This chapter discusses the potential of cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) in health and medicine and the ways in which the technique has been applied. Since the original Panel’s work, CEA has become a more common feature on the healthcare landscape. Researchers have investigated the cost-effectiveness of a wide range of interventions in diverse applications. In the United States and abroad, public and private health organizations have funded, conducted, and used CEAs, though the technique has also encountered resistance. Decision makers involved in resource allocation decisions have given the greatest weight and deepest consideration to the clinical evidence underlying interventions. They have generally viewed CEA as one input, alongside other considerations, including ethical, legal, and political concerns.

Keywords:   Cost-effectiveness analysis, opportunity costs, decision makers, comparator, reference case, societal perspective, healthcare sector perspective, league table, cost-effectiveness thresholds
