Cost-effectiveness is becoming increasingly important in decision processes concerning the reimbursement of healthcare interventions. At the same time, this criterion also raises a lot of discussion, because many people feel uncomfortable when costs are considered in healthcare decision-making. The Health Technology Assessment at the department of Health Sciences has been involved in research and teaching on economic evaluations (i.e. studies in which cost-effectiveness is analysed) for over 10 years. We have established ourselves as a highly specialized group with advanced expertise in the methodology of economic evaluations.
