Some of these differences may have occurred simply because cost differs by center, in which case national tariffs need not agree with the cost in any single center. Others may have more to do with differences in the levels of aggregation that are employed by the different data sources than they do with the fact that some estimates are national and some are local. For example, had Beck et al. compared service-specific costing to costing based on center-specific average cost per day, they might have seen similar kinds of differences, particularly for the cost gradient between different levels of patient severity.

Successful economic assessments conducted as part of clinical trials require a commitment to carry out such assessments. This commitment is characterized by early planning of the economic component of the trial, alerting the clinical investigators at the outset that the economic data will be collected along with the clinical data, and expecting all participants in the study to contribute both clinical and economic data to the study. In contrast, less successful economic assessments tend to have the clinical study designed independently and in advance of the economic study, the clinical investigators are recruited before the economic study is in place, and the economic study is introduced just as the trial initiates enrollment.
