European Symposium on Pediatric Cochlear Implantation. Hannover, DEU, 1996/06/06.
To summarizes the results of cost-utility analyses of pediatric cochlear implantation (Cl) in the United Kingdom.
Analysis is based on the direct costs of medical and rehabilitative management and also on emerging evidence that implantation leads to a shift in educational placements in favor of mainstreaming with support.
The resulting cost-utility ratio falls on the margin of the range considered acceptable within the British health-care system.
The analysis also suggests that pediatric Cl could be acceptably cost-effective.
The next step should be to measure the costs of alternative educational settings directly.
