According to the study, “To reduce the unmet medical needs of patients with BPE, it is necessary to allow patients to be treated early and give them accurate information about the disease. Besides, access to medical care should be strengthened through continuous care focused on primary care.”

 

A research team led by Professor Kyu Sung Lee (Department of Urology, Samsung Medical Center) and Professor Munjae Lee(Department of Medical Device & Management & Research, SAIHST) published an article in a world-renowned ‘Journal of Clinical Medicine.’ The research analyzed the factor affecting the unmet medical needs of patients with benign prostate enlargement (BPE) based on the data taken from the 2009–2016 Korea Health Panel Study. The study was also funded by the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF) as part of the NRF research project, ‘Using ICT medical device to create social value for community care.’

 

The research results showed that “younger patients experienced a higher probability of unmet medical needs. Those with higher educational attainment had a lower chance of experiencing unmet medical needs. Patients with national health insurance were less likely to experience unmet medical needs. Besides, patients who experienced lying in a sickbed had a higher probability of experiencing unmet medical needs.”

  

The research team emphasized that “in order to reduce the unmet medical needs of patients with BPE, it is necessary to allow patients to be treated early and give them accurate information about the disease.” Also, “In cases where patients often ignore their health problems, such as BPE, policies should be enacted to raise awareness. Efforts such as health lectures on the prevention of BPE and the importance of early diagnosis are needed.”

  

The study also showed that “as chronic diseases, such as BPE, require continuous management, unmet medical care may be resolved by utilizing primary medical care. Through a community care project centered on primary medical care, there will be continuous management of diseases, and unmet medical care may be reduced by reinforcing medical accessibility for households receiving medical benefits.”
