What is meant by “perspectives” in "Analysis should synthesize findings of costs and other economic burdens from the perspectives of the different stakeholders for whom such data are proposed to be collected as part of the supplement?"

Perspective of analysis means the data and analysis must match the level of focus. For example, analysis focused on a patient perspective will not include most hospital costs; likewise, analysis focused on a hospital perspective will not include patients' time off work. Awardees are encouraged to describe both their intended analysis and the data collection, explaining why and how they are from the same perspective of analysis.
