About Economic Evaluation

Economic evaluations in healthcare compare the costs and outcomes of alternative health interventions. These analyses can provide valuable information to policy makers, payers, health professionals, patients, and the public about choices that affect health and the use of resources. Economic evaluation topic areas include cost studies (including cost of illness and resource use), cost comparison, budget impact analysis, thresholds and opportunity cost, trial-based economic evaluation, indirect health costs, value of information, as well as novel and social elements of value.
