ABJHI Supplying Data on Incidence and Prevalence of OA in Alberta
To ensure the decision support tool is accurate and useful, the system dynamics model is being populated with relevant data on the demand and the available supply of services and resources for osteoarthritis health care. These data are being obtained from multiple sources:
- ABJHI is supplying data to determine such measures as incidence and prevalence of OA in Alberta.
- The Bone and Joint Health Strategic Clinical Network’s Arthritis Working Group and Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Working Group are providing advice on the model’s structure and process and the factors and data sources to include in it.
- Alberta Health Services, Alberta’s Ministry of Health, and Statistics Canada are other sources of data.
The tool will be updated and the system dynamics model populated with new data as they become available.Share:
