Although cohort studies can measure the attributable costs of resistant infections, the reporting of results needs to be consistent and complete. The difficulty and associated research cost in conducting these studies increases when the three infection states are compared and matched.

A matching strategy may exclude patients with excess cost that should be measured, particularly if an intervention is hospital-wide.
