Summary: We examined the association between optimal control of dyslipidemia and mortality and healthcare costs in patients with high risk for cardiovascular disease (HRCVD) between 2012-2016 in Alberta, Canada. HRCVD patients who were optimally controlled had lower mortality and incurred modestly higher costs, compared to those who were not. Secondary prevention patients with…

This study, published in PharmacoEconomics – Open, reports exploratory analysis of the provincial and nationwide costs of industry-sponsored drug clinical trials (CTs) in Canada. The costs of industry-sponsored drug CTs completed in 2016 were Can$2.1 billion. In addition to the creation of knowledge, these trials play an important role in alleviating the healthcare cost burden…
OBJECTIVES: To examine the resource use and healthcare costs for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Alberta, Canada between 2008 and 2016 and model the future costs to 2030.
Clinical research is funded by industry, governments, charities, and hospitals. It is important to know the economic commitment of the various funding bodies, but until now there has been no national source available which provides these data. We surveyed the major funders to provide such a measure. There is evidence that government and charity funding of medical research is a…
This study, published in the Journal of Critical Care, explores the association between strained ICU capacity and healthcare costs, and demonstrates the admissions to ICUs experiencing strain incur incremental costs, attributed to longer hospitalization and physician services.
Little is known about the resource use and cost burden of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) beyond the index event. We examined resource use and care costs during the first and each subsequent year, among patients with incident AMI.
BACKGROUND: Eplerenone has been demonstrated as being cost effective for the treatment of patients with systolic heart failure (HF) and mild symptoms in several jurisdictions; however, its cost effectiveness is unknown in the context of Alberta, Canada.
