Foundations of cost-effectiveness analysis for health and medical practices.
Limits on health-care resources mandate that resource-allocation decisions be guided by considerations of cost in relation to expected benefits. In cost-effectiveness analysis, the ratio of net…
QALYs: the basics.
The aim of this article is to review the concept of the qualityadjusted life-year (QALY), a widely used measure of health improvement that is used to guide health-care resource allocation decisions and address variations on the conventional QALY.
