services’ 2010 Strategic Framework on Multiple Chronic Conditions called for the identification of common constellations of conditions in older adults. Objectives: To analyze patterns of conditions constituting multimorbidity (CCMM) and expenditures in a US representative sample of midlife and older adults (50–64 and ≥65 years of age, respectively). Design: A cross-sectional study of the 2010 Health and Retirement Study (HRS; n=17,912). The fol...
