This project aims to develop a model for assessing the direct cost of SSIs borne by the hospital and the regional health service. The study was run by the Gaetano Pini Orthopaedic Institute in partnership with Aon Hewitt Risk & Consulting AGRC Italy and the University of Milan. Seven patients who developed an SSI during the ISChIA active prospective surveillance project were chosen for the study. A model for analysing the additional costs of an SSI was developed considering two different scenarios: hospital admission with diagnosis related groups (DRG) up coding attributable to the SSI and cases where the extra costs could be traced back to subsequent hospital admissions or outpatient procedures. Moreover, an analysis aimed at establishing the costs borne by the hospital and those borne by the regional health service was carried out.
