  • 1HealthPartners Research Foundation, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.


Methods used to compare the value of clinical preventive services based on two criteria-clinically preventable burden (CPB) and cost effectiveness (CE)-are described. A companion article provides rankings of clinical preventive services and discusses its uses for decision-makers; this article focuses on the methods, challenges faced, and solutions. The authors considered all types of data essential to measuring CPB and CE for services recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and developed methods essential to ensuring valid comparisons of different services' relative value.
