Abstract

Aim. To estimate economic efficiency of a complex of resource-saving activities for cardiovascular diseases prevention at a workplace.

Material and methods. The complex of activities including preventive examination and preventive intervention with their efficacy monitoring was performed in 523 people of a technical research institute staff. Preventive examination included evaluation procedures for cardiovascular diseases and their risk factors (89,5% of respondents). Preventive intervention based on risk factors modification was performed in intervention group. Control group included staff not participating in preventive consultation. Costs associated with cardiovascular diseases and risk factors (medical care consumption and temporary disability) and cost- efficiency analysis was performed.

Results. High prevalence of arterial hypertension, metabolic and psychoemotional risk factors at workplace was found in preventive examination. Significant reduction in blood pressure (BP) and total cholesterol (TC) plasma level as well as a tendency to cardiovascular risk (CVR) decrease was reached due to preventive intervention. Costs associated with cardiovascular diseases and their risk factors in intervention group were lower than these in control group (168 584 and 489 500 rbl per 100 people yearly, respectively). Cost- efficiency analysis shown that costs of BP, TC plasma level and CVR reduction were moderate in intervention group. Costs were not efficient in control group.

Conclusion. Implementation of cardiovascular diseases prevention at workplace is economically efficient both for society and for employer.
