Abstract

Economists have devised three main techniques to evaluate healthcare treatments: cost-benefit analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis and cost-utility analysis. Many countries have established regulatory authorities to examine the clinical safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness of a product. Currently, economic evaluations play a limited role in decision-making but may increase in importance as healthcare costs continue to rise.
