Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis for Health Care Decision Making—Emerging Good Practices: Report 2 of the ISPOR MCDA Emerging Good Practices Task Force
This second Task Force report provides emerging good-practice guidance on the implementation of MCDA to support health care decisions, including: a checklist to support the design, implementation and review of an MCDA; guidance to support the implementation of the checklist, the order in which the steps should be implemented, and incorporating budget constraints into an MCDA; an overview of the skills and resources required to implement MCDA, including the available software; and future research directions.

Issue Highlights


Challenges in Using MCDA for Reimbursement Decisions on New Medicines?


Estimating the Cost-Effectiveness of Implementation: Is Sufficient Evidence Available?
In this study, Sophie Whyte et al. demonstrate the use of diffusion curves and multi-period analysis to estimate the value of investing in implementation activities to increase uptake of natriuretic peptide testing.
