“Transferability of economic evaluations”

  • Date: November 10th, 2017
  • Speaker: Victoria Hurtado Meneses and Catherine De la Puente Agurto, Ministry of Health of Chile
  • Theme: A methodology for Economic Evaluation (EE) transferability is proposed to inform decision makers about the cost-effectiveness of a health alternative in a timely manner. This methodology could be specially useful for countries that have limited economic resources to develop research, and could also relieve the existing rush that the authorities have when requesting this type of information.The construction of a “de novo” study continues to be the gold standard to provide valid evidence on the cost-effectiveness of a health intervention. However, there are scenarios where health technologies were evaluated in several countries and there is enough evidence of their cost-effectiveness. It is in these cases that the use of the methodology for EE transferability would be most useful, so that the response given to the decision makers is based on solid evidence and can be given in a short period of time.

‘’Big data and Real World Evidence’’

 

  • Date: May 26th, 2017
  • Speaker: Augusto Afonso Guerra Jr. of the General University of Minas Gerais,  from the the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Brazil
  • Theme: The aim of the webinar was to explore the importance of the origin of the data in health technology assessments. The webinar discussed the difference between randomized clinical trials (RCTs) and real-world evidence (RWE) in the use of administrative and epidemiological databases to measure effectiveness. Although RWE can be very complex, it provides an understanding of health settings which is difficult to achieve through RCTs. This RWE could serve to ensure that health systems are achieving the expected results through the incorporation of health technologies. Afonso Guerra Jr. used a case study from Brazil of Big Data in the evaluation of health technologies.
