Population Health & Economic Outcomes
The CVC Population Health and Economic Outcomes team is actively involved in examining population-level issues related to access, delivery, treatment, and outcomes of heart disease in Alberta and Canada. Health care administrative databases serve as the cornerstone in assessing performance and providing feedback to improve quality of health care delivery at a population-level. Through its collaboration with the ministry of health (Alberta Health) and Alberta Health Services, CVC has access to large repositories of data on patients with cardiovascular disease. The CVC also works extensively with national databases from the Canadian Institutes of Health Information and Statistics Canada.
Our team utilizes empirical data from the population-health data repository to develop prediction models to estimate the current and future economic burden of cardiovascular disease on health care systems.
