Assistenza sanitaria ad elevato valore

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 9 gennaio 2019

La crisi di sostenibilità del Servizio Sanitario Nazionale ha determinato un crescente interesse per la promozione di un’assistenza sanitaria ad elevato value, in grado di ridurre gli sprechi ed aumentare il ritorno in termini di salute del denaro investito in sanità. In tal senso, l’eccesso di test diagnostici è una pratica dal basso value molto diffusa e, in particolare, la continua ripetizione di esami di laboratorio di routine nei pazienti ospedalizzati determina effetti avversi prevenibili, sia clinici (es. anemia da ospedalizzazione, aumento della mortalità nei pazienti con patologie cardiopolmonari) sia economici (es. esecuzione di ulteriori test diagnostici, trasfusioni inappropriate, aumento della durata della degenza). Peraltro, anche se gli esami di laboratorio rappresentano meno del 5% della spesa ospedaliera, l’impatto economico è molto più elevato perchè i loro risultati influenzano circa 2/3 delle decisioni cliniche relative ad ulteriori test diagnostici o interventi terapeutici.«Il fenomeno è molto complesso – afferma Nino Cartabellotta, Presidente della Fondazione GIMBE – perché le prescrizioni ripetute di esami di laboratorio nei pazienti ospedalizzati conseguono alla variabile interazione di vari fattori: medicina difensiva, incertezza diagnostica, sottostima degli effetti avversi, scarsa consapevolezza dei costi, mancato feedback sulla prescrizione dei test, differente background formativo dei medici. Tuttavia, oggi consistenti evidenze scientifiche oggi documentano sia l’efficacia di vari interventi per ridurre i test di laboratorio inappropriatamente ripetuti in ospedale, sia che tale riduzione non si associa ad un aumento di eventi avversi, quali mancate diagnosi, re-ospedalizzazione o mortalità».Per tali ragioni, previa revisione sistematica della letteratura, la Fondazione GIMBE ha realizzato un Position Statement per offrire a professionisti e ospedali un framework multidisciplinare e basato sulle evidenze per promuovere iniziative finalizzate a ridurre la ripetizione dei test di laboratorio di routine in ospedale.Tre gli interventi efficaci per ridurre la ripetizione inappropriata di test di laboratorio di routine nei pazienti ricoverati: la formazione, l’audit & feedback ai professionisti sull’appropriatezza delle prescrizioni e la loro restrizione tramite cartella clinica informatizzata. «Nonostante l’efficacia dei singoli interventi – precisa Cartabellotta – una riduzione significativa e prolungata dei test superflui si ottiene dalla loro combinazione multifattoriale, coinvolgendo opinion leader clinici e decisori per promuovere il cambiamento nell’organizzazione ed estendendo gli interventi a tutti i professionisti sanitari e non solo ai medici prescrittori».«In base alle evidenze scientifiche – conclude Cartabellotta – oggi possiamo affermare sia che la continua ripetizione dei test di laboratorio nei pazienti ospedalizzati genera sprechi e danni, sia che la loro riduzione non ha alcun impatto negativo sulla sicurezza dei pazienti. Auspichiamo che il Position Statement GIMBE venga utilizzato dagli ospedali e dai medici, sia per ridurre una pratica costosa e rischiosa, sia per il potenziale impatto culturale, visto che ridurre pratiche dal basso value migliora la sicurezza, l’efficacia e la costo-efficacia dell’assistenza e contribuisce alla sostenibilità del Servizio Sanitario Nazionale».

Maggi, a subsidiary of the Nestlé group, is set to lose over US$ 200 million in brand value following a ban imposed by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). Maggi will destroy US$ 50m worth of noodles which have been branded “unsafe and hazardous” after the FSSAI discovered “higher-than-allowed levels of lead” in some noodle packets.Maggi’s brand was valued at US$ 2.4bn prior to the food safety ban, which ranked the noodle manufacturer as the 23rd most valuable food brand in the world. However, Brand Finance analysts have calculated that the US$ 50m loss of goods combined with a damaged brand, results in a reduced brand value of US$ 2.2bn.Brand Finance CEO, David Haigh, comments “Any health concerns raised by a credible source such as the FSSAI will most certainly damage customer loyalty and consideration of a food brand. As Maggi’s parent company, Nestlé will have to turn around swiftly to ensure that the Maggi brand can retain its dominance in the Indian market. If not, the Nestlé brand itself could be at risk as the Nestlé logo prominently features on the back of Maggi noodles packaging, making it synonymous with the Maggi brand.”Nestlé has decided to challenge the high court whilst also raising “issues of interpretation” of India’s food safety laws.
Brand Finance specialises in the management of intellectual property. Its brand valuations help marketers to design their campaigns, boards to evaluate business strategy and investors to assess potential acquisitions thoroughly. It defines a brand as “a marketing-related intangible asset (including a combination of names, terms, logos and designs) intended to identify and create distinctive associations about a product, service or organisation.” Brand value is “the total future economic benefits attributable to a brand.” That is determined by estimating the likely future sales that are attributable to a brand and in turn what a company would have to a pay to use the brand if it did not control it, a process known as the ‘Royalty Relief’ method.

Italian rally drivers

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 28 marzo 2010

After about three months of events in Italy and abroad the IRDA, International Rally Drivers Association, published the updated 2010 ranking of the overall classification of the best Italian and San Marino rally drivers.The IRDA is established through a points system, which are calculated on the basis of the importance,  sporting difficulties and results of drivers and codrivers from Italy and San Marino in rallies recognized by both the FIA and ACI CSAI, national and international. A Ranking which aims to be objective, according to the  results obtained in the last 365 days (one year) of races, in which thousands of San Marino and Italian rallymen  (drivers and codrivers) may see their value recognized as a whole, The Ranking is not a career award, but it  rewards, in a comprehensive way, the drivers for the value of their victories and their results in the last year of  racing, something that the current classification systems obviously do not allow being based on rankings for each series, trophy or rally without a single national ranking. The first thirty Italian and San Marino drivers  classified in any rally in the world may enter the ranking. The drivers who have earned the points necessary to  enter the IRDA rankings currently are 1314 (Italy and San Marino)
