Cost pressures in the Canadian hospital drug market, 2006-2014: H82-24/2016-PDF

Pressions sur les coûts du marché pharmaceutique des hôpitaux du Canada, 2006-2014.

"The sale of drugs dispensed in hospitals represents a relatively small component of the Canadian pharmaceutical market (13%), but is nonetheless an emerging market segment. The rates of growth in drug expenditures for in-patient and out-patient settings in Canada are analyzed in this study and compared to foreign markets, with a focus on the impact of high-cost drugs. The analysis provides policy makers with insight into the cost pressures in the Canadian hospital market and illustrates how it compares internationally to the seven Patented Medicine Prices Review Board comparator countries (PMPRB7: France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States)."
