Healthcare Resources

Healthcare resources are scarce, and policy makers and health planners make choices between alternative uses of resources. Economic evaluation is important when allocating scarce resources. Cost–benefit analysis, cost effectiveness analysis, and cost utility analysis are decision-making tools that help policy makers and planners examine healthcare costs and the consequences of alternative health programs, services, and interventions.Prepare at least a 5-page overview of cost effectiveness analysis and cost–benefit analysis as decision making tools in the allocation of health resources.
