In 2014, US healthcare spending exceeded $3.0 trillion with nearly 1/3 spent on hospitalizations. Informed by real-world data from an Electronic Health Record (EHR) database of clinical and administrative records spanning 273 million encounters for 60 million patients in 600+ hospitals across the US, Boston Strategic Partners (BSP) Real World data report, Hospital-Treated Pneumonia , estimates 30% of all hospital discharges involve treatment of infectious organisms. Pneumonia is responsible for an estimated 12% of all hospital stays. At an average cost of $15,500 per occurrence, we estimate that hospitalizations for severe infections account for around $212 billion in annual spending or 7% of total healthcare expenditure. In this report, we conduct an in-depth analysis of pneumonia patient characteristics, medication management, costs, and laboratory testing.
Gram-negative bacteria are the likely causative agents of most pneumonia infections and physicians treat most of these patients with levofloxacin, ceftriaxone, and azithromycin. From 2010-2015, drug resistant organisms caused a surprising 20% of bacterial pneumonia infections.
This report provides quantitative, objective data using real-world patient encounters and reflects real physician decisions and encounter characteristics (e.g. patient response to therapy and outcomes) in key areas, such as antibiotic resistant pathogens and antimicrobial stewardship.
