Life years lost and life years gained
At iMTA we constantly try to improve methods for cost-effectiveness research. We also like to make the tools we develop available free of charge (although we sometimes apply user fees for commercial use).
Two crucial elements within cost-effectiveness research are additional costs in life years gained, and the number of quality adjusted life years (QALYs) that are lost due to a condition.
With the Practical Application to Include Disease costs (PAID), one can estimate the additional costs incurred to the health care system due to improved longevity after treatment. Find the free PAID tool here.
With the iMTA Disease Burden Calculator, one can estimate the total (and proportional) QALYs lost. Using the probabilistic part of the iDBC, one can also estimate the probability of being cost-effective given a range of thresholds. Expressing QALYs lost due to a condition is and important measure of unmet need. Find the free iDBC tool here.
The Dutch costing manual is the standard work for costing research in health care. The costing tool is an easy way of looking up and indexing references prices for a broad range of hospital services. Please find the free costing tool here.
