Socioeconomic differences in one-year survival after ischemic stroke: the effect of acute and post-acute care-pathways in a cohort study

Background The reasons for socioeconomic inequity in stroke mortality are not well understood. The aim of this study was to explore the role of ischemic stroke care-pathways on the association between education level and one-year survival after hospital admission. Methods Hospitalizations for ischemic stroke during 2011/12 were selected from Lazio health data. Patients’ clinical...

The Tradeoff between Travel Time from Home to Hospital and Door to Balloon Time in Determining Mortality among STEMI Patients Undergoing PCI

Background In ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), even in presence of short door to balloon time (DTBT), timely reperfusion with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is hampered by pre-hospital delays. Travel time (TT) constitutes a relevant part of these delays and may contribute to worse outcomes. Objective To evaluate the relationship between TT from home...

Recently, a new entity has been defined, called healthcare-associated pneumonia (HCAP). Few studies have investigated the potential of population-based, electronic, healthcare databases to identify the incidences of these three subtypes of...

Socioeconomic differentials in premature mortality in Rome: changes from 1990 to 2001

Background While socioeconomic inequalities in mortality have widened in many countries, evidence of social differentials is scarce in Southern Europe. We studied temporal changes in premature mortality across socioeconomic groups in Rome between 1990 and 2001. Methods We analysed all 126,511 death certificates of residents of Rome aged 0–74 years registered between 1990–2001. A...

Effects of socioeconomic position on 30-day mortality and wait for surgery after hip fracture

We examined whether socioeconomic position plays a role in short-term mortality and waiting time for surgery after hip fracture. Design Retrospective cohort study. Settings and participants From the Hospital...

Income level and chronic ambulatory care sensitive conditions in adults: a multicity population-based study in Italy

Background A relationship between quality of primary health care and preventable hospitalizations has been described in the US, especially among the elderly. In Europe, there has been a recent increase in the evaluation of Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions (ACSC) as an indicator of health care quality, but evidence is still limited. The aim of this study was to determine...

Differences in access to coronary care unit among patients with acute myocardial infarction in Rome: old, ill, and poor people hold the burden of inefficiency

Background Direct admission to Coronary Care Unit (CCU) on hospital arrival can be considered as a good proxy for adequate management in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), as it has been associated with better prognosis. We analyzed a cohort of patients with AMI hospitalized in Rome (Italy) in 1997–2000 to assess the proportion directly admitted to CCU and to...
