Better access to cool caps improves outcomes, lowers cost of treating asphyxia in newborns

mine potential health benefits of making the cooling devices more widely available.

Currently used in other industries, such as manufacturing, airport and shipping operations, the simulation has only recently been applied to healthcare. Researchers modeled the care and subsequent outcomes of all infants born in Massachusetts over a one-year period (approximately 76,000) and assessed how best to distribute the devices to the 24 NICUs throughout the area.

Neonatal intensive care is highly regionalized, and as a result of the increased distances, access to life-saving technology may not be timely for all patients, explained Zupancic. By borrowing innovative problem-solving techniques from other industries, we can establish how to achieve improved efficiency and decreased costs across complex health care systems, he said.

The Harvard researchers used estimates showing that the treatment of HIE-related disabilities costs the health care system $900,000 per patient, including medical and non-medical costs associated with children requiring assistance for the rest of their lives. Several scenarios were tested varying the location and number of SHC devices across the state. The team plugged in specific data on ambulance transportation times and infant health, as well as economic data on hospital, physician, and treatment costs from the 2006 Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services Hospital Cost Report
