    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Symposium "Pharmacoeconomic Factors Related to the Treatment of Schizophrenia". Chicago, IL, USA, 1998/04/08.

    The assignment of costs in a cost-effectiveness analysis is a complex and disputed issue.

    The Panel on Cost-Effectiveness in Health and Medicine was convened to discuss standards that could be applied across a range of areas of cost-effectiveness.

    Additionally, the Panel had a mandate to resolve some controversial issues about the practice of cost-effectiveness that created difficulty in making comparisons across studies.

    The Panel proposed these guidelines :

    • (1) Do at least some of the analysis from a social perspective ;

    • (2) Assign values to resources that reflect their opportunity costs ;

    • (3) Avoid zero counting of resources ;

    • (4) Avoid double counting of resources ;

    • (5) Make analyses only as exacting as necessary in a study.

    Difficulties in data collection were discussed.

    Among other questions considered by the panel were how to assign a value to the patient's time and which productivity costs to include in a cost-effectiveness analysis.

    With tools and suggestions from the Panel on Cost-Effectiveness in Health and Medicine, the cost analyst can report costs accurately and provide accurate comparisons of cost performance across states, trial modalities, or diseases.
