Abstract
AIMS: To estimate the proportion of patients who access to direct-acting antivirals agents (DAAs) for the treatment of hepatitisC in Argentina and to evaluate factors associated with failure to access to treatment.
METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional study of DAAs prescriptions written by centers participating in the telemedicine project ECHOTM-Hospital Italiano of Buenos Aires between January 2016 and February 2017.
RESULTS: A total of 143 consecutive prescriptions were evaluated; the global access was 70% (95% CI: 62%-77%). The only factor independently associated with failure to access to treatment was belonging to the public healthcare system [OR 4.98 (95% CI: 2.05- 12.09)] in comparison to belonging to private insurance or HMOs.
CONCLUSION: Patients with hepatitisC who belong to the public healthcare system are 4 times more likely to fail to access to treatment of hepatitisC than patients with private insurance or other kind of insurance.
