Date:10/28/2008

o be treated if the facility in which they were seen had only one inpatient hospital compared to those with multiple sites and if the provider was a specialist for HCV.

"The study highlights the important role of facilities and providers, in addition to the known patient-related factors, in explaining variation and possibly outcomes of care in HCV-infected patients," said Hashem El-Serag, MD. "These factors have been largely ignored in current research. We plan to investigate the role of facility factors in HCV treatment receipt in coinfected patients further by including data from a recently completed facility survey addressing facility factors specifically involved in HCV care."

Abstract title:

Patient, provider, and facility characteristics of HCV antiviral treatment among US veterans with HCV-HIV coinfection.
