The Institute of Health Economics Releases IHE In Your Pocket 2017

The IHE is pleased to announce the release of IHE In Your Pocket 2017 – a pan-Canadian handbook of health economic statistics, which includes the most currently available data on the economic burden of illness, health care resources, health behaviours, health status and demographics, and health system performance.

IHE In Your Pocket is a compact, comprehensive, and comparative overview of the economic aspects of the Canadian health care system. It has been revised every second year since 2006.

As done previously, IHE In Your Pocket 2017 includes aggregate costs, utilization and cost data for separate sectors or provider groups, population indicators, and system-wide performance indicators. Building on where new data has become available, this version also includes expanded components, notably pharmaceuticals and long-term care. Data comparing provinces and countries that have similar levels of economic development to Canada are also provided.
