Psychiatric hospital outcomes of dual diagnosis patients under managed care

The American Journal on Addictions
S C LeonS I Miller


The authors compared patterns of psychiatric hospitalization utilization and outcomes between persons with and without co-existing substance-related disorders in a managed care environment by means of a prospective follow-along study of persons hospitalized for psychiatric reasons under the auspices of a large regional managed care firm. Forty-two psychiatric inpatients with comorbid substance disorders and 121 inpatients without coexisting substance disorders were compared across measures of service use and psychiatric acuity. Readmission to the hospital was assessed at 30 days and after 6 months. Patients with coexisting substance disorders spent fewer days in the hospital, but were rehospitalized at a higher rate both within 30 days and (significantly) after 6 months. These results suggest that the revolving-door pattern of service utilization is also present in managed care environments.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
