PROVINCIAL CASE-COSTING INITIATIVES Over the last few years, case-costing initiatives have been developed and implemented in the provinces of Alberta and Ontario. British Columbia is currently developing a similar case-costing system. Canadian health economists have benefited greatly from the advent of these systems, as they have provided a very good source for reliable hospital-costing data. In the following section, two provincial case-costing systems currently established are described: Health Costing in Alberta (6) and the Ontario Case-Costing Project (OCCP) (7).

Nonstandardized Sources for Hospital Resource Costs It may be necessary to base hospital resource costs on the hospital(s) without a sophisticated costing system. Hospitals may only be able to provide summary fiscal departmental expense and workload data. This allows for estimation of certain micro-unit Chapter 3 / Health Care Costs in Canada 33 costs, such as the cost per day in a particular nursing ward, the cost for an emergency room visit, or the cost-per-workload measurement unit in the hospital’s immunology laboratory.

Indeed, if the system is properly implemented, the cost estimates should be more sensitive to variation in resource use than the cost-adjusted charges used in non-VA CE studies. There are several concerns about the accuracy of DSS (7). 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.
