Experts highlight the need to move beyond conventional cost-effectiveness analysis

ISPOR, the whizz brotherhood for fettle economics and circumstances research, proffered a panel aeon this afternoon, “Should We Advance Beyond Old-fashioned Cost-Effectiveness Inquisition? If So, How? [IP5],” at ISPOR 2018 in Baltimore, MD, USA.

Darius N. Lakdawalla, PhD, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USA unburdened the panel. Panelists ranked: Peter J. Neumann, ScD, Tufts Medical Center, Boston, MA, USA; Charles E.
