Research Paper, HCA 660

Health Economics Valuation Organizations

Read Chapter 14 in our textbook, “Economic Analysis of Clinical and Managerial Interventions.”

Study the websites below for these three organizations: National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (UK’s NICE), Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER, in the U.S., note, some people wanted to add the word “National” to its name, so it would be “NICER,” and Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, PCORI).

Choose three programs or products, with one evaluation from each of these organizations.

In an 8-10 page APA-format research paper, discuss the key methods and issues summarized in our textbook, chapter 14. Compare the economic valuation assessments you have selected, with one from each of these organizations. What are the strengths and weaknesses of these assessments, and how could they be improved? Consider the approaches described in Chapter 14, including Cost-Minimization Analysis, Cost-Effectiveness Analysis, Cost-Benefit Analysis, and Cost- Utility Analysis. Refer to the relevant metrics, such as QALYs, etc.

Provide at least three (3) scholarly references to support your assessment. Apply APA format for all your formatting, citations, and references, unless otherwise indicated.

Your Signature Assignment should be double spaced, and follow APA format. Each paper must include:

  • Title page;
  • Abstract;
  • Use of Level I and II headings (if applicable);
