Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The authors examined the proposition that the patient charge for a labor-and-delivery admission can be used as a crude index of pregnancy outcomes. They are developing models of the relationships of certain complications of pregnancy to this outcome variable. These models could be used to estimate potential cost benefits associated with specific prenatal interventions and assist in identifying the areas that should be included in the authors' expert system.
