[Hospital morbidity in an urban district in Tunisia]
Bchir, Abdallah ( 1998 )

In the health region of Monastir, Tunisia, there is a register of admissions to all public hospitals. Those relating to patients resident in Ksar Hellal District during the year 1995 were identified [N = 1983 admissions to hospital]. This made it possible to establish the population-based pattern of hospital morbidities. The annual hospitalization rate is 6.1%; the rate for patients aged ' 65 years is estimated at 13.1%. Chronic diseases are responsible for 31.5% of admissions to hospital and are predominantly diabetes and asthma. The morbidity pattern reflects a phenomenon of epidemiological transition and calls for the strengthening of ambulatory care and development of specific services likely to reduce the need for hospitalization

Hospital payment systems based on diagnosis-related groups: experiences in low- and middle-income countries
Wittenbecher, Friedrich; Mathauer, Inke ( 2013-08-06 )

OBJECTIVE: This paper provides a comprehensive overview of hospital payment systems based on diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) in low- and middle-income countries. It also explores design and implementation issues and the related challenges countries face. METHODS: A literature research for papers on DRG-based payment systems in low- and middle-income countries was conducted in English, French and Spanish through Pubmed, the Pan American Health Organization's Regional Library of Medicine and Google. FINDINGS: Twelve low- and middle-income countries have DRG-based payment systems and another 17 are in the piloting or exploratory stage. Countries have chosen from a wide range of imported and self-developed DRG models and most have adapted such models to their specific contexts. All countries have set expenditure ceilings. In general, systems were piloted before being implemented. The need to meet certain requirements in terms of coding standardization, data availability and information technology made implementation difficult. Private sector providers have not been fully integrated, but most countries have managed to delink hospital financing from public finance budgeting. CONCLUSION: Although more evidence on the impact of DRG-based payment systems is needed, our findings suggest that (i) the greater portion of health-care financing should be public rather than private; (ii) it is advisable to pilot systems first and to establish expenditure ceilings; (iii) countries that import an existing variant of a DRG-based system should be mindful of the need for adaptation; and (iv) countries should promote the cooperation of providers for appropriate data generation and claims management.

Hospital-based caesarean section in the Arab region: an overview
Khawaja, M.; Choueiry, N.; Jurdi, R. ( 2009 )

This article provides an overview of hospital-based rates of caesarean delivery in 18 Arab countries and the association between these rates and selected demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. Data on caesarean section were based on 2 of the most recent national hospital-based surveys in each country and on published studies based on hospital samples. High levels of caesarean delivery were found in Egypt [26% in 2003], followed by Sudan [20% in 1993]. Six countries and the West Bank area of Palestine had rates > 15% and 11 countries and Gaza had rates between 5% and 15%. The findings indicate an increasing trend of caesarean section delivery in the region. Policies aiming at reducing surgical deliveries should seek to identify and address these risk factors

Hospital-based retrospective assessment of dengue infection among Filipinos.
Z Capeding, Maria Rosario; Julia Paladin, Fem ( 1997-12 )

Dengue infection has increasingly become a significant public health problem in the Philippines. Clinical and laboratory data of confirmed dengue infections in children and adults admitted and referred at a research centre for infectious diseases over an eight-year period (1986-1994) were reviewed. This report highlights the epidemiological pattern of dengue infections among Filipinos.
