FILIPE, Maria Margarida Leitão; SILVA, Abel Paiva e  e  GONCALVES, Suzete. Organization of costs with medical and pharmaceutical supplies in integrated care teams. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2016, vol.serIV, n.10, pp.69-76. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV16004.

Background: Public policies on cost reduction and control have resulted in early inpatient discharge, followed by the provision of home care by integrated continuous care teams (ICCTs). Objectives: To identify ICCT clusters that report costs deriving from the use of medical and pharmaceutical supplies (MPSs). Methodology: A cluster analysis was performed through a two-step method, an exploratory instrument designed to reveal natural clusters considering a dataset framework. Results: Two clusters were identified. The most representative cluster - lower consumption of wound care supplies - comprised 138 cases (86.8%), whereas the other cluster - higher consumption of wound care supplies - comprised only 21 cases (13.2%). Conclusion: This study identified that the costs with MPSs in the client cluster with higher consumption of wound care supplies always exceed the overall median value.

Palavras-chave : health care costs; long-term care; clusters.
