Importance Medicare beneficiaries who are also enrolled in Medicaid (dually enrolled beneficiaries) have drawn the attention of policy makers because they comprise the poorest subset of the Medicare population; however, it is unclear how their outcomes have changed over time compared with those only enrolled in Medicare (nondually enrolled beneficiaries). Objective To evaluate annual changes in all-cause mortality, hospitalization rates, and hospitalization-related mortality among dually enrolle...

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has had a global impact that has been unevenly distributed among and even within countries. Multiple demographic and environmental factors have been associated with the risk of COVID-19 spread and fatality, including age, gender, ethnicity, poverty, and air quality among others. However, specific contributions of these factors are yet to be understood. Here, we attempted to explain the variability in infection, death, and fatality rates by understanding th...

Background: The Corona pandemic requires hospitals to ensure care not only for Covid-19 patients and resources must be allocated accordingly. Objective: To provide hospitals with a planning model when to allocate resources to ICUs given a certain incidence of COVID-19 cases. Methods: The analysis included 334 cases from four adjacent counties south-west of Munich. From length of stay and type of ward (NOR (general ward), ICU) probabilities of case numbers within a hospital at a certain time poin...

Given that New York State's (NYS) was the first epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States (US), we were interested in potential racial/ethnic differences in pregnancy-related experiences among women pregnant during versus prior to the pandemic. We surveyed 1,525 women (18-44 years) proportionate to geographic and sociodemographic distribution between June 9, 20 and July 21, 20. We carried out bivariate analysis of various social and pregnancy-related factors by racial/ethnic identi...

Background null Hispanics in the United States are disproportionately affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). While social distancing and quarantining are effective methods to reduce its spread, Hispanics, who are more likely to be essential workers and live in multigenerational homes than non-Hispanics, may face challenges that limit their ability to carry out these preventative efforts. We elicited the experiences of Hispanic adults with social distancing and self-quarantining during the...

BACKGROUND Increasing evidence indicates that the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic had immediate health and social impact, disproportionately affecting certain socioeconomic groups. Assessing inequalities in risk of exposure and in adversities faced during the pandemic is critical to inform targeted actions that effectively prevent disproportionate spread and reduce social and health inequities. This study examines i) the socioeconomic and mental health characteristics of individuals working ...

This study develops an economic model for a social planner who prioritizes health over short-term wealth accumulation during a pandemic. Agents are connected through a weighted undirected network of contacts, and the planner's objective is to determine the policy that contains the spread of infection below a tolerable incidence level, and that maximizes the present discounted value of real income, in that order of priority. The optimal unique policy depends both on the configuration of the conta...

Objective null During the COVID-19 pandemic, federally qualified health centers rapidly mobilized to provide SARS-CoV-2 testing, COVID-19 care, and vaccination to populations at increased risk for COVID-19 morbidity and mortality. We describe the development of a reusable public health data analytics system for reuse of clinical data to evaluate the health burden, disparities, and impact of COVID-19 on populations served by health centers. null Materials and methods null The Multi-State Data Str...
