Abstract

This book has presented the theory and methods of economic evaluations of health care programmes. When a new health improving technology becomes available, the relevant question is whether the increased costs of the health care technology are compensated for by increased health effects and cost savings elsewhere in the economy, so that benefits exceed costs.
