Background: Little is known about costs and effects of vision screening strategies to detect amblyopia. Aim of this study was to compare costs and effects of conventional (optotype) vision screening, photoscreening or a combination in children aged 3-6 years. Methods: Population-based, cross-sectional study in preventive child health care in The...

Comment on the article: Costs and effects of conventional vision screening and photoscreening in the Dutch preventive child health care system. We thank professor Simonsz for his comments, since it gives us the opportunity to clarify some of our findings. Indeed, with the price for the photoscreening device of €2.29 per child as calculated in...

Although several countries have adopted severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) into their newborn screening (NBS) program, other countries are still in the decision process of adding this disorder in their program and finding the appropriate screening strategy. This decision may be influenced by the cost(-effectiveness) of these screening...

Introduction: Cost-effectiveness (CEA) and cost–utility analyses (CUA) have become popular types of economic evaluations (EE) used for evidence-based decision-making in healthcare resource allocation. Newborn screening programs (NBS) can have significant clinical benefits for society, and cost-effectiveness analysis may help to select the...

Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) is a condition that often results in severe infections and death at young age. Early detection shortly after birth, followed by treatment before infections occur, largely increases the chances of survival. As the incidence of SCID is low, assessing cost-effectiveness of adding screening for SCID to the...

The implementation of newborn screening for severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) in the Netherlands is a multifaceted process in which several parties are involved. The Dutch Ministry of Health adopted the advice of the Dutch Health Council to include SCID in the Dutch newborn screening program in 2015. As newborn screening for SCID is...

Background: The goal of integrated care is to offer a continuum of care that crosses the boundaries of public health, primary, secondary, and tertiary care. Integrated care is increasingly promoted for people with complex needs and has also recently been promoted in maternity care systems to improve the quality of care. Especially when located...

De minister van VWS is voornemens om de neonatale hielprikscreening met veertien aandoeningen uit te breiden, waaronder severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). Deze aandoening leidt vaak al kort na geboorte tot ernstige infecties en overlijden op jonge leeftijd. Vroegtijdige ontdekking via screening, gevolgd door behandeling (meestal...

BACKGROUND: Previous cost-effectiveness studies using data from the literature showed that newborn screening for cystic fibrosis (NBSCF) is a good economic option with positive health effects and longer survival. METHODS: We used primary data to compare cost-effectiveness of four screening strategies for NBSCF, i.e. immunoreactive trypsinogen...

Objectives To validate the Labor and Delivery Index (LADY-X), a new delivery-specific utility measure. Study Design and Setting In a test–retest design, women were surveyed online, 6 to 8 weeks postpartum and again 1 to 2 weeks later. For reliability testing, we assessed the standard error of measurement (S.E.M.) and the intraclass correlation...

Background: Birth centres are regarded as settings where women with uncomplicated pregnancies can give birth, assisted by a midwife and a maternity care assistant. In case of (threatening) complications referral to a maternity unit of a hospital is necessary. In the last decade up to 20 different birth centres have been instituted in the...

Undescended testis (UDT), congenital or acquired, is the most common genital anomaly seen in boys. It can be treated surgically by orchiopexy, but there is no agreement about the age at which the operation should be performed. Using available information, an expert group assessed the outcomes of orchiopexy at different ages, expressed in quality...

Background: In obstetrics, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness studies often present several specific outcomes with likely contradicting results and may not reflect what is important for women. A birth-specific outcome measure that combines the core domains into one utility score would solve this problem. The aim of this study was to...
