Health Economics modelling

Medico-economic assessments are decision-making tools aimed at optimizing the use of available medical resources and budgets in terms of health outcomes at a population level.

CEMKA has unique experience in the development of modelling methods according to the guidelines requested by HTA agencies in most therapeutic areas:

  • Medications, Medical Devices, Diagnostic tools, Organisation of Care and Prevention Programs
  • Cost-effectiveness and cost-utility modelling (decision tree, Markov, Monte Carlo, etc.)
  • Budget impact models
  • Quality of life studies: Design and validation of new instruments, Population studies

Key points

  • Strategic guidance and recommendations for cost-effectiveness/ cost-utility studies.
  • Development and/or local adaptation of cost-effectiveness and budget impact models.
  • Estimates of parameters (clinical and economic) from literature review or database analysis.
  • Economic dossier to be submitted to the HAS (French Health Authority): Preparation of the technical report, user guide, formatting the computer model; presentation file.
  • Support in all the phases of technical exchanges with the HAS: guidance and preparation for the preliminary meeting, transition to the economic subcommittee, hearing.
