MedTech West seminar – Health care economics for medical technologies

Economic evaluation in health care is a thriving international activity that is increasingly used to allocate scarce healthcare resources, and within which applied and methodological research and publication are flourishing. Health economic evaluations are used to inform decisions of various health care systems about which health care interventions, pharmaceutical or medical technology to fund from available resources. The economic evaluation has evolved as a key element to support decisions within health care fund allocation.

Participants in this seminar will get a comprehensive overview of the specifics of health economics, and practical examples of integration of health economics for medical technologies.
