Activity-Based Costing and Time-Driven Activity-Based Costing for Assessing the Costs of Cancer Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment: A Systematic Review of the Literature.

Value Health Reg Issues; 17: 142-147, 2018 Aug 24.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-30149318

BACKGROUND:

A review of the literature on economic analyses in cancer (prevention, diagnosis, and treatment) using activity-based costing (ABC) or time-driven activity-based costing (TDABC) for measuring costs and to examine how these approaches have been applied to assess and manage cancer costs.

METHODS:

This review followed the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement. We conducted a search for studies that used ABC or TDABC to calculate the cost of cancer in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Only English- and Portuguese-language articles were retrieved from Medline, Lilacs, ScieLO, and Embase (January 1990 to August 2016).

RESULTS:

In total, 421 studies were evaluated. However, only 27 papers were included. The first publications were from the early 2000s, but most of the studies were published in 2016 (n = 10). Most of the studies were carried out in the United States (n = 6) and Belgium (n = 6). Cancer treatment was the major focus of all studies (n = 20), followed by screening programs evaluations (n = 4) and diagnosis (n = 3). Among treatment modalities, economic analysis of radiotherapy was the most common topic of study. Retrospective clinical data represented 57.6% of the studies. More than 50% of the studies presented unspecified economic analysis. The hospital perspective was the most prevalent perspective among the studies (46.1%).

CONCLUSIONS:

ABC and TDABC economic analyses are a promising area of studies in oncology costs.
