Cost-Effectiveness Analysis (HSMP 6609)

markov_tree.PNGFor those registered in the class, all materials will be available on Canvas. This class is an introduction to economic evaluations of health care interventions or technology. Economic evaluation compares the cost and consequences of interventions. We'll cover different forms of economic evaluations --cost analysis, cost effectiveness, cost utility, and cost benefit-- as well as different methods such as decision analysis, Markov models, and different ways of conducting sensitivity analyses. We will review economics concepts that are necessary to understand the foundation of economic evaluations. 

Note: New syllabus and updates coming in Spring 2017 to reflect the new recommendations of the panel on cost effectiveness.
