"Better and less-invasive practices" boost Irish day case activity by 148%

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The adoption of "better and less-invasive practices" are seen by Ireland as being the main driver of a 148% increase in the number of day cases seen in public acute care hospitals over the last decade, and a 4.4% fall in average length of stay. These are among the "significant healthcare trends" described in a 2009 update of the report Health in Ireland: Key Trends, published yesterday by the country's Department of Health and Children. Capital investment increased by 192% in the period 1998-2007, against a 167% increase in total public health expenditure, from €5.7bn ($8.6bn) in 2000, to €15.2bn in 2008. This is the first update of the DoHC's 2007 report.
