  • Introduction to the CPPP special issue: Building the economic evidence
           base for pediatric psychology services.
    • Abstract: The aims of this Special Issue are to continue these ongoing efforts and accomplish the following: (a) disseminate data supporting the economic benefits, feasibility, and sustainability of pediatric psychology services; (b) highlight tools and measurement strategies relevant to the collection of economic data; and (c) provide further education regarding economic evaluation. This Special Issue contains eight articles highlighting issues relevant to building the economic evidence base in support of pediatric psychology services. The articles in this Special Issue highlight important efforts in our field to build the economic evidence base in support of pediatric psychology services and provide training and education to encourage future study by our pediatric psychology workforce. It is hoped that this Special Issue encourages readers to remain informed of relevant changes in health care financing and proactively consider how they can be involved in research (i.e., conducting full economic evaluations of pediatric psychology services), clinical (i.e., partnering with insurance companies to collect relevant economic data), and training (i.e., educating trainees on methods of economic evaluation) efforts necessary to advocate for our profession in the years ahead.

  • Predicting health care utilization and charges using a risk score for poor
           adherence in pediatric kidney transplant recipients.
    • Abstract: Pediatric kidney transplant recipients must follow a complicated regimen of timely adherence to immunosuppressant medication, routine blood work, and medical follow-up visits. Failure to adhere to the recommended regimen can result in medical complications and costly treatment. We developed a novel risk score to identify patients at risk for poor adherence behaviors and evaluated whether it would predict future health care utilization and charges. Our risk stratification score combined three simple pass/fail metrics of adherence derived directly from the electronic health record including standard deviation of immunosuppression drug levels, timely laboratory monitoring, and timely clinic visits as indicated by our clinical protocol. Risk for poor adherence was assessed over a three-month period. Linear regression was used to predict subsequent health care charges and utilization. Greater than 75% of patients had some degree of nonadherence risk during the study period, but there were no significant differences found on any outcomes for the overall score. However, when the individual components of the overall risk score were evaluated independently, patients with tacrolimus drug level standard deviation ≥2 (e.g., a marker of poor adherence) had greater health care utilization (e.g., hospitalizations) and increased total charges. Additionally, patients who did not follow up in clinic at least every 4 months had more ED visits and ED-related charges, but fewer hospitalizations. Regular clinic visits and minimizing drug level variation may deter future costly ED visits and hospitalizations. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Sustaining integrated behavioral health practice without sacrificing the
           continuum of care.
    • Abstract: This article describes how an innovative model of practice transformation, used by 4 integrated pediatric primary care practices over a 2 year grant period, promoted the practice of integrated primary care (IPC) behavioral health services. Practice transformation was possible through the implementation of an alternative billing strategy to enhance sustainability, effective utilization of clinical productivity to provide meaningful patient services, and the identification of strategies to further the practice of IPC. Specifically, we provide: (a) a description of the diversity of billing strategies typically used by pediatric practices utilizing integrated care and how those strategies are impacted by state health care policies; (b) a description of the grant, including the service delivery model, implementation phase, and data collection procedures; (c) results of implementation and billing/reimbursement data that were collected across the 4 practices; (d) an analysis of how billing strategies are critical in defining implementation strategies within pediatric integrated care; and (e) lessons learned about how billing strategies must be flexible and amenable to change over time to stay current with ever-changing health care policies and reimbursement models.

  • Cost-savings analysis of primary care behavioral health in a pediatric
           setting: Implications for provider agencies and training programs.
    • Abstract: This study investigated economic savings associated with primary care behavioral health (PCBH) in a diverse sample of 248 pediatric patients seen at a Federally Qualified Health Center. We sought to determine the (a) overall cost savings from PCBH and (b) incremental costs and savings of services provided by doctoral trainees versus full-time behavioral health employees (BHEs). Data were extracted from patient medical records for the 2015–2016 training year. We calculated the per-patient costs for BHEs (n = 5; served 223 patients) and trainees (n = 2; served 25 patients) from administrative data. Savings associated with PCBH were computed based on reductions in monthly health care charges after versus before the initial PCBH visit for each patient. There was a significant reduction in health care charges after an initial PCBH visit, with an overall (i.e., average across provider types) net savings of $38 per patient. Stated differently, each dollar spent on PCBH returned approximately $1.16 in reduced health care charges. There was no significant difference in cost-savings between BHEs and trainees. Uncertainty in several key study parameters (i.e., BHE salary, changes in health charges) may have influenced the results. These findings suggest that PCBH services with pediatric patients hold promise in terms of economic sustainability, including when trainees are involved in service delivery. Implications of the study findings for policymakers, provider agencies, and doctoral training programs in psychology are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Early childhood behavioral health integration activities and HealthySteps:
           Sustaining practice, averting costs.
    • Abstract: The practice of early childhood behavioral health (ECBH) integration in primary care settings promotes optimal care for families with young children while simultaneously improving health care utilization and averting unnecessary health care expenditures. Implementing ECBH integration activities across four domains—screening processes, prevention and health promotion, case-based consultation and intervention, and care coordination—has the potential to enhance the lifelong health and well-being of children and families. Unfortunately, billing and reimbursement for activities focused on prevention, early identification, and early childhood intervention in primary care settings presents challenges. The current article describes a financial analysis of a grant-funded project focused on ECBH activities delivered by pediatric psychologists and psychology fellows. A business case for HealthySteps (HS), an evidence-based intervention to enhance primary care in early childhood, was applied in a site serving a high risk pediatric population. Delivering HS in this pediatric primary care setting yielded significant cost aversion across both maternal and child level interventions. Estimated costs averted exceeded the program operating costs of HS implementation in this setting. In a changing health care landscape that is shifting away from volume-based, fee-for-service models to value-based, cost-control models, optimizing the potential of primary care for early childhood populations is necessary to improve health outcomes and reduce the total cost of care across the life span.

  • Single (aim)-minded strategies for demonstrating value to payers for youth
           with medical complexity.
    • Abstract: In the current financial climate, health care institutions and providers experience substantial challenges in achieving the Triple Aim in health care reform (i.e., reducing costs, improving health, improving care). The present study describes the successes and challenges of garnering payment for a population health program, Novel Interventions in Children’s Health care (NICH), for youth with both medical and social vulnerability. Using 4 real patient scenarios, this study provides examples of how to use economic data to demonstrate program value to key stakeholders (i.e., insurance providers, hospital administrators) and obtain authorization and payment for services. Health care utilization and cost data were retrieved through retrospective review of patient medical records and hospital financial records. NICH utilized distinct strategies to overcome systemic barriers, demonstrate value, and show need for intervention to key stakeholders. Strategies included highlighting patients’: (a) history of utilization, (b) accumulated medical expenditures, (c) projected costs for anticipated procedures, and (d) social risk linked to poor health and high utilization. We describe each effort using real patient scenarios that feature varied medical conditions including Type 1 diabetes, chronic pain, and failure-to-thrive. Economic data can be a useful tool in garnering support for behavioral health interventions. And while these data offer programs like NICH the opportunity to make the case for investing in an alternative intervention, the strategies utilized by NICH to advocate for services can be applied by pediatric psychologists working with youth with medical complexity and social vulnerability.

  • Development of the Resource Use Questionnaire (RUQ–P) for families with
           preschool children with neurodevelopmental disorders: Validation in
           children with autism spectrum disorder.
    • Abstract: Cost-effectiveness and burden-of-illness research of pediatric neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) requires accurate and comprehensive captures of health and non-health-sector costs and family out-of-pocket costs. The objective was to develop and validate the Resource Use Questionnaire—Preschool (RUQ–P) as a tool to capture intersectoral service use and family out-of-pocket costs in preschool children with an NDD from multiple-payer perspectives. The major categories of the RUQ–P include primary intervention, such as programs based on applied behavior analysis; childcare or school programs; other interventions, such as speech−language therapy or occupational therapy; other resources, such as medications, respite support, complementary and alternative medicine, and other services and treatments; productivity losses; and government subsidies and charitable gifts. The RUQ–P targeted preschool children ages 2–6 years with an NDD with completion by interview with the primary caregiver. It underwent pilot testing and was validated in a cohort of children in the Preschool Autism Treatment Impact study comparing early preschool behavioral interventions in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, Canada. The RUQ–P collected data on resource use; service intensity; and out-of-pocket costs, such as hourly rates, costs of materials, and travel costs. A cost analysis was undertaken to determine whether the RUQ–P was responsive to differences between treatment groups and changes over time. Modifications were subsequently made to reduce respondent burden and missing data (i.e., more closed-ended and structured questions and removal of travel costs). Versions of the RUQ are being developed for 3 additional age groups, and the tool is being further validated in observational and experimental studies.

  • An introduction to cost-effectiveness acceptability curves.
    • Abstract: Recent changes to health care reimbursement and funding have made cost-effectiveness analyses more relevant for pediatric psychologists. Evaluating and presenting uncertainty around cost-effectiveness estimates is important for proper reporting of results and represents one area where pediatric psychologists may have limited training. This article seeks to address this gap by providing pediatric psychologists with an introduction to cost-effectiveness acceptability curves (CEACs), a method for reporting and presenting uncertainty that is consistent with the Consolidated Health Economic Evaluation Reporting Standards. Using practical examples, we provide information about how CEACs are constructed and interpreted. By supporting a greater understanding about uncertainty in cost-effective estimates, we hope that this article aids pediatric psychologists in their production and consumption of cost-effectiveness research.

  • An international perspective on ethical considerations in health economic
           evaluation: A primer for pediatric psychologists.
    • Abstract: As health care systems grapple with economic pressures, the need to demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of interventions and services in pediatric clinical psychology to inform budget decision-making is becoming more urgent. Ethical considerations in economic evaluation overlap with those of clinical research related to respect for persons, concern for welfare, and justice, and extend beyond these to include those related to the production of economic evidence by clinical psychologist researchers through the conduct of economic evaluation, and to the consumption of this evidence by budget decision-makers. Consideration of ethical issues begins with the process of selecting a technology by researchers for evaluation. Guidelines for the conduct of economic evaluation promote the maximization of benefits in terms of quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) which may introduce inequity in how these benefits are distributed across the population. Equity concerns are addressed in diverse ways across jurisdictions. A health technology assessment framework that considers economic, effectiveness, and safety evidence alongside social, legal, environmental, and ethical concerns has been adopted in public payer systems to widen the scope of information for budget decision-makers. These decision-makers often use value frameworks that regard ethical issues alongside other evidence. As clinical psychologists are increasingly compelled to demonstrate the economic value of new and existing interventions, ethical concerns are becoming more prominent in health system decision-making and pediatric clinical psychologists can play a larger role among decision-making bodies. Knowledge of these issues will prove critical to sound development of behavioral and psychosocial interventions in the U.S. and internationally.
