Definition

A switch corresponds to a modification of treatment within the product perimeter.

This is a switch when a patient is delivered another treatment of the defined perimeter, within a period considered too short to be a stop followed by an initiation of treatment. This period is the drop-out period *, and is defined by the user.

This indicator is available:

  • # patients: Distinct number of patients who switched to treatment

  • # units delivered: Number of units delivered (UC) for patients who switched to treatment

  • # average per year: Number of treatment switches divided by the number of months over the analysis period, multiplied by 12

  • # average per month: Number of treatment switches divided by the number of months over the analysis period

* The drop-out period corresponds to the time necessary to confirm the end of a treatment.

The switch is defined by two criteria:

  • Gain: This is the processing that is the subject of the switch (beneficiary of the switch)

  • Loss: This is the processing that precedes the switch (from the switch)
