Original Research

Melanoma is the fifth most common malignancy among men and the sixth most common malignancy among women in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimated that in 2018, 91,270 new cases of invasive melanoma will be diagnosed in the United States, and the disease will result in approximately 9320 deaths.
It’s About the Total Cost of Care
In the United States, colorectal cancer (CRC) is the fourth most common cancer diagnosed among men and women and the second leading cause of death from cancer.1 The majority of cases of CRC can be prevented by the detection and removal of noncancerous adenomatous polyps (adenomas).
As the US healthcare system moves away from fee-for-service (FFS) payments, alternative payment models (APMs) in healthcare are emerging that reward quality of care over quantity of services.
In 2018, acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is estimated to account for 1.1% of new cancer diagnoses and 1.8% of cancer deaths in the United States.

Real-World Drug Prescribing and Utilization Studies Can Inform Optimized Patient Care and Insurance Coverage
Diabetes mellitus imposes a substantial clinical and economic burden on the US healthcare system. National estimates reported in 2017 indicate that 9.4% of the US population, or 30.3 million Americans, have diabetes; however, only 23.1 million have actually been diagnosed with the disease, which means that 7.2 million people (or 23.8% of those with diabetes) were undiagnosed.
In the United States, more than 80% of all patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) initiate dialysis with hemodialysis, and current reports indicate that this trend has changed little over the past 2 decades.
The Challenge of Maintaining Vascular Access in Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease
During the later weeks of pregnancy, pregnant women are often concerned with suspected leakage of amniotic fluid, which, whether preterm or at term, requires evaluation and medical intervention. The rupture of membranes occurs in an estimated 8% to 10% of full-term pregnancies.
Interventions to Reduce Avoidable Pregnancy-Related Emergency Department Visits
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic, lifelong disorder of the gastrointestinal tract associated with an unpredictable relapsing and remitting disease course. Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD) are 2 common phenotypes of IBD. Patients with IBD often have considerable symptom burden despite appropriate treatment, and IBD frequently leads to debilitating complications that may require hospitalization, surgery, and/or the escalation of therapy.
