CADTH Work Highlighted in CIHI Report on Health Care Cost Drivers
November 23, 2011
CADTH’s contribution to evidence-based health care has been noted in a report from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). Health Care Cost Drivers: The Facts discusses the many competing pressures on health system decision-makers, and their reliance on health technology assessments for guidance. CADTH is recognized as a key producer of reviews and reports that support evidence-informed decisions and policies.
As CIHI notes, health system leaders need to scrutinize the introduction of new drugs and technologies and consider their value relative to other health system investments. Decision-makers can continue to rely on CADTH for the evidence, analysis, advice, and recommendations they need to make informed decisions. CADTH’s role in the optimal use of drugs and technologies is making an essential contribution to the health of Canadians.
