The impact of therapeutic procedure innovation on hospital patient longevity: Evidence from Western Australia, 2000–2007
Assessing the benefits of medical innovation—its impact on health outcomes—is as important as assessing the costs—its impact on health expenditure. Most formal studies have focused on the expenditure impacts of medical technology, partly because costs are more easily identified and quantified than are benefits. Moreover, most quantitative research relating to the impact of broad categories of technology on health outcomes has focused on pharmaceuticals. This is the first study that investigates the benefits and costs of another broad category of medical innovation—inpatient therapeutic procedure innovation—using data on over one million hospital discharges.
