Quantitative, Objective Data Focused on the Treatment of Pneumonia Requiring Hospitalization

In 2014, US healthcare spending exceeded $3.0 trillion with nearly 1/3 spent on hospitalizations. Informed by real-world data from an Electronic Health Record (EHR) database of clinical and administrative records spanning 273 million encounters for 60 million patients in 600+ hospitals across the US, this report estimates 30% of all hospital discharges involve treatment of infectious organisms.

Pneumonia is responsible for an estimated 12% of all hospital stays. At an average cost of $15,500 per occurrence, we estimate that hospitalizations for severe infections account for around $212 billion in annual spending or 7% of total healthcare expenditure. In this report, we conduct an in-depth analysis of pneumonia patient characteristics, medication management, costs, and laboratory testing.

Gram-negative bacteria are the likely causative agents of most pneumonia infections and physicians treat most of these patients with levofloxacin, ceftriaxone, and azithromycin. This report provides quantitative, objective data using real-world patient encounters and reflects real physician decisions and encounter characteristics (e.g. patient response to therapy and outcomes) in key areas, such as antimicrobial stewardship.
