Cost-effectiveness of internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy for body dysmorphic disorder: results from a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
The efficacy and cost-effectiveness of BDD-NET should be directly compared to face-to-face cognitive behaviour therapy, compared to online supportive psychotherapy.
Cost-Effectiveness of Therapist-Guided Internet-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Stress-Related Disorders: Secondary Analysis of a Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
The results suggest that ICBT is a cost-effective treatment for patients suffering from AD or ED, and compared with no treatment, ICBT for these patients yields large effects at no or minimal societal net costs.
Cost Effectiveness of Internet-Delivered Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Patients with Severe Health Anxiety: A Randomised Controlled Trial
TLDR
iACT for severe health anxiety may be cost effective, as evidenced by significant differences in effect, although no significant differences were detected in healthcare costs between groups.
Clinical and economic outcomes of remotely delivered cognitive behaviour therapy versus treatment as usual for repeat unscheduled care users with severe health anxiety: a multicentre randomised controlled trial
TLDR
RCBT may be an easy-to-implement intervention to improve clinical outcome and save costs in one group of repeat users of unscheduled care with severe health anxiety who have previously been difficult to engage in psychological treatment.
Cognitive behavior therapy for health anxiety: systematic review and meta-analysis of clinical efficacy and health economic outcomes
TLDR
CBT for health anxiety is probably cost-effective, but with limited effect on the quality of life, and ICBT had effects comparable to face-to-face CBT.
Using the Internet to Provide Treatment for Health Anxiety
Digital interventions in mental health: evidence syntheses and economic modelling.
TLDR
The overall picture suggests that digital interventions are likely to be cost-effective, compared with no intervention and non-therapeutic controls, whereas the value of digital interventions compared with face-to-face therapy or printed manuals is unclear.
Systematic Review and Critique of Methods for Economic Evaluation of Digital Mental Health Interventions
TLDR
This study represents the first attempt to understand the appropriateness of the methodologies used to evaluate the value for money of DMHIs, helping work towards consensus and methods’ harmonisation on these complex interventions.

Cost-effectiveness and long-term effectiveness of Internet-based cognitive behaviour therapy for severe health anxiety
TLDR
Investigating the cost-effectiveness and 1-year treatment effects of ICBT for severe health anxiety found it to be a cost-effective treatment that can produce substantial and enduring effects.
Internet-delivered exposure-based cognitive–behavioural therapy and behavioural stress management for severe health anxiety: randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Internet-delivered exposure-based CBT led to a significantly greater improvement on the Health Anxiety Inventory compared with BSM, however, both treatment groups made large improvements on the HAI.
Internet-based cognitive-behavioural therapy for severe health anxiety: randomised controlled trial.
TLDR
Internet-based CBT is an efficacious treatment for hypochondriasis that has the potential to increase accessibility and availability of CBT for hypochodriasis.
Cost effectiveness of internet-based cognitive behaviour therapy and behavioural stress management for severe health anxiety
TLDR
Investigating the cost effectiveness of ICBT compared with internet-delivered behavioural stress management for adults with severe health anxiety defined as DSM-IV hypochondriasis found it to be a cost-effective treatment and treatment costs are offset by societal net cost reductions in a short time.
Exposure-based cognitive–behavioural therapy via the internet and as bibliotherapy for somatic symptom disorder and illness anxiety disorder: randomised controlled trial
TLDR
This is the first study showing that these new DSM-5 disorders can be effectively treated, and ICBT, U-ICBT and bibliotherapy can be highly effective in the treatment of SSD and IAD.
Therapist-supported Internet cognitive behavioural therapy for anxiety disorders in adults.
TLDR
The effects of therapist-supported Internet CBT on remission of anxiety disorder diagnosis and reduction of anxiety symptoms in adults as compared to waiting list control, unguided CBT, or face-to-face CBT were assessed and effects of treatment on quality of life and patient satisfaction with the intervention were assessed.
Cognitive behavior therapy via the Internet: a systematic review of applications, clinical efficacy and cost–effectiveness
TLDR
Internet-based cognitive behavior therapy can only be regarded as a well-established treatment for depression, panic disorder and social phobia, and it seems that ICBT is as effective as conventional CBT for respective clinical disorder, that is, if conventionalCBT works then ICBT works.
Cost-effectiveness of preventing depression in primary care patients
TLDR
Over 1 year adjunctive minimal contact psychotherapy improved outcomes and generated lower costs, and this intervention is therefore superior to usual care alone in terms of cost-effectiveness.
