The magnitude of Hospital cost increases in South Africa has grown in magnitude and is well documented. Figures show that hospitalization cost constitutes some 37% or more of medical schemes expenditure and it’s growing.
This fast growing and disproportionate increase in hospital cost is not unique to South Africa. It is an international trend. For this reason, a cost-effective alternative to general hospitalization, namely day hospitals, is considered to be an answer to curb hospitalization costs. Making use of day hospitals just makes sense!
In the United States and Australia, the split between number of acute and day hospitals are close to 50/50. However, in South Africa the split is approximately 75/25 or less, indicating that the private hospitalization market is controlled by hospitals groups. This, however, is changing as day hospitals are being constructed all over South Africa. The cost advantages that day hospitals offer health funders and patients is the stimulus to this improved balance between general and day hospital utilization.
60% or more of all surgical procedures can be performed in a day hospital, and it is estimated that only
7% of these procedures are currently performed in day hospitals.
