Costs and Financial Consequences from Epidemiological Changes on Respiratory Diseases Related to Tobacco Consumption: The Mexican Case (pp.177-188) $100.00
Authors:  (Armando Arredondo, Carlos Carrillo, Alexis Zuñiga, National Institute of Public Health, México)
Abstract:
Objective: The objective of this study was to determine the health-care
costs and financial consequences from epidemiological changes in desaeses
related to tobacco consumption in Mexico. Methods: Longitudinal design
with seven health interventions selected: Chronic obstructive pulmonary
diseases, Lung cancer -without surgical intervention-, Lung cancer -with
surgical intervention-, Asthma in non-smokers, Asthma in smokers, full
treatment course of nicotine gum, and full treatment course of nicotine patch.
According with Box-Jenkins methodology, probabilistic models were
developed to forecast the expected changes in the epidemiologic profile and
the expected changes in health care services required for selected
interventions. Health care costs were estimated following the instrumentation
methods and validated with consensus technique. Results: Comparing the
economic impact in 2010 vs. 2012, there is a 20-90% increase in expected
cases depending of the disease (p<.05), and a 25-93% increase in financial
requirements (p< .01). Our data suggest that changes in the demand for
health services for patients with respiratory diseases related to tobacco
consumption will continue with an increasing trend. Conclusions: In
economic terms, the changes in the number of cases expected during the
study period highlights the process of internal competition and adds an
element of intrinsic competition in the management of preventive and
curative interventions. Study results support the conclusion that if preventive
programs remain unchanged, the increasing demands for curative health care
may cause great financial and management challenges to the health care
system of middle-income countries like Mexico.
