Abstract

Today's society places a great emphasis on value for money, so medical interventions must not only be shown to be effective but also be proved to be costeffective. Drug treatment is no exception. In health economics, costeffectiveness is calculated differently depending on the indication and the perspective. For cholesterol-lowering drugs (as an example) there is a difference between primary and secondary intervention. In primary prevention, thecut off value for absolute risk when treatment is costeffective varies with age and sex, but in secondary prevention, although treatment is costeffective for all groups of patients, costeffectiveness varies with age, sex, cholesterol concentration, and other risk factors. There are three complementary approaches to economic assessment of secondary prevention-analysis of the whole population, subgroup analysis, and modelling.
