Cost-effectiveness analysis

By Jeroen Luyten and Cate Henderson


© Springer International Publishing AG 2017. Economic evaluation of healthcare programs seeks to compare treatments and preventive measures in terms of their efficiency, that is, their ability to generate health and well-being relative to the costs incurred. This chapter provides an introduction to one particular but widely used evaluation technique: cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA). We present the main conceptual elements of a CEA, measurement techniques that are used, and the challenges and limitations, and we discuss the final interpretation of results within the context of the mental health field.status: publishe
