2021 № 4 COST-EFFECTIVENESS ANALYSIS OF MODERN MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES MALDI-TOF MS FOR RAPID DIAGNOSTICS OF BACTERIAL INFECTIONS
The principle of rational antibiotic therapy can only be realized in the case of accurate and rapid identification of the pathogen. The spread of antibiotic resistance limits the choice of antimicrobial drugs and worsens the clinical prognosis for patients, so new strategies are needed to improve patient outcomes. The article presents a clinical and economic analysis of innovative technologies MALDI-TOF MS for the rapid diagnosis of microorganisms. Mass spectrometric identification of bacterial pathogens helps to reduce the time required for the issuance of the results of bacteriological analysis and an economically viable technology for use in routine practice of microbiological laboratories in Russia.
2019 № 9 Economic efficiency of application of methods of mass-spectrometrically identification of microorganisms in a large general surgical hospital
Bacterial complications, seen in the prism of health care-related infections, have very tangible socio-economic conse¬quences on the part of the patient, insurance companies, medical institutions, and on the part of the state as a whole. The pur¬pose of this study was to perform an economic analysis of the introduction of innovative technology for the diagnosis of bacterial infections, based on mass spectrometric technologies.
