Efficiency Frontier Analysis

Analysis of specific indications.

 

Efficiency Frontier Analysis

The efficiency frontier analysis aims to extend the established approach of incremental cost-effectiveness ratios for health economic evaluations. Furthermore, the rational use of available funds within an indication should be informed by taking into account the preceding benefit assessment from IQWiG. The efficiency frontier compares the benefit of the existing intervention within an indication with the endpoint-related net cost of intervention. The additional therapeutic benefit assessed in the preceding benefit assessment will form the clinical background.
