Abstract

Objectives To obtain future research basis of Korean Medicine for total knee arthroplasty patient by analyzing medical and Korean Medical service utilization and treatment duration. Methods Data sampling was performed on Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service patient data of 2015 (Confidence level of 97%) to analyze patients' medical and Korean Medical service tendency. Sampling groups were divided into two groups; i) Patients who completed their treatment within 5 months of total knee arthroplasty, ii) Patients who continued their treatment after 5 months of total knee arthroplasty, to investigate patients' medical and Korean Medical service tendency and individual characteristics were carefully monitored. Results It was confirmed that total of 1,655 patients had gone through total knee arthroplasty out of 1,453,486 patients who were gathered for sampling. First sampling group (Patients who completed their treatment within 5 months of total knee arthroplasty) was 287 patients and second sampling group (Patients who continued their treatment after 5 months of total knee arthroplasty) was 385 patients. The proportion of patients who visited Korean Medical service in first sampling group was lower than that of second sampling group. Conclusions It was confirmed that medical and Korean Medical service and cost consumed by second group (Patients who continued their treatment after 5 months of total knee arthroplasty) was higher than that of first group (Patients who continued their treatment after 5 months of total knee arthroplasty). It is highly recommended to continue with further study for efficient medical and Korean Medical service and reduced cost.
