Purpose: The purpose of this study was to conduct a systematic review to investigate the socio-economic benefits of the poison
control center (PCC) and to assess whether telephone counseling at the poison control center affects the frequency of emergency
room visits, hospitalization, and length of stay of patients with acute poisoning.
Methods: The authors conducted a medical literature search of the PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library databases. Two
reviewers evaluated the abstracts for eligibility, extracted the data, and assessed the study quality using a standardized tool. Key
results such as the cost-benefit ratio, hospital stay days, unnecessary emergency room visits or hospitalizations, and reduced hos pital charges were extracted from the studies. When meta-analysis was possible, it was performed using RevMan software
(RevMan version 5.4).
Results: Among 299 non-duplicated studies, 19 were relevant to the study questions. The cost-benefit ratios of PCC showed a
wide range from 0.76 to 36 (average 6.8) according to the level of the medical expense of each country and whether the study
included intentional poisoning. PCC reduced unnecessary visits to healthcare facilities. PCC consultation shortened the length of
hospital stay by 1.82 (95% CI, 1.07-2.57) days.
Conclusion: The systematic review and meta-analysis support the hypothesis that the PCC operation is cost-beneficial. However,
when implementing the PCC concept in Korea in the future, it is necessary to prepare an institutional framework to ensure a cost effective model.
