Variations in Resource Use and Costs of Hospital Care in Manitoba
Hospital expenditures comprise over 40% of provincial healthcare spending. As well, hospital expenditures have increased over the past several years. This study aimed to identify drivers of hospital expenditures, over time. The study team used hospital expenditure data along with administrative health records to examine several factors, which may be related costs; for example, whether costs are being driven by sociodemographic changes in the patient population. As well, this project took an in-depth exploration of the financial data recorded across the province.
