Abstract
Accelerated surgical stay programs represent a multi-modal, multi-disciplinary concept to reduce postoperative morbidity, hospitalisation and convalescence based upon recent advantages in surgical pathophysiology and pain treatment. Preliminary data from a variety of surgical procedures suggest major improvements in quality of surgical care and cost reduction and call for further controlled or large-size multicenter studies.

Abstract
The clinical effects and financial impact of a change in prescribing habits from routine to occasional use of perioperative bronchodilators, following the presentation of drug information, were assessed retrospectively by comparing the outcomes of patients admitted for major thoracic surgery. Eighteen of 24 (75%) patients in Period A (prior to change) received salbutamol bronchodilator therapy versus 10 of 17 (59%) in Period B (following the change) (p = .448). Of the patients who did receive salbutamol aerosols, the mean dose in grams per patient was greater in Period A than in Period B (6.85 +/- 5.96 vs. 2.64 +/- 4.44 respectively p

Abstract
Several studies have shown thromboprophylaxis of any kind to be more cost-effective than no prophylaxis or general diagnostic surveillance and selective treatment. Little has been written on low molecular weight heparins from the cost-effectiveness point of view. This preliminary study shows low molecular weight heparin to be more cost-effective than standard low-dose heparin in most situations of prophylaxis.

Abstract
Most surgeries are done on a day-stay basis. Recovery assessment by phone points (RAPP) is a smartphone-based application (app) to evaluate patients after day surgery. The aim of this study was to estimate the cost-effectiveness of using RAPP for follow-up on postoperative recovery compared with standard care.
This study was a prospective parallel single-blind multicentre randomized controlled trial. Participants were randomly allocated to the intervention group using RAPP or the control group receiving standard care. A cost-effectiveness analysis was performed based on individual data and included costs for the intervention, health effect [quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs)], and costs or savings in health-care use.
The mean cost for health-care consumption during 2?weeks after surgery was estimated at €37.29 for the intervention group and €60.96 for the control group. The mean difference was €23.66 (99% confidence interval -46.57 to?-?0.76; P=0.008). When including the costs of the intervention, the cost-effectiveness analysis showed net savings of €4.77 per patient in favour of the intervention. No difference in QALYs gained was seen between the groups (P=0.75). The probability of the intervention being cost-effective was 71%.
This study shows that RAPP can be cost-effective but had no effect on QALY. RAPP can be a cost-effective tool in providing low-cost health-care contacts and in systematically assessing the quality of postoperative recovery.

Abstract
Medical tourists are defined as individuals who intentionally travel from their home province/country to receive medical care. Minimal literature exists on the cost of postoperative care and complications for medical tourists. The costs associated with these patients were reviewed.
Between February 2009 and June 2013, 62 patients were determined to be medical tourists. Patients were included if their initial surgery was performed between January 2003 and June 2013. A chart review was performed to identify intervention costs sustained upon their return.
Conservatively, the costs of length of stay (n = 657, $1,433,673.00), operative procedures (n = 110, $148,924.30), investigations (n = 700, $214,499.06), blood work (n = 357, $19,656.90), and health professionals' time (n = 76, $17,414.87) were summated to the total cost of $1.8 million CAD.
The absolute denominator of patients who go abroad for bariatric surgery is unknown. Despite this, a substantial cost is incurred because of medical tourism. Future investigations will analyze the cost effectiveness of bariatric surgery conducted abroad compared with local treatment.
