Statistical methods for cost-effectiveness analysis: a personal history
The last 25 years have seen a large increase in the contribution that health economic analysis has made in national and international decisions about health care provision. Andy Briggs has been working at the interface between medical statistics and health economics throughout this period.
In this talk, Andy gives a personal history of that journey with an emphasis on how statistical thinking has improved the methods of health economic evaluation over that period. Looking to the future, there remains much potential for statistical methods to continue to improve the way in which we evaluate the cost-effectiveness of health care interventions and to improve health care decision making as a result.
