  1. 1p-values are from mixed effects logistic regression models that controlled for the number of hospitalizations. P-values reflect the comparison of the cost in the AZ period relative to the cost in the AMB period
  2. 2Reported means are least squared means from mixed effects regression models that controlled for the number of hospitalizations
  3. All costs are rounded to the nearest dollar. All costs are means (lower 95% confidence interval to upper 95% confidence interval)
  4. Note: AMB = Amphotericn; AZ = Azole; FLU = flunconazole; VOR = voriconazole; Pharm = pharmacy; Lab = Laboratory.
