The present proposal~s main objective consists of utility analysis (cost-effectiveness) in terms of cost per Quality-Adjusted Life Year (QALY) saved in two fields: 1) Three population interventions (and their combinations) designed to prevent coronary artery disease incidence aimed at reducing smoking, dyslipidaemia, and hypertension population prevalence, and 2) optimal use of coronary angiography and percutaneous intervention procedures in the management of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) with special emphasis on the elderly (>64 years) to minimize the inequalities in this patient subgroup that has higher mortality than patients
The researchers collected data from 824 participants over a 12-month period, and measured their quality-adjusted life years (QALYs), a measure of the quality and quantity of life added by an intervention.
This reduction in disease would have resulted in a net savings of $1,671,387 for chlamydia and $4,163,534 for gonorrhea, and a combined gain of 453 quality-adjusted life years.
