【Abstract】 Objective To analyze the status and equity of health expenditure among urban and rural residents in the process of achieving universal health coverage,giving policy suggestions.Methods From the results of National Health Services Survey in China,2013,data of Shandong Province were collected,involving a total of 33 060 individuals from 12 006 families(10 391 from 6 006 urban families,and 22 669 from 6 000 rural families).Quinquepartite method was adopted to classify the annual household income.The status and equity of health expenditure of the participants were analyzed by residency place and level of income.Results The rural families had lower median annual healthcare expenditure but higher median total cost per outpatient visit,and median total cost per hospitalization compared with the urban families(P<0.05).The median total cost per hospitalization differed significantly between rural families by level of annual household income(P<0.05),but median annual healthcare expenditure and median total cost per outpatient visit did not(P>0.05).The median total cost per outpatient visit did not vary significantly between the urban families by level of annual household income(P>0.05).Higher median annual healthcare expenditure and median cost per hospitalization were positively associated with higher annual household income in the urban families(P<0.05).From 2003 to 2016,the Engel coefficient of rural residents dropped from 41.81% to 29.76%,and that of urban residents was 27.58% in 2016.The ratio of annual health expenditure to income rose from 4.41% to 7.36% in rural residents while it dropped from 5.29% to 4.73% in urban residents during this period.The concentration curve of median annual rural household health expenditure almost coincided with the 45-degree line(CI=0.016 4),while that of median annual urban household health expenditure was below the egalitarian line(CI=0.092 1),the concentration curve of median annual urban and rural household health expenditure was below the 45-degree line(CI=0.039 0).The concentration curves of median annual cost of outpatient expenditure of rural residents,urban residents and all the residents were all above the 45-degree line.The CI value of paying outpatient expenditure with cash was -0.064 2,-0.094 1,-0.393 3,respectively,for all the residents,rural residents and urban residents.The hospitalization expenditure of the urban and rural residents with high income occupied most of the total hospitalization expenditure(CI=0.013 0).The concentration curve of the median total cost per outpatient visit in rural residents almost coincided with the 45-degree line(CI=-0.002 6).The concentration curve of the median annual hospitalization expenditure of urban residents was below the egalitarian line on the whole(CI=0.047 1).Conclusion Compared with urban areas,the median household healthcare expenditure is lower and median outpatient/inpatient expenditure per capita is higher in rural areas. In general,the equity of health expenditure in rural residents is worse than that of urban residents. Moreover,low income rural residents are found with higher ratio of annual household healthcare expenditure to annual household income,and higher ratios of annual outpatient and inpatient expenditure per family member to annual household income. In order to achieve universal health coverage,rural residents,especially those with low income,should be placed into priority groups whose health coverage should be enhanced,and the affordability of healthcare should be increased by improving the healthcare financing strategies and health insurance systems,and strengthening the interventions for reducing disease risks in low-income and middle-income rural residents.

【Abstract】 The distribution of medical resources in China is imbalanced nowadays. Most high-quality medical resources are distributed in tertiary hospitals,but not in primary healthcare institutions. Insufficient resources hinder primary healthcare institutions from playing their due role in promoting the development of the hierarchical medical system,to satisfy the health needs of residents. Therefore,the supply-side reform in pharmaceutical and healthcare fields is imperative. The "Healthy China 2030" Planning Outline put forward goals for realizing the innovation of the patterns of healthcare provision and achieving a mature and sound hierarchical medical system in an all-round way. The construction of a medical consortium is a way to promote the development of hierarchical medical system by integrating the local medical resources and allocating high-quality resources to primary care using a guided approach. We analyzed the structure of chronic disease management teams of medical consortium of Beijing Chao-Yang Hospital,Capital Medical University,consisting mainly of specialists from general hospitals,general practitioners and health managers from community healthcare institutions,detailed the teams' delivery process of contracted family doctor services,summarized the teams' features and positive role in promoting the development of hierarchical medical system,with a view to providing a reference for facilitating the full implementation of this system.

【Abstract】 Objective To study the research status of hypertension bidirectional referral criteria in China.Methods From June 20th to 30th,2017,we searched CNKI and Wanfang Data Knowledge Service Platform,and other electronic databases and websites for documents about hypertension bidirectional referral criteria in China.The included documents were divided to guidelines and research articles.We compared the guidelines by time of publishing for exploring the development of hypertension referral criteria in guidelines,and performed a summary analysis of the hypertension referral criteria in articles for estimating the application of such criteria.Results A total of three guidelines and eight articles were included.The three guidelines are 2009 Guidelines for Primary Prevention and Management of Hypertension in China(2009 guidelines),2014 Guidelines for Primary Prevention and Management of Hypertension in China(Revised Edition)(2014 revised guidelines),and 2017 Guidelines for Primary Prevention and Management of Hypertension in China(2017 guidelines).The hypertension bidirectional referral criteria contained in 2009 Guidelines and 2014 Revised Guidelines are consistent.In the 2017 guidelines,some items of the hypertension bidirectional referral criteria in these two guidelines were quantified and subdivided,and the acute upward referral criteria for hypertension were added,the downward referral criteria for hypertension were deleted.Neither guidelines nor research articles provided the evidence for the formulation of referral criteria.No articles used the same referral criteria and applied the referral criteria contained in the three above-mentioned guidelines.Moreover,no articles paid attention to the evaluation of such criteria,and specifically studied the development and application of such criteria.Conclusion The hypertension bidirectional referral criteria contained in the three guidelines have not been fully recognized.Furthermore,there is lack of studies specifically targeting such criteria.In view of this,it is suggested to formulate evidence-based,systematic and easy-to-use hypertension bidirectional referral criteria,to ensure the smooth implementation of the hierarchical medical system.

【Abstract】 Objective To evaluate the effectiveness of Somatostatin(SM) plus Ulinastatin(US) or/and Gabexate(GB) for the treatment of severe acute pancreatitis(SAP).Methods A total of 266 consecutive patients with SAP who received treatment during July 2008 to January 2018 were enrolled.Based on table of random number,they were divided into 4 groups,receiving SM,SM plus GB,SM plus US,SM plus US and GB,respectively.Clinical parameters including abdominal pain and distention relief time,normal autonomous respiration recovery time,normal heart rate recovery time,normal serum amylase recovery time,blood glucose recovery time,white blood count(WBC),C reaction protein(CRP),blood urea nitrogen(BUN),serum creatinine(Scr),hospitalization costs,length of stay(LOS) and cure rate,incidences of adverse reaction and mortality were analyzed.Results Both SM plus GB,and SM plus US groups needed less time for abdominal pain and distention relief,recovery of normal autonomous respiration,normal heart rate,normal serum amylase and normal blood glucose,and showed decreased WBC and CRP compared with SM group(P<0.05),as did SM plus US and GB group when compared with SM plus GB group or SM plus US group(P<0.05).SM plus GB,and SM plus US and GB groups also showed decreased BUN in comparison to SM group,as did SM plus US and GB group when compared with SM plus US group(P<0.05). Compared with SM group,both SM plus US group and SM plus US and GB group had higher hospitalization costs(P<0.05). SM plus US and GB group had higher hospitalization costs than SM plus US group(P<0.05). Furthermore,SM plus GB group and SM plus US group had shorter LOS compared with SM  group(P<0.05). In comparison with SM plus GB group or SM plus US group,the LOS was shorter in the SM plus US and GB group(P<0.05).  Significant differences in the cure rate,incidence of adverse reactions and mortality were detected by the overall comparison among the four groups(P<0.05). However,pairwise comparisons did not find obvious differences in the cure rate,incidence of adverse reactions and mortality(P>0.008 3). Conclusion SM is effective for SAP.Moreover,the effectiveness will be better if it is used in combination with US or GB,and far better if used in combination with both the two.

【Abstract】 Objective To develop an integrative long-term care services grading model for the elderly receiving home-based care,community-based care,or nursing facility-based care. Methods Item pool was established on the basis of literature review,theoretical analysis and qualitative interview. Delphi method was used to screen the items to form the Integrative Long-term Care Services Grading Questionnaire for the Elderly(ILCSGQE).Then the questionnaire was used to a survey,and according to the results,its items were revised,then the item system was determined finally,and the reliability and validity of the model〔Integrative Long-term Care Services Grading Model for the Elderly(ILCSGME) 〕 with the item system derived from the questionnaire was tested. Comprehensive scoring method,trisection method,and cluster analysis were used to calculate the total score,item grading of the ILCSGME,and dependency state grading covered by the ILCSGME,respectively. Results The final item system of the ILCSGME consists of 7 first-tier items and 119 second-tier items. The Cronbach's α for the 7 first-tier items ranged from 0.782 to 0.986,and the re-measured Pearson correlation coefficients were 0.917-0.980(P<0.05). 4 first-tier items,activities of daily living,cognitive ability,fall risk and pressure ulcer risk were selected from the most widely used and mature scales. But other 3 first-tier items,medical and nursing services,abnormal manifestations/symptoms and needs of self-care knowledge were developed by our research team. The results of Bartlett's sphericity test ranged from 0.745 to 0.883. The common factors extracted by principal component analysis were 4,3 and 1 in turn,explaining 68.044%,59.492% and 65.395% of the total variance,respectively. After confirmatory factor analysis,the revised common factors were 4,4 and 3,respectively. The weights of the 7 first-tier items were 0.24,0.15,0.15,0.12,0.12,0.11 and 0.11,respectively. The total score calculated by the comprehensive scoring method were divided into 5 grades:independent,low dependency,medium dependency,high dependency and very high dependency. The higher the grade,the lower the total score was,indicating the intensity or difficulty of care for the elderly is greater.Conclusion The 7 first-tier items in the ILCSGME were proved to have good reliability and validity. The comprehensive scoring method was easy to use when calculating the total score of the model,and the division of assessment for all grades of dependency state was good. So the model can comprehensively,concretely and accurately assess the dependence state of elderly people,and can provide an aid for the study of the classified pricing system of long-term care insurance.
