Economic impact of exacerbations

Some studies have determined that hospitalisation costs represent 40–57% of total direct costs generated by patients with COPD, and this percentage may be as high as 63% in severe patients (Hilleman DE et al, 2000). Since acute exacerbations are the main cause of hospitalisation among COPD patients, it is evident that the economic burden of acute exacerbations is considerable. Observational studies performed in primary care centres observed that 16–22% of patients having exacerbations were admitted during 1 year (Pena VS et al, 2000). The costs of exacerbations that require hospitalisation increase dramatically compared with those that can be treated in an ambulatory setting. An analysis derived from a clinical trial in patients with COPD demonstrated that the 15% of exacerbations requiring hospital admission generated 90% of the costs associated with exacerbations (Miravitlles M et al, 2002). In a recent study in primary care in Spain, the mean total cost of an acute exacerbation of COPD was estimated to be US$159, with the main part being due to hospitalisations, which represented 58% of the total cost, followed by the drug costs amounting to 32% of the total (Miravitlles M et al, 2005). Failure implies a cost that is three times higher than the cost of management of the exacerbation, particularly due to the high cost of hospitalisation. If the percentage of relapses could be reduced, especially in severe cases, or if switching a patient from parenteral to oral therapy could reduce the length of hospital stay, valuable resources could be saved. The costs of managing acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis are high, particularly because of the high costs associated with relapse (Feenstra TL et al, 2001; Jacobson L et al, 2000). Strategies to improve the outcome of ambulatory treatment of exacerbations should be very cost-effective, especially in more severe patients who are at increased risk of being admitted to hospital as a consequence of therapeutic failure.
