Abstract:       Economic evaluation tools are largely accepted as indispensable instruments in the evaluation of healthcare goods, services and system reforms. These tools are of critical importance in decision-making for developing evidence-informed policies pertaining to all aspects of resource allocation. Such tools provide insights on how to improve efficiency and how to protect equity of both healthcare financing and provision. This pre-conference will discuss the above issues.

About the group: The ASPHER Working Group on Economic Evaluation in Healthcare in Europe was launched on 2nd of July, 2019. The ultimate goal of the group is to establish the current status, future needs and good practices in teaching healthcare economic evaluation in Europe. The focus is on both course content and educational approaches, also encompassing the exchange of best practices and know-how. The group activities help to diffuse knowledge on healthcare economic evaluation or public health programmes, including economic evaluation as a core element.

Background: European countries are challenged to assure the sustainability of their health sectors and to safeguard the healthcare service funding and provision. There are no unique solutions given the diversity of the European health systems, country regulations, fiscal capacities, as well as differences in social values. Even so, health economics tools are largely accepted across the countries as indispensable instruments in the evaluation of healthcare goods, services and system reforms implemented or considered for implementation. These tools are of critical importance in decision-making for developing evidence-informed policies pertaining to all aspects of resource allocation. Such tools provide insights on how to improve efficiency and how to protect equity of both healthcare financing and provision. No doubt that human capacity in the area of healthcare economic evaluation is highly needed in Europe.
