The cost of a single concussion in American high school football: a retrospective cohort study. Published in Concussion 2020.

Lay abstract:  The healthcare costs, or the costs incurred by the healthcare system, associated with a single concussion in American high school football are unknown.  We reviewed the records of 144 high school football players who received concussion care at our sports concussion center and calculated the direct healthcare costs associated with the appointments, imaging studies, and therapies received, when applicable.  We found each concussion results in about $800 of healthcare system spending.  A few factors were associated with greater costs, including visiting the emergency department and having symptoms for over 1 month.  Furthermore, the more symptoms an athlete had at their initial clinic visit, the higher total cost of care.  Understanding these costs can potentially help clinicians and researchers determine the best ways to maximize care while minimizing costs.

The Use of the EyeStat Device in Sport-Related Concussion

V-SCoRe has partnered with a third-party company, BlinkTBI, to use their EyeStat blink reflexometer to measure the blink reflex before and after sport-related concussion. These blink metrics provide an opportunity for objective metrics to diagnose and follow concussion. 

 

Economic Considerations in Concussion

V-SCoRe has a strong interest in understanding how the direct healthcare costs of concussion vary depending on clinical factors including by sport and demographic subgroups. The goal of these studies is to begin to consider the cost-effectiveness of various prevention and treatment strategies in sport-related concussion. For example, is upgrading a whole team’s football helmets a cost-effective strategy to prevent concussion.

 

Diversity in Concussion Science

V-SCoRe is collaborating experts across the country to understand how an athlete’s sociocultural background influences their experience of concussion and, in turn, how their concussion should be best managed. We are committed to understanding how race, gender and socioeconomic status influence concussion risk and recovery. We believe that personalized care in concussion must reflect an athlete’s background and these collaborative investigations are the first step.
