Background Patients with chronic diseases, like patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), have long history of care driven by multiple determinants (medical, social, economic, etc.). Although in most epidemiological studies, analyses of health care determinants are computed on single health care events using classical multivariate statistical regression methods. Only few studies have integrated the concept of treatment trajectories as a whole and studied their determinants. Methods All 18… Expand

Healthcare utilization after a first hospitalization for COPD: a new approach of State Sequence Analysis based on the '6W' multidimensional model of care trajectories
A typology of CTs one year after a first hospitalization for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is proposed, which allows for a better representation of the sequences of healthcare use in the real world, supporting data-driven decision making. Expand
Distance-based Classification and Regression Trees for the analysis of complex predictors in health and medical research
DB-CART is demonstrated by using it to expand upon previously published dose-response analysis of stroke rehabilitation data, and it is demonstrated how this extension is compatible with other extensions to CART, including a recently published method for predicting care trajectories in chronic disease.

Clustering clinical and health care processes using a novel measure of dissimilarity for variable-length sequences of ordinal states
A novel measure of dissimilarity is presented for comparing two or more variable-length ordinal sequences that can be used in conjunction with conventional clustering methods to identify patterns in patient progression trajectories. Expand
Care consumption of people with multiple sclerosis: A multichannel sequence analysis in a population-based setting in British Columbia, Canada.
The distinct patterns of care consumption, which were reminiscent of the heterogeneity of MS itself, may facilitate health service planning and evaluation, and provide a novel outcome measure in health research. Expand

Modelling treatment trajectories to optimize the organization of renal replacement therapy and public health decision-making.
A model based on patients' treatment trajectories can improve the description and understanding of RRT as a dynamic phenomenon and its use for simulation may help professionals and decision-makers to optimize renal organization and care. Expand
Ten-years trends in renal replacement therapy for end-stage renal disease in mainland France: Lessons from the French Renal Epidemiology and Information Network (REIN) registry.
Kidney transplantation and survival significantly improved despite the heavier patient burden, however, the rise in type 2 diabetes-related ESRD and the stable high rate of emergency dialysis start remain major issues. Expand
Mining care trajectories using health administrative information systems: the use of state sequence analysis to assess disparities in prenatal care consumption
The approach demonstrates that data from health administrative information systems could be used to describe prenatal care, and the integration of heterogeneous sources of data, including contextual information, might help identifying areas that require health promotion actions toward vulnerable populations, such as pregnant women.

Predictors of early mortality among incident US hemodialysis patients in the Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS).
Inadequate predialysis nephrology care was strongly associated with mortality during this period, highlighting the potential benefits of contact with a nephrologist at least 1 mo before HD initiation. Expand

It is demonstrated that patients' age has a major impact on waitlisting practices, even for patients with no comorbidity or disability, whose survival would likely be improved by transplantation compared with dialysis. Expand
Factors affecting outcomes in patients reaching end-stage kidney disease worldwide: differences in access to renal replacement therapy, modality use, and haemodialysis practices
For most patients with ESKD worldwide who are treated with in-centre haemodialysis, overall survival is poor, but longer in some Asian countries than elsewhere in the world, and longer in Europe than in the USA, although this gap has reduced. Expand
Variation between centres in access to renal transplantation in UK: longitudinal cohort study
It is found that recipients’ age, ethnicity, and primary renal diagnosis were associated with the likelihood of accessing the waiting list or receiving a transplant and significant variation in access to renal transplantation exists between centres within the UK that cannot be explained by differences in case mix.

The access to a renal graft was most affected by the presence of malignancy and least affected bythe presence of DM, and international differences in access to transplantation were only partly due to co-morbid variability. Expand
Simulation model of renal replacement therapy: predicting future demand in England.
