Evaluation of costs in rheumatic diseases: a literature review - fibromyalgia related research

  [ 143 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • March 16, 1999


The aim of our review was to examine recently published cost-
evaluations presenting originally developed data in rheumatic
conditions. We identified 21 articles: 9 presenting original
data on rheumatoid arthritis and/or osteoarthritis; 7 focusing
on other musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain,
scleroderma, Lyme disease, and fibromyalgia; and 5 assessing
costs in total knee and hip arthroplasty. Most of the studies
originated in the United States. In contrast to earlier
reviews in this journal, fewer studies focused on only
pharmacoeconomic aspects. In reviewing these studies, we found
a lack of standardization in cost-assessment leading to a
limited comparability of study results. As main tasks to
improve the evidence achieved by performing cost-evaluations
in clinical settings, we identified a standardization of main
cost-components that should be covered by each clinical trial
and the assessment of validity, reliability, and comparability
of different data sources used to collect cost-data.
