Controlling the rising costs of cardiovascular care
Date:1/24/2011

f the drug and increased mortality in Ontario and Quebec. However, given that angiotensin-receptor blockers have a cheaper and effective alternative, ACE inhibitors, restricting these drugs, as British Columbia currently does, would safely save money.

"Given a future of increasing economic uncertainty complicated by a demographic shift to an older population with a relatively shrinking tax base, measures are needed to deal with the rising health care costs," state the authors.

The study was conducted by a team of researchers from University of Montreal; Western University of Health Sciences (Pomona, USA); University of Toronto and the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences, Toronto; Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia; Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences, Vancouver, BC; McGill University Health Centre; University of Ottawa Heart Institute; Sunnybrook Health Services, Toronto and Institut universitaire de cardiologie et de pneumologie de Qubec.

The authors conclude that strategies like a restriction policy on angiotensin-receptor blockers should be considered to control the rising costs of cardiovascular care.
