The Cost of Hospital Stays: Why Costs Vary provides information about how certain factors can affect average costs of hospital stays for typical patients (excludes patients who transfer between acute care facilities, die in hospital, sign out of hospital before completing recommended course of care and stay in hospital longer than those who have a similar condition and/or procedure).

This report begins by providing the big picture on how much Canada spends on hospitals and in relation to total health expenditures. It then shows how new tools such as CMG+ can be used to estimate costs of hospital stays. Finally, the report provides insights on how certain factors can affect hospitalization costs for typical cases, such as the presence of other illnesses (beyond the most responsible reason for admission into hospital), the age of a patient, how many interventions are used during a patient's hospital stay, how and where a patient is treated and the type of interventions used.
