In PACCT, we first created relationship, trust and rapport between NGOs and the coaching team.
To determine the health care costs associated with PACCT coordinated care, a study comparing case-controlled hospital-based charges was performed.
Exclusion criteria included children in the neonatal intensive care unit, those who died within 72 hours of their initial admission, those patients with an incomplete medical record, and those who had received PACCT services less than 30 days prior to death.
The medical records of nine case-controlled children who did not receive PACCT services were identified and analyzed to compare hospital costs during the last 6 months of life.
In comparing children who received PACCT services to case controls, the similarities are striking, and the differences may have clinical significance.
The results of this small study conclude that indeed, the care provided is consistent, regardless of PACCT interventions.
