The second section outlines methods for estimating the cost of physician services in Canada, whereas the third section deals with various sources that can be used to estimate pharmaceutical costs. Two recent Canadian cardiac economic evaluations are used in the final section to help illustrate the application of several Canadian health care resource cost sources described in this chapter. ESTIMATING HOSPITAL COSTS IN CANADA In Canada, acute-care hospitals are publicly funded through global-operating budgets.

DSS has been implemented relatively recently by VA. It is not known if facilities accurately distribute staff costs among departments or estimate the relative effort required to produce different health care products. Because VA physicians do not bill for their services, they do not have the same incentive that non-VA physicians have to document their work, therefore, VA databases do not reflect the same level of detail found in non-VA physician claims databases. For example, some VA sites do not record CATH procedures in a way that allows DSS to determine their cost (7).

There were also some statistically significant differences between the types of VA sites. Stays were shorter at NOESTIM sites than they were at GOODDATA sites. The NOESTIM sites were also less likely to perform PTCA than either the LACKCONF or GOODDATA sites and less likely to perform CATH than the LACKCONF sites. Patients at the GOODDATA sites were more likely to be discharged with a diagnosis of cardiogenic shock than were the patients from the other sites. Patients at the GOODDATA sites were more likely to have a diagnosis of pulmonary edema than the LACKCONF sites.
