Cost–Benefit Analysis and Health Care Evaluations

Cost–Benefit Analysis and Health Care Evaluations

Robert J. Brent

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.
