The Payer Perspective

Alliance recently led one of the first real-world studies to assess and compare epilepsy-related healthcare resource utilization and economic outcomes among 14,000 patients who received video-EEG (VEEG) in outpatient vs inpatient settings.

The study, “The real-world economic impact of home-based video electroencephalography: the payer perspective,” was published by the Journal of Medical Economics. It concludes that VEEG procedures were significantly less costly in an outpatient vs. inpatient cohort, and epilepsy-related healthcare costs were lower during the follow-up period of 12 months after the procedure.

For patients and payers, outpatient monitoring offers an economically viable alternative to inpatient monitoring, when patient indications are non-urgent, with evidence that supports comparable diagnostic accuracy – more simply stated, outpatient VEEG is cheaper, faster, and delivers equivalent diagnostic value.1
