The example of cost effectiveness model

Model for economic evaluation of ‘PhysioDirect’ telephone assessment and advice services for patients with MSK in UK

The structure of the economic model developed based on UK programme

  • The model calculates both costs and health effects (Quality-adjusted life years – QALYs) related to intervention under consideration and usual treatment
  • Costs and health effects are combined to estimate incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER)

The results of the economic model developed based on Polish RA programme

The results show that introduction of intervention under assessment results in improvement in patients quality of life at additional costs. Cost per 1 additional QALY is almost GBP 3 000.
