Julie Hands made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

The request was partially successful.

From: Julie Hands

Dear Ministry of Health,

I am currently undertaking a project on the economic benefit of different types of prosthetics in revision surgeries for hip arthroplasties. In relation to this I would like to request the following information under the Official Information Act.

Any help you could provide with supplying this information would be very much appreciated.

1.How may hip revision surgeries are undertaken in private hospitals each year versus public

2.How much is spent on hip revision surgeries a year?

3.How much is spent on rehabilitation, following hip revision surgery, a year?

4.What number of revision surgeries are funded a year by ACC. (Last five years)?

5.What was the average cost of a hip revision surgery in 2012 (total amount spent on patient including scans, post-operative rehabilitation etc).

6.Average length of post-operative hospital stay following a hip revision surgery?

7. Procurement policy for medical devices

Yours faithfully,

Julie Hands
