Abstract：ObjectiveTo study the related influencing factors of hospitalization expenses for children with pneumonia in pediatric wards of the gradeA tertiary Chinese medicine hospital, in order to provide information for reducing the economic burden of children with pneumonia. Methods Totally 2186 cases of children with pneumonia who were hospitalized in the pediatric wards of the grade-A tertiary chinese medicine hospital from July 2016 to September 2018 were observed to analyze the general information, medical status and hospitalization expenses of the children, and explore the related factors affecting the hospitalization expenses of children with pneumonia. Results The total hospitalization cost of 2186 children was 7.78 million yuan, of which the medical expenses, nursing expenses and food expenses were relatively small. The results of multiple linear regression analysis showed that the age, disease classification, comorbidity, hospitalization time, payment method, disease outcome, and discharge diagnosis of children with pneumonia in pediatric ward were the influencing factors of self-paying hospitalization expenses. The difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). Conclusion In children with pneumonia in the pediatric ward of Chinese medicine hospitals, reducing the incidence of comorbidities and shortening the hospital stay can help reduce hospitalization costs. In addition, it is necessary to carry out comprehensive reforms of separate medicines, appropriately reduce the cost of medicines, increase the proportion of social insurance payments, and give full play to the role of medical insurance, which will help to further reduce the economic burden of children and their families.
