Cost–DALY comparison of hip replacement care in 12 Belgian hospitals

Publié le 28 octobre 2021 Mis à jour le 28 octobre 2021

In view of the expected increase in expenditure on hip replacement treatment in Belgium, the complication rate and potential waste reduction, as estimated by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, we are not yet in a position to assess the efficiency of hip replacement treatment in Belgian hospitals. This objective study uses a cost–disability adjusted life years (DALYs) ratio to propose a comparison of hip replacement surgery among 12 Belgian hospitals.
