Service overview

It is important to seek input from a health economist in design phase of a study as there are wide variety of economic evaluation methods and techniques that can be employed, including:

Costing study
Studies that quantify the overall costs associated with different diseases. These costs-of-illness studies are often used in advocacy and outline a problem, but don’t provide a solution.

Used when two interventions produce an equal outcome and so only costs need to be compared.

Cost-benefit analysis
Applied when both costs and benefits are quantified in monetary terms. It helps predict if the benefits of the policy outweigh its costs and by how much relative to other alternatives.

Cost-effectiveness analysis
This is a tool that compares the costs and health effects of an intervention and the results can help inform decision makers in resource allocation.

Cost-utility analysis
A form of cost-effectiveness analysis in which outcomes are quality-adjusted on a 0-1 scale, in which 0 is a heath state equivalent to death and 1 is full health.
