Estimated cost and payment by results tariff reimbursement for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis services across 14 specialist providers in England

2014 |

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is an increasingly important respiratory illness in the UK. Rising prevalence of disease, emerging treatments, development of clinical guidelines for diagnosis and management and a NHS England service specification increase demands on healthcare providers who are required to enhance capacity or reconfigure service to manage parents. The aim of this study was to map out the patient care pathways across service providers in England compared with pathways recommended by NICE guidelines and the NHS England Service Specification.
