Cost-Benefit Analysis: A method of comparing the cost of a program with its expected benefits in dollars (or other currency). The benefit-to-cost ratio is a measure of total return expected per unit of money spent. This analysis generally excludes consideration of factors that are not measured ultimately in economic terms. Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.Risk Assessment: The qualitative or quantitative estimation of the likelihood of adverse effects that may result from exposure to specified health hazards or from the absence of beneficial influences. (Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 1988)Costs and Cost Analysis: Absolute, comparative, or differential costs pertaining to services, institutions, resources, etc., or the analysis and study of these costs.Health Care Costs: The actual costs of providing services related to the delivery of health care, including the costs of procedures, therapies, and medications. It is differentiated from HEALTH EXPENDITURES, which refers to the amount of money paid for the services, and from fees, which refers to the amount charged, regardless of cost.Decision Making: The process of making a selective intellectual judgment when presented with several complex alternatives consisting of several variables, and usually defining a course of action or an idea.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Prospective Studies: Observation of a population for a sufficient number of persons over a sufficient number of years to generate incidence or mortality rates subsequent to the selection of the study group.Drug Costs: The amount that a health care institution or organization pays for its drugs. It is one component of the final price that is charged to the consumer (FEES, PHARMACEUTICAL or PRESCRIPTION FEES).Cost of Illness: The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, or QUALITY OF LIFE. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.War: Hostile conflict between organized groups of people.Gulf War: United Nations' action to intervene in conflict between the nation of Kuwait and occupying Iraqi forces, occurring from 1990 through 1991.Workflow: Description of pattern of recurrent functions or procedures frequently found in organizational processes, such as notification, decision, and action.Holography: The recording of images in three-dimensional form on a photographic film by exposing it to a laser beam reflected from the object under study.Dihydromorphine: A semisynthetic analgesic used in the study of narcotic receptors.Death Certificates: Official records of individual deaths including the cause of death certified by a physician, and any other required identifying information.Telemedicine: Delivery of health services via remote telecommunications.

Evaluating cost-effectiveness of diagnostic equipment: the brain scanner case. (1/8073)

An approach to evaluating the cost-effectiveness of high-technology diagnostic equipment has been devised, using the introduction of computerised axial tomography (CAT) as a model. With the advent of CAT scanning, angiography and air encephalography have a reduced, though important, role in investigating intracranial disease, and the efficient use of conventional equipment requires the centralisation of neuroradiological services, which would result in major cash savings. In contrast, the pattern of demand for CAT scanning, in addition to the acknowledged clinical efficiency of the scanner and its unique role in the head-injured patient, ephasies the need for improved access to scanners. In the interest of the patients the pattern of service must change.  (+info)

The use of targets to improve the performance of health care providers: a discussion of government policy. (2/8073)

The aim of this discussion paper is to examine the advantages and drawbacks of employing targets, or performance indicators, to improve the performance of those delivering health care services. The paper is based on an examination of two target-setting policies initiated by Government: the 1992 Health of the Nation strategy and the 1990 General Practitioners' Contract. It is argued that the introduction of both the General Practitioners' Contract and the Health of the Nation have indeed been accompanied by improvements in performance, however, there are a number of problems with targets. They tend to focus on those things that are most easily measured, and they may foster complacency on the part of providers who have already achieved upper target limits, and defensiveness on the part of those performing badly. National targets may skew local priorities; they may also be unrealistic and unattainable for particular, less privileged population groups. They may serve to widen inequalities in health, and can exacerbate the 'inverse care law' by encouraging providers to direct their efforts at the more advantaged sections of society, where such efforts are more likely to pay off in terms of overall improvements in the target level achieved. Finally, the achievement of some targets will not necessarily result in better health outcomes. The paper concludes that a target-setting approach to improving the quality of care must be based on the use of appropriate indicators, and must take account of differences between more and less advantaged sections of society.  (+info)

Economic consequences of the progression of rheumatoid arthritis in Sweden. (3/8073)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a simulation model for analysis of the cost-effectiveness of treatments that affect the progression of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: The Markov model was developed on the basis of a Swedish cohort of 116 patients with early RA who were followed up for 5 years. The majority of patients had American College of Rheumatology (ACR) functional class II disease, and Markov states indicating disease severity were defined based on Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) scores. Costs were calculated from data on resource utilization and patients' work capacity. Utilities (preference weights for health states) were assessed using the EQ-5D (EuroQol) questionnaire. Hypothetical treatment interventions were simulated to illustrate the model. RESULTS: The cohort distribution among the 6 Markov states clearly showed the progression of the disease over 5 years of followup. Costs increased with increasing severity of the Markov states, and total costs over 5 years were higher for patients who were in more severe Markov states at diagnosis. Utilities correlated well with the Markov states, and the EQ-5D was able to discriminate between patients with different HAQ scores within ACR functional class II. CONCLUSION: The Markov model was able to assess disease progression and costs in RA. The model can therefore be a useful tool in calculating the cost-effectiveness of different interventions aimed at changing the progression of the disease.  (+info)

Use of out-of-plan services by Medicare members of HIP. (4/8073)

Use of out-of-plan services in 1972 by Medicare members of the Health Insurance Plan of Greater New York (HIP) is examined in terms of the demographic and enrollment characteristics of out-of-plan users, types of services received outside the plan, and the relationship of out-of-plan to in-plan use. Users of services outside the plan tended to be more seriously ill and more frequently hospitalized than those receiving all of their services within the plan. The costs to the SSA of providing medical care to HIP enrollees are compared with analogous costs for non-HIP beneficiaries, and the implications for the organization and financing of health services for the aged are discussed.  (+info)

Should prophylaxis for Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia in solid organ transplant recipients ever be discontinued? (5/8073)

Solid organ transplant recipients are at risk for Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP), but the risk of PCP beyond 1 year is poorly defined. We identified 25 cases of PCP in 1,299 patients undergoing solid organ transplantation between 1987 and 1996 at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation (4.8 cases per 1,000 person transplant-years [PTY]). Ten (36%) of 28 PCP cases (transplantation was performed before 1987 in three cases) occurred > or = 1 year after transplantation, and no patient developed PCP while receiving prophylaxis for PCP. The incidence of PCP during the first year following transplantation was eight times higher than that during subsequent years. The highest rate occurred among lung transplant recipients (22 cases per 1,000 PTY), for whom the incidence did not decline beyond the first year of transplantation. We conclude that the incidence of PCP is highest during the first year after transplantation and differs by type of solid organ transplant. Extending the duration of PCP prophylaxis beyond 1 year may be warranted for lung transplant recipients.  (+info)

The cost effectiveness of strategies for the treatment of intestinal parasites in immigrants. (6/8073)

BACKGROUND: Currently, more than 600,000 immigrants enter the United States each year from countries where intestinal parasites are endemic. At entry persons with parasitic infections may be asymptomatic, and stool examinations are not a sensitive method of screening for parasitosis. Albendazole is a new, broad-spectrum antiparasitic drug, which was approved recently by the Food and Drug Administration. International trials have shown albendazole to be safe and effective in eradicating many parasites. In the United States there is now disagreement about whether to screen all immigrants for parasites, treat all immigrants presumptively, or do nothing unless they have symptoms. METHODS: We compared the costs and benefits of no preventive intervention (watchful waiting) with those of universal screening or presumptive treatment with 400 mg of albendazole per day for five days. Those at risk were defined as immigrants to the United States from Asia, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean. Cost effectiveness was expressed both in terms of the cost of treatment per disability-adjusted life-year (DALY) averted (one DALY is defined as the loss of one year of healthy life to disease) and in terms of the cost per hospitalization averted. RESULTS: As compared with watchful waiting, presumptive treatment of all immigrants at risk for parasitosis would avert at least 870 DALYs, prevent at least 33 deaths and 374 hospitalizations, and save at least $4.2 million per year. As compared with watchful waiting, screening would cost $159,236 per DALY averted. CONCLUSIONS: Presumptive administration of albendazole to all immigrants at risk for parasitosis would save lives and money. Universal screening, with treatment of persons with positive stool examinations, would save lives but is less cost effective than presumptive treatment.  (+info)

The use of atypical antipsychotics in the management of schizophrenia. (7/8073)

Long-term drug treatment of schizophrenia with conventional antipsychotics has limitations: an estimated quarter to one third of patients are treatment-resistant; conventional antipsychotics have only a modest impact upon negative symptoms (poverty of thought, social withdrawal and loss of affect); and adverse effects, particularly extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS). Newer, so-called atypical, antipsychotics such as olanzapine, risperidone, sertindole and clozapine (an old drug which was re-introduced in 1990) are claimed to address these limitations. Atypical agents are, at a minimum, at least as effective as conventional drugs such as haloperidol. They also cause substantially fewer extrapyramidal symptoms. However, some other adverse effects are more common than with conventional drugs. For example, clozapine carries a significant risk of serious blood disorders, for which special monitoring is mandatory; it also causes troublesome drowsiness and increased salivation more often than conventional agents. Some atypical agents cause more weight gain or QT prolongation than older agents. The choice of therapy is, therefore, not straightforward. At present, atypical agents represent an advance for patients with severe or intolerable EPS. Most published evidence exists to support the use of clozapine, which has also been shown to be effective in schizophrenia refractory to conventional agents. However, the need for compliance with blood count monitoring and its sedative properties make careful patient selection important. The extent of any additional direct benefit offered by atypical agents on negative symptoms is not yet clear. The lack of a depot formulation for atypical drugs may pose a significant practical problem. To date, only two double-blind studies in which atypical agents were compared directly have been published. Neither provides compelling evidence for the choice of one agent over another. Atypical agents are many times more expensive than conventional drugs. Although drug treatment constitutes only a small proportion of the costs of managing schizophrenia, the additional annual cost of the use of atypical agents in, say, a quarter of the likely U.K. schizophrenic population would be about 56 M pound sterling. There is only limited evidence of cost-effectiveness. Atypical antipsychotics are not currently licensed for other conditions where conventional antipsychotics are commonly used, such as behaviour disturbance or dementia in the elderly. Their dose, and place in treatment in such cases have yet to be determined.  (+info)

The reach and effectiveness of a national mass media-led smoking cessation campaign in The Netherlands. (8/8073)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the reach, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness of a mass media-led smoking cessation campaign including television shows, a television clinic, a quit line, local group programs, and a comprehensive publicity campaign. METHODS: A random sample of baseline smokers (n = 1338) was interviewed before and after the campaign and at a 10-month follow-up. A nonpretested control group (n = 508) of baseline smokers was incorporated to control for test effects. RESULTS: Most smokers were aware of the campaign, although active participation rates were low. Dose-response relations between exposure and quitting were found. The follow-up point prevalence abstinence rate attributable to the campaign was estimated to be 4.5% after control for test effects and secular trends. The cost per long-term quitter was about $12. CONCLUSIONS: In spite of a massive rise in tobacco promotion expenditures prior to the campaign and the absence of governmental control over the media, the campaign under study may have increased normal cessation rates substantially.  (+info)

What are the global trends for cost-benefit analysis, and how is this policy tool affecting environmental regulations? During todays OnPoint, Michael Livermore, executive director of the Institute for Policy Integrity and co-editor of the new book "The Globalization of Cost-Benefit Analysis in Environmental Policy," discusses the growing global use of cost-benefit analysis and its impact on environmental policy. He explains why he believes cost-benefit analysis is effective and highlights a recent case, relating to EPAs mercury rule, where cost-benefit analysis was called into question.. ...
The most efficient way to complete a cost benefit analysis is to refer to and implement a cost benefit analysis worksheet, which will ensure that you dont miss any necessary steps. Be as thorough as possible, and dont leave anything out. Every little bit counts, even though it may not seem like it when you are itemizing.. Also, consider non-monetary costs and benefits, including impacts on the community, the environment, your reputation, team morale, product quality and more. Although you may not be able to adequately assign a monetary value to these factors, they may have an effect on your business over time.. Keep in mind that these numbers must be as accurate as possible. While you may have to estimate some figures, do everything in your power to narrow them down to an accurate prediction of your costs and losses. A cost benefit analysis can be very beneficial, but if the numbers are incorrect, it could be a very costly mistake. If you are still on the fence, consider the pros and cons of ...

Peggy B. Musgrave 1 Introduction This chapter examines the proposition that the choice of financing public projects significantly affects the outcome of their cost-benefit evaluations. Both tax and loan finance are considered. For theoretical discussion of the essential components of cost-benefit analysis such as the appropriate discount rate, shadow pricing, the opportunity cost of real inputs and the estimation of real benefits, the reader is referred to other chapters in this volume and to Layard (1972), Drèze and Stern (1987), Layard and Glaister (1994), and Brent (2007). The theoretical framework for cost-benefit analysis has developed through many writings that usually did not explicitly include the costs and benefits of the financial flows associated with the project but tended to concentrate on the real benefits and opportunity costs of the resource inputs. Attention was focused on the choice of discount rate to allow for ancillary welfare effects often in a second-best world.1 ...

Heres a simple rule that could work. Submitted Regulatory Impact Statements would be required to include a cost-benefit analysis for any rules with substantial effect. That cost-benefit analysis must be vetted by Treasury, or by a new Fiscal Council, with enough of the workings provided by the Ministry or the consultants to allow for replication and sensitivity tests. Treasury is working up new guidelines for cost-benefit assessment; that would be the benchmark. If the cost-benefit analysis fails to pass muster, its sent back to the Ministry. And consultancies that produce cost-benefit assessments that fail to meet the standard more than, say, one time for every ten reports produced, are put on a naughty sheet barring Ministries, government agencies, SOEs, local governments, regional governments, or any other part of the government Ive missed here, from engaging their services for a few years ...

Technology Liberation Front. Youd think it would be harder for government to justify regulating the Internet than the offline world, right? Wrong-sadly. And Congress just missed a chance to fix that problem.. For decades, regulators have been required to issue a cost-benefit analysis when issuing new regulations. Some agencies are specifically required to do so by statute, but for most agencies, the requirement comes from executive orders issued by each new President-varying somewhat but each continuing the general principle that regulators bear the burden of showing that each regulations benefits outweigh its costs.. But the FCC, FTC and many other regulatory agencies arent required to do cost-benefit analysis at all. Because these are "independent agencies"-creatures of Congress rather than part of the Executive Branch (like the Department of Justice)-only Congress can impose cost-benefit analysis on agencies. A bipartisan bill, the Independent Agency Regulatory Analysis Act (S. 3486), ...
The entire FASB process is one big cost-benefit analysis, said FASB Chair Leslie Seidman in addressing the intense focus being placed on the cost-benefit analysis conducted by regulators and standard setters. In remarks at the Compliance Week Annual Conference, Chairman Seidman said cost-benefit analysis is not a discrete exercise that FASB staff undertake at the end of the process. Rather, every step in FASBs due process is an effort to gather information about the benefits of a potential change in accounting standards and identify the most faithful way to present information about a transaction or economic condition so that users of financial statements can make well-informed decisions. On a separate topic, the Chair said FASB is developing a disclosure framework to improve the quality of the information being disclosed and make financial statements more understandable ...

The US federal government has taken numerous actions to require cost / benefit analyses, or cost effectiveness analyses, regarding federal rulemaking activities. The intent of these actions is to assure that the rulemaking activities provide real benefits at acceptable costs. However, this intent is violated when the regulatory agencies analyze only the costs, or only the benefits, of proposed actions.. One example of this violation of intent is the federal effort to establish the "Social Cost of Carbon", specifically the supposed costs of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations on society. This effort has totally ignored the social benefits of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, despite the well documented effects of enhanced carbon dioxide concentrations on the rate and extent of growth of the field crops used to produce food for people and animals. This effort has also ignored the greening of the globe, largely resulting from increased atmospheric carbon dioxide ...

Which policies should police departments adopt? On February 9 and 10, the Policing Project and the Police Foundation convened over twenty experts on policing practices and quantitative methods to explore one possible answer to this question: those policies whose benefits outweigh their costs. Making their way through the blizzard that stormed New York at the conference start, participants gathered at New York University School of Law to discuss the importance and challenges of applying cost-benefit analysis to policing. Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) enables decision-makers to compare various policies using a common denominator and determine what is worthwhile.

The Policing Project is pleased to announce it has received a generous grant from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation for a two-year initiative to improve the application of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) to policing. This grant provides funding for efforts to advance the use of CBA in evaluating policing practices, and to prepare practitioner-friendly tools enabling law enforcement agencies and their communities to use CBA in their decision-making processes.. This grant comes at an opportune moment. The United States currently spends over $100 billion annually on law enforcement. Yet, we have remarkably little clear evidence of which policing techniques are effective and which are not. In addition, as advances occur, police departments nationwide must decide whether to spend millions more dollars on technologies such as facial recognition, license plate readers, drones and body-worn cameras.. Cost-benefit analysis is a procedure that attempts to identify and weigh the full range of positive and ...

In both New Zealand and Australia there have been many calls for the publishing of an accurate cost/benefit analysis to justify the taxpayer investment in the UFB and NBN networks. If you read the New Zealand Herald, you may have seen an excellent article by Chris Barton a couple of days ago. Chris comments are equally applicable to both countries critics, and Chris has allowed me to reproduce his very logical piece, mainly for my overseas readers. The piece is subtitled

Acute chest pain is responsible for approximately 700,000 patient attendances per year at emergency departments in England and Wales. A single centre study of selected patients suggested that chest pain unit (CPU) care could be less costly and more effective than routine care for these patients, although a more recent multi-centre study cast doubt on the generalisability of these findings. Our economic evaluation involved modelling data from the ESCAPE multi-centre trial along with data from other sources to estimate the comparative costs and effects of CPU versus routine care. Cost effectiveness ratios (cost per QALY) were generated from our model. We found that CPU compared to routine care resulted in a non-significant increase in effectiveness of 0.0075 QALYs per patient and a non-significant cost decrease of £32 per patient and thus a negative incremental cost effectiveness ratio. If we are willing to pay £20,000 for an additional QALY then there is a 70% probability that CPU care will be
For the last 15 years, maintenance budgets for transportation agencies have largely gone down or remained flat. As a result, every new purchase has to have a cost-benefit analysis to justify its dollar value. The current situation requires an effective method for determining the cost-benefit of incorporating new products and methods into agency operations.. ...
Finally, a Markov model was conducted from the systematic review to estimate the lifetime costs and quality adjusted life year (QALYs) associated with the use of PETx as against surgery in a hypothetical cohort of older women with primary breast cancer and ER-positive status. The analysis took the UK NHS perspective with a lifetime horizon. Transition probabilities were estimated using parametric survival models derived from the longitudinal database. Resource use and costs were assessed in British pounds of the year 2014 using the longitudinal database. Utilities were derived from literature, including Prescott et al. (2007) (1), Fallowfield et al. (1994), and Peasgood et al. (2010)(2). Both costs and outcomes were discounted by 3.5% annually. A subgroup analysis was conducted for patients with higher oestrogen receptor content (H-score ,250 out of 300). PSA was conducted and aggregated results were presented in cost-effectiveness plane and cost-effectiveness acceptability curve. Sensitivity ...

Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) gives rise to a whole range of philosophical issues. The most discussed among these is the status of economic values that are assigned to assets conceived as incommensurable with money, such as a human life or the continued existence of an animal species. CBA also involves other contentious assumptions, for instance that a disadvantage affecting one person can be fully compensated for by an advantage affecting some other person. Another controversial issue is whether a CBA should cover all aspects in a decision or rather leave out certain issues (such as justice) so that they can instead be treated separately.. ...
Cost-benefit analysis is the only method of economic evaluation which can effectively indicate whether a health care treatment or intervention is worthwhile. This book attempts to build a bridge between cost-benefit analysis, as developed by economists, and the health care evaluation literature which relies on other evaluation approaches such as cost-minimization, cost-effectiveness analysis and cost-utility analysis ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Equity considerations may justify the use of weight factors when estimating the costs of climate change. This paper reviews different weight factors that have been used in the climate economics literature. Based on a simple model, it is shown that although the different weight factors imply substantially different cost-damage estimates, they actually yield the same optimal emission reductions. This paradox is explained by the fact that some of the approaches require that also the abatement costs are weighted - and this offsets the effect of the diverging cost-damage estimates. The model is then used to analyse the importance weighting may have on the overall cost-benefit analysis. At present, when most of the global emissions of (fossil) CO2 originate from the industrialised countries, the global optimal emissions are considerably lower if costs are weighted. However, the more the emissions in developing countries grow, the less important becomes the introduction of
Smart meters not only show how much electricity is being consumed, but also provide information about the time of use, and make it possible to securely transmit information about energy consumption. They thus put in place the preconditions for a more efficient use of energy and help to create transparency for consumers.. The EUs member states are basically expected to equip 80 % of all households with smart electricity meter systems by 2022, in line with rules contained in the third single market package and recommendations by the European Commission. Alternatively, member states can undertake a cost-benefit analysis and use this to launch their own strategy.. In the light of this, the Economics Ministry commissioned a study from Ernst & Young which has now concluded that the aforementioned EU scenario is not to be recommended for Germany.. State Secretary Kapferer: The findings show that we in Germany need to design our roll-out of smart metering systems in a targeted fashion which meets the ...

To ensure that the resources of the health care sector are used effectively, new technologies need to be evaluated before implementation to examine if they generate health outcomes at an acceptable cost. This information can be collected by performing health economic evaluations in which the costs and health outcomes of different technologies are compared. To estimate the effect on health care budgets, there is also a need for information about the prevalence of the specific disease. Health outcomes in health economic evaluations are often measured in quality-adjusted life years (QALYs), which are calculated by multiplying the remaining life years after an intervention by a weight representing the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) during those years.. This thesis aims to provide deeper knowledge of the health economic aspects of diabetic retinopathy (DR), an eye complication that affects patients with diabetes and may in the worst case lead to blindness. The focus is on three empirical and ...
This course helps the energy industry managers and executives to better use the tool commonly referred to as "cost-benefit analysis" or CBA. As a formal assessment of an organizations project costs and benefits, CBA attempts to measure and compare the efficiency of project options. This type of analysis has become standard practice in project analysis and program evaluation-particularly in cases where there are new strategic or capital investments. The goal of the course is to provide the participants with the conceptual foundations and practical skills they will need to be thoughtful consumers and producers of CBA.. The class will draw on qualitative, quantitative, and analytic skills. As a practical matter, a basic familiarity with the energy industry, microeconomic theory, statistics, and algebra is assumed.. ...

Similar reasoning applies to other categories of information at issue. Litigation hazards may include types of illegal tax shelters the IRS does not have the resources to pursue, situations which make witnesses unsympathetic or hard to find, or practical complications for investigating certain types of schemes. A potential evader who is made aware of the IRSs perceived litigation hazards will know how to best structure an evasion so as to avoid the maximum enforcement efforts of the IRS. Knowing how to evade in a way the IRS deems more difficult to detect or prosecute also enters into the cost-benefit analysis of a potential evader; a person with such knowledge may feel emboldened because she believes she can execute a scheme the IRS will be loathe to prosecute.Mayer Brown points out that Congress prohibited LILO transactions in 2004.

This research used ERG reports and clarification letters as sources of information to identify common issues and concerns with evidence submissions from manufacturers as part of the NICE STA process. It is worth emphasising that the ERGs made many positive comments about the submissions included in this study. The analysis of the ERG reports did, however, identify criticisms of the conduct of the systematic review within the MS as well as criticisms of the data being used, especially data employed in cost-effectiveness models. Major issues regarding poor reporting of processes used in the MS were also identified. The majority of clarification points related to economic data analysis and covered issues such as inconsistencies between the clinical and economic sections of the submission, queries regarding sources of data and their use in the economic analysis, questions about modelling decisions, data queries and requests for additional analysis. These issues covered both what evidence was ...

OBJECTIVES: Health technology assessment (HTA) agencies assessing the cost-effectiveness of healthcare technologies seek evidence from economic evaluations. As well as searching economic evaluation databases, researchers often search MEDLINE and EMBASE, using search filters whose current performance is unclear. We assessed the performance of search filters in identifying economic evaluations from MEDLINE and EMBASE. METHODS: A gold standard of economic evaluations was compiled from National Health Service Economic Evaluation Database (NHS EED) records for 2000, 2003, and 2006. Corresponding records were retrieved in MEDLINE and EMBASE. Search filters were identified from the InterTASC Information Specialists SubGroup Web site and from Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) Information Services. The sensitivity and precision of search filters in retrieving gold standard records from MEDLINE and EMBASE were tested. RESULTS: A total of 2,070 full economic evaluations were ...
AIM: To establish whether universal vaccination of infants with the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine is likely to be cost-effective from the perspective of the health care provider (NHS). METHOD: Two hypothetical cohorts--one vaccinated and one unvaccinated--were followed over their lifetime, and the expected net costs and benefits (measured in terms of life-years and quality adjusted life years (QALY) gained) were compared in the two cohorts. The impact of indirect effects of the vaccine, such as herd immunity and serotype replacement, were investigated and their relative importance was assessed by performing univariate sensitivity analysis and multivariate Monte Carlo simulations. RESULTS: Under base-case assumptions (no herd immunity and no serotype replacement) the programme is not expected to be cost-effective from the NHS perspective at the current price of the vaccine (assumed 30 pounds per dose, three-dose programme). A reduction of the cost of the vaccine to half of its current level ...

The cost benefit of a substance abuse treatment makes logical sense to me. The use of drugs or alcohol can be responsible for multiple health problems to include high blood pressure, which can lead to stroke, heart disease, kidney damage, etc. Women seeking medical care over man is really something that I was not surprised in. I know personally with my own husband, he works swing shift and it is hard for him to get off of work and make it to his MD appt. If he is on night shift, he has been known to over sleep and then he misses the appointment. The results indicated that younger patients experience greater declines in medical care cost following alcoholism treatment initiation. I feel this could be due to the fact that you have provided the intervention to the young person before a lot of damage has occurred to the body. Where as an older patient has a longer history of substance abuse and damage has occurred and it is usually not reversible. As we get older we have more medical problems ...

i) Cost-benefit analysis. BOEMRE states that the cost-benefit analysis for this rule was conducted using a scenario analysis. BOEMRE explains that the cost-benefit analysis considers a regulation designed to reduce the likelihood of a catastrophic oil spill, while the costs are the compliance costs of imposed regulation. BOEMRE notes that if another catastrophic oil spill is prevented, the benefits are the avoided costs associated with a catastrophic oil spill (e.g., reduction in expected natural resource damages owing to the reduction in likelihood of failure). Noting that the estimated costs of this rulemaking, as reflected in the compliance costs of the enumerated requirements of approximately $180 million per year, have a strong foundation and are based on surveys of public and industry sources, BOEMRE states that quantification of the benefits is uncertain. BOEMRE believes the benefits are represented by the avoided costs of a catastrophic spill, which are estimated under the stipulated ...
OBJECTIVES: A recent randomized study showed switch maintenance with pemetrexed after nonpemetrexed-containing first-line chemotherapy in patients with advanced nonsmall-cell lung cancer to prolong overall survival by 2.8 months. We examined the cost-effectiveness of pemetrexed in this indication, from the perspective of the Swiss health care system, and assessed the influence of the costs of best supportive care (BSC) on overall cost-effectiveness. METHODS: A Markov model was constructed based on the pemetrexed maintenance study, and the incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) of adding pemetrexed until disease progression was calculated as cost per quality-adjusted life-year gained. Uncertainties concerning the costs of BSC on the ICER were addressed. RESULTS: The base case ICER for maintenance therapy with pemetrexed plus BSC compared to BSC alone was €106,202 per quality-adjusted life-year gained. Varying the costs for BSC had a marked effect. Assuming a reduction of the costs for BSC ...
This thesis studies infinite games with perfect information, i.e.,dynamic games in which players move sequentially. Chapter 1 introduces the subject. In Chapter 2 we consider the class of two-player perfect informationgames with characteristic payoff functions. We define a new solutionconcept for these games. The approach is axiomatic. We prove thedeterminacy for a whole class of perfect information games. In Chapter 3 we introduce infinite perfect-information games with aninfinite number of players. We also define a corresponding notion ofdeterminacy for these games. An application to a simple overlappinggeneration model predicts monetary equilibrium as the only outcomeof the economy. In Chapter 4 we consider an effective version of determinacy forinfinite games with perfect information by combining determinacywith the notion of computability by a Turing machine. We give acharacterization of the determinacy for the class of closed games ...
Culling badgers is unlikely to be a cost-effective way of combating TB in cattle, according to latest research into controlling the disease.
Our baseline analysis suggested that a selective, 1-time hepatitis C screening program in Canada for individuals aged 25-64 years or 45-64 years would prevent at least 9 HCV-related deaths per 10 000 persons over the lifetime of the cohort and is likely to be cost-effective, at $34 359 to $44 034 per QALY gained. The conventional upper limit of applied cost-effectiveness thresholds50-52 varies among countries, from $50 000 to $120 000 per QALY. The results of multiple 1-way deterministic and probabilistic sensitivity analyses provided evidence that the screen-and-treat approach is likely to be cost-effective, taking into consideration the uncertainty of the models parameters.. Published studies from the US have reported incremental cost-effectiveness ratios ranging from Can$18 800 to Can$90 000 per QALY for birth cohort screening and treatment with peginterferon-ribavirin or peginterferon-ribavirin-based direct-acting antiviral therapy. For example, Rein and associates50 reported an incremental ...
Using actual chemotherapy recommendations in a Japanese setting, this study found that the use of the 21-gene assay resulted in an increase of 0.241 QALYs and increased lifetime costs of ¥153,565 per patient on average. The consequent cost per QALY gained was ¥636,752 ($6,368).. Previously, 21-gene assay recommendations were compared with St. Gallen guideline criteria in a societal cost-effectiveness analysis by Kondo et al. [23]. Guidelines have been used as surrogate decision impact parameters in cost-effectiveness studies of diagnostics early in their development or diffusion when use is fairly limited [29]. As clinical decision impact data becomes available, it is important to validate those analyses that used surrogate parameters, as has been done for the 21-gene assay in other settings [30, 31]. The study herein built upon previous work to provide the first available societal cost-effectiveness estimate in Japan, applying actual recommendations for chemotherapy from a tertiary referral ...
In order to get the most benefit out of limited resources, public health departments must examine the costs and benefits of their activities to determine the most cost-effective method to allocate these scarce resources. The use of economic analysis can inform and help clarify upon which decisions are to be made. (CDC, 1996). The resources used to produce most goods and services in society are efficiently allocated through markets. However, markets can fail to efficiently provide goods and services that largely benefit individuals other than the consumer. The types of goods and services that public health departments provide often fall into that category. Cost-benefit analysis is one type of economic decision-making tool used when market forces are not in control Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) places a dollar value on the costs and benefits of each outcome so they can be compared. This type of economic analysis can then be taken one step further. An incremental or marginal analysis can determine changes in
Background The focus of locally advanced (LA) and recurrent and/or metastatic (R/M) squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) therapy has recently shifted to the molecular level. Although the clinical effectiveness of novel therapeutics has been discussed extensively, the experience with cost-effectiveness analyses (CEAs) of targeted agents is limited. The objective of this study was to systematically review CEAs of molecular therapeutics in LA and R/M SCCHN.. Methods A systematic literature review was performed focusing on CEAs of molecularly targeted therapeutics in LA and R/M SCCHN using MEDLINE, EMBASE, NHS Economic Evaluation Database (NHS EED) and the Tufts CEA Registry. Studies were screened according to a priori eligibility criteria. Two independent reviewers appraised the studies using published criteria by Philips et al. to assess the quality and methodology of decision analytic models.. Results A total of four studies and eight CEAs met the inclusion criteria. All CEAs were ...
Farmers are part of a state guided control system to ensure the Irish brand is kept in the premium position among consumers world wide. The small farmer may be inefficient in terms of scale, but he/she is highly efficient in the area of quality, environment and animal welfare. There is not only legal control but emotional support by farmers in the overall effort to promote Irish food. Consumers regard the quality of the food they and their families eat in terms of animal welfare, strict control of medicines, nitrates, chemicals, husbandry and hygiene. Subsidies provide the vehicle to ensure and enforce standards. In reality, the subsidy comprises the only profit when costs are paid. Farming requires large spending of inputs which supports jobs in retailing, financial and state administration, Food exports provide vital revenue for society.

As business volumes and ranges of stocked products grow, the complexities associated with inventory management and logistics increase. The dependence upon the key role of the warehouse operation becomes even more significant. Companies are finding the need to implement a Warehouse Management Solution (WMS), integrated with their ERP/Supply Chain Execution system to meet the increasing demands of their major clients efficiently.. The implementation of the right solution can yield major cost savings, as well as increases in company profitability and ability to respond. In the past, advanced semi-automated technology within the warehouse was restricted to larger companies and professional supply chain businesses, due to the complexity and level of investment required. However, an understanding of real business benefits and cost advantages that can be derived, has led to a wide selection of operations, both large and small embracing WMS solutions.. The process of identifying the need and business ...

I read Security Metrics right after finishing Managing Cybersecurity Resources, a book by economists arguing that security decisions should be made using cost-benefit analysis. On the face of it, cost-benefit analysis makes perfect sense, especially given the authors analysis. However, Security Metrics author Andy Jaquith quickly demolishes that approach (confirming the problem I had with the MCR plan). While attacking the implementation (but not the idea) of Annual Loss Expectancy for security events, Jaquith writes on p 33 "[P]ractitioners of ALE suffer from a near-complete inability to reliably estimate probabilities [of occurrence] or losses." Bingo, game over for ALE and cost-benefit analysis. It turns out the reason security managers "herd" (as mentioned in MCR) is that they have no clue what else to do; they seek safety in numbers by emulating peers and then claim that as a defense when they are breached. ...
Based on detailed Dutch epidemiological data analyzed in an age-structured, discrete-time event, stochastic multi-cohort model, we conclude that targeted RV vaccination of high-risk infants is highly cost-effective and potentially cost-saving in the Netherlands. Cost-effectiveness estimates were most sensitive to RV mortality rates, but targeted RV vaccination remained cost-effective when mortality would be 90% lower than observed.. In our analysis, universal RV vaccination was not considered cost-effective from the healthcare provider perspective and would only become cost-effective when herd-immunity and caretaker QALY losses were included and if vaccine prices would be at most €60/child. These results are in line with results from other European cost-effectiveness analyses that have used comparable methodology and QALY loss estimates for RVGE. Universal RV vaccination was not considered cost-effective from the healthcare provider perspective in Belgium, England and Wales, France, the ...

The sale price of the fully-developed software is $200,000, and Michael estimates an annual growth of 25% for the next five years. Hence, the benefits range from $0 in year o to $488,281 in the year 5.. The costs of the software development include $75,200 upfront costs in year 0 and $29,000 ongoing costs for the next five years.. Based on the total benefits and costs per year, the net cash flow of the software ranges between -$75,200 in year 0 and $459,281 in the year 5.. Then, Michael assumes a discount rate of 11% to estimate the discounted net cash flow. Given a discount factor of 100% in year 0 to 45% in the year 5, Michael calculates the discounted net cash flow, which ranges between -$75,200 in year 0 and $206,677 in the year 5.. Hence, the net present value of this project, i.e. the sum of the discounted net cash flows each year is $848,502. Based on the discounted net cash flows, the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of the project is 213%.. Michael determines the project as profitable and ...

1. Analogous Estimating - This is a technique where we estimate the cost of the current project by applying our expert judgment on the actual costs from previous projects. This is a fast and cheap estimation technique but is not very accurate because the parameters considered while estimating the old project may or may not be applicable for our current project and so the estimates may not be accurate. This technique is typically used when resources to do the estimation are low and we are only looking for a high-level or ball-park kind of estimate ...
The only problem is that the design of most of the Underground makes it essentially impossible to provide step free access from Street to Platform at almost all of the deep line stations.

In this time of economic uncertainty, it is important for organizations, including those in public health, to show the value in their strategy. It is critical that health outcomes be expressed in a way that makes a positive business case for promising, evidence-based public health interventions. Several methods for economic evaluation have been used in other social sciences including health care, but public health systems interventions present unique challenges. System changes such as partnerships, quality improvement initiatives and delivery methods are not obvious frameworks for cost analysis. This research will explore common methods for financially quantifying value in public health system, and these methods will be applied to real-world examples, including a quality improvement intervention, an academic-public health partnership and a new model of care delivery for high blood pressure patients. Cost effective analysis, cost utility analysis, and cost benefit analysis, including return on ...

Objective This study aims to measure the cost-effectiveness of ezetimibe in addition simvastatin (E/S) AZD8330 versus atorvastatin or simvastatin monotherapy as second-line treatment of major hypercholesterolaemia through the Dutch healthcare perspective. 10?mg was put into 40 simvastatin?mg (E10/S40). The main element effectiveness insight measure was modification altogether cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein percentage from the EASEGO research. In conformity with released studies linking decreased lipid amounts to reduced threat of cardiovascular occasions todays model assumed a lipid lower with ezetimibe may be a signal for reduced risk of cardiovascular events. Model parameters were derived from published literature. Sensitivity analyses were performed for the key parameters. Results In the EASEGO scenario incremental cost-effectiveness ratio for E10/S20 was €3497/quality-adjusted life-years (QALY) vs atorvastatin 20?mg and €26 417 vs simvastatin 40?mg. In the Dutch guidelines ...
Saying that economic benefit-cost analysis is the economists applied tool for assessing the efficiency of alternative public choices and policies doesnt really tell us very much which is specific. We still need to know what the economist means by "efficiency." A very general idea is that an efficient choice for government is one that means people in the community in general will be better off as a result. This means, then when an environmental economist makes a benefit calculation, the idea is to make an estimate in dollar terms of how much better off people in the community will be. Similarly, the cost calculation is supposed to be an estimate of how much worse off people in the community will be. In general, the people who are better off, given a choice by government, will not be the same people who are worse off because of governments choice. Economists want to recommend only government actions which are expected to have benefits greater than costs (both terms as specifically defined by ...

1980), was relevant to the issues in the present cases. We disagree. OSHA amended its Cancer Policy to "carry out the Courts interpretation of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 that consideration must be given to the significance of the risk in the issuance of a carcinogen standard and that OSHA must consider all relevant evidence in making these determinations." 46 Fed. Reg. 4889, col. 3 (1981). Previously, although lacking such evidence as dose-response data, the Secretary presumed that no safe exposure level existed for carcinogenic substances. Industrial Union Dept. v. American Petroleum Institute, supra, at 620, 624-625, 635-636, nn. 39 and 40 (plurality opinion).

Should manufacturers be held to a higher standard than those which have been proven to be ineffective?. The following paper is an interesting read related to that topic. . .. "The Case for a Strong Regulatory Compliance Defense". Richard C. Ausness, University of Kentucky, College of Law, 1996, Law Faculty Publications. Here are some excerpts:. "The regulatory compliance defense is another concept that can limit tort liability. In its strong version, the regulatory compliance defense provides that a product is not defective if it meets applicable regulatory standards or requirements. However, very few jurisdictions recognize regulatory compliance as a complete defense to tort liability. Instead, most courts allow juries to take compliance with regulatory standards into account, but steadfastly refuse to treat federal safety standards as anything more than minimum standards. 12″ [p. 1212].

To investigate the incremental cost effectiveness of two dose human papillomavirus vaccination and of additionally giving a third dose. Cost effectiveness study based on a transmission dynamic model of human papillomavirus vaccination. Two dose schedules for bivalent or quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccines were assumed to provide 10, 20, or 30 years vaccine type protection and cross protection or lifelong vaccine type protection without cross protection. Three dose schedules were assumed to give lifelong vaccine type and cross protection. United Kingdom. Males and females aged 12-74 years. No, two, or three doses of human papillomavirus vaccine given routinely to 12 year old girls, with an initial catch-up campaign to 18 years. Costs (from the healthcare providers perspective), health related utilities, and incremental cost effectiveness ratios. Giving at least two doses of vaccine seems to be highly cost effective across the entire range of scenarios considered at the quadrivalent ...
Chronic neck pain is a prevalent and disabling condition among older adults. Despite the large burden of neck pain, little is known regarding the cost-effectiveness of commonly used treatments. This study aimed to estimate the cost-effectiveness of home exercise and advice (HEA), spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) plus HEA, and supervised rehabilitative exercise (SRE) plus HEA.. Cost-effectiveness analysis conducted alongside a randomized clinical trial (RCT) was performed, and total of 241 older adults (≥65 years) with chronic mechanical neck pain comprised the patient sample.. The outcome measures were direct and indirect costs, neck pain, neck disability, SF-6D-derived quality-adjusted life years (QALYs), and incremental cost-effectiveness ratios (ICERs) over a 1-year time horizon. Cost-effectivenesswas a secondary aim of the RCT.. Total costs for SMT+HEA were 5% lower than HEA and 47% lower than SRE+HEA. SMT+HEA also resulted in a greater reduction of neck pain over the year relative to HEA ...
Stroke imposes significant burdens on health services and society, and as such there is a growing need to assess the cost-effectiveness of stroke treatment to ensure maximum benefit is derived from limited resources. This study compared the cost-effectiveness of treating post-stroke upper limb spasticity with botulinum toxin type A plus an upper limb therapy programme against the therapy programme alone. Data on resource use and health outcomes were prospectively collected for 333 patients with post-stroke upper limb spasticity taking part in a randomized trial and combined to estimate the incremental cost per quality adjusted life year (QALY) gained of botulinum toxin type A plus therapy relative to therapy alone. The base case incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) of botulinum toxin type A plus therapy was £93,500 per QALY gained. The probability of botulinum toxin type A plus therapy being cost-effective at the England and Wales cost-effectiveness threshold value of £20,000 per QALY was 0.36.

As the generation of industrial wastes increases, waste treatment is steadily becoming a serious economic and environmental issue. Existing waste has mainly been treated by landfilling after incineration. A shortage of landfill sites necessitates waste management alternatives other than traditional incineration and landfill. This paper focuses on a cost-benefit analysis that evaluates the economic and environmental performances of five treatment strategies for flammable industrial wastes: incineration, refuse plastic fuel (RPF) boiler, RPF cement furnace, cement furnace after shredding of wastes, and paper incineration after shredding of wastes. For such purposes, our model considered the entire process of each waste treatment, which involves collection, transportation, treatment, recovery, and the disposal of flammable industrial wastes that pose risks to their surroundings. Case studies of each treatment processes are reviewed, and a cost-benefit analysis is performed to evaluate and identify the
BACKGROUND: The OCTANE trial reports superior outcomes of lopinavir/ritonavir vs. nevirapine-based antiretroviral therapy (ART) among women previously exposed to single-dose nevirapine to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission. However, lopinavir/ritonavir is 12 times costlier than nevirapine.. METHODS: We used a computer model, with OCTANE and local data, to simulate HIV-infected, single-dose nevirapine-exposed women in South Africa. Outcomes of three alternative ART sequences were projected: no ART (for comparison), first-line nevirapine, and first-line lopinavir/ritonavir. OCTANE data included mean age (31 years) and CD4 cell count (135/μl); median time since single-dose nevirapine (17 months); and 24-week viral suppression efficacy for first-line ART (nevirapine: 85%, lopinavir/ritonavir: 97%). Outcomes included life expectancy, per-person costs (2008 US$), and incremental cost-effectiveness ratios.. RESULTS: With no ART, projected life expectancy was 1.6 years and per-person cost was ...
Background. World Health Organization guidelines for antiretroviral treatment (ART) in resource-limited settings recommend either stavudine or tenofovir as part of initial therapy. We evaluated the clinical outcomes and cost-effectiveness of first-line ART using tenofovir in India, compared with current practice using stavudine or zidovudine.. Methods. We used a state-transition model of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease to examine strategies using different nucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitors, combined with lamivudine and nevirapine, compared with no ART: (1) stavudine, (2) stavudine with substitution by zidovudine after 6 months, (3) zidovudine, and (4) tenofovir. Data were from the Y. R. Gaitonde Centre for AIDS Research and Education in Chennai, India, and published studies.. Results. Discounted mean per person survival was 36.9 months (40.2 months undiscounted) with no ART, 115.5 months (145.3) with stavudine-containing ART, 115.7 months (145.6) with stavudine and 6-month ...
