Recovery from pneumonia can be a lengthy process, and subsequent hospital readmissions, as well as complications arising from multiple comorbidities, should also be considered when estimating the cost.

Document Highlights

This briefing aims to establish if there is a relationship between pneumonia hospitalization in the elderly population and measures of quality of life that have financial implications for the Canadian health care system, such as alternate level of care days, re-hospitalization, and discharge to home or residential care. This briefing also aims to estimate the difference in resource utilization and costs associated with pneumonia hospitalization compared with non-pneumonia patients.
