There are two distinct phases in identifying and quantifying consequences: a broad and systematic review of relevant consequences of the decision being evaluated and identification of data sources and measurement approaches for quantifying them. Cost-effectiveness analyses should identify all significant consequences related to health (survival and/or health status) and resource use in the healthcare sector, as well as consequences in other sectors. Consequences may be distinguished along various dimensions, including the sector in which they occur; groups with different degrees of proximity to the intervention (target population versus other affected groups); and different time points. The Impact Inventory provides a framework for listing all consequences of an intervention, within and outside the healthcare sector, and encouraging explicit discussion of omitted elements and their likely effect on the conclusions of an analysis.
