The task force created by the Ministry of Health to investigate irregularities in oncologic procedures in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul began minutiae analysis of 236 medical records. Of these, 143 are patients at the Cancer Hospital Professor Dr. Alfredo Abram in Campo Grande (MS). The rest are from other oncology services existing in the state in which they are being investigated 1,222 permits payment of high cost (APAC). The other three health units that provide cancer care in Campo Grande Regional Hospital of Mato Grosso do Sul, Campo Grande Benevolent Association / Home and Hospital Universitario Santa Maria Aparecida Pedrossian are also targets of the investigation task force.

The definition of what records are being analyzed, an essential step for the proof of irregularities, according to the following criteria: patients who underwent more than two types of procedures (such as surgery, clinics, radiotherapy and / or chemotherapy), patients who died during the treatment, advanced stage cancer and prolonged disease in the patient. According to Secretary of Strategic and Participative Management of the Ministry of Health, Odorico Monteiro, in these cases there is a greater possibility of incidence of irregularities, which makes them a prime target of the task force.

Miller emphasized that the task force is conducting a study comparing the cancer mortality in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul and Brazil. Let's make the crossing profile of cancer mortality in Mato Grosso do Sul, compared with the mortality profile of the disease in Brazil. You can then discuss which mortality pattern expected for each type of cancer, checking if the treatment protocols were applied, which would be expected mortality, and also its impact on patient survival, explains.

The members of the task force has been at the Cancer Hospital to investigate in situ the charts, which do not refer only to patients who have died, but also those who are alive after treatment. Among the signs of irregularities are charging procedures after the death of the patient, collection procedures in greater numbers than done, collection procedures even before its completion and use of subclinical doses. Through the charts you can also assess whether the treatments used correspond to the indicated and being reimbursed by the National Health System (SUS).

The task force was established by the Health Minister, Alexandre Padilha, last Tuesday (7). Investigations that the National Audit Office (SUS DENASUS) held since 2011 at the Cancer Hospital and the University Hospital of Campo Grande resulted in the recent Federal Police action on these two health institutions. When investigating distortions in their audits, the DENASUS relayed information to both the Federal Police as the Comptroller General (CGU). The Federal Police has already transferred the task force that wiretaps obtained in their investigations.

Cancer Hospital, have been requested from the administration of the unit information as the ratio of professionals serving in the unit, the contract for outsourced services, hospital infection control, authorization of the National Agency for Sanitary Surveillance (ANVISA) and registration data on hospital management systems (such as the National Register of Health Care / Cnes). Other services under investigation task force will also have analyzed the documentation and equipment.

Created by Ordinance 768, published Tuesday in the Official Gazette, the task force is composed of representatives from DENASUS, which coordinates the work, and members of the Department of Specialized Care (DAE) and the Department of Regulation, Evaluation and Control Systems (DRAC) of the Department of Health Care of the Ministry of Health, National Cancer Institute (Inca) and ANVISA.
