The British Columbia Medical and Hospital Atlas is a companion to the 2nd edition of The British Columbia Rx Atlas (2009). It provides medical and hospital services information comparable to that found for pharmaceuticals in the BC Rx Atlas (2009). The goal is to place the findings of The BC Rx Atlas (2009) in context, allowing those interested an opportunity to explore potential area-level interactions between spending and use of pharmaceuticals and medical and hospital services.
