EHMA Webinar: Estimating the costs for a single hospitalisation episode

Overview:

The cost estimation of healthcare services is considered crucial to ensure better planning and allocation of available healthcare resources, especially in emergency contexts. The COVID-19 pandemic has generated many difficulties for hospital management. Up to June 2020, the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus globally reached over 8 million, with a hospitalisation rate around 89.3 per 100,000. This abrupt increase in hospitalised patients, mainly in intensive care, has created a significant problem with regard to the quantification of the resources used for COVID-19 treatment. Using the clinical costing method, it is possible to estimate the costs for a single hospitalisation episode for a COVID-19 patient.
