Economic issues related to the health sector have been gaining much attention in recent years, and the challenge of providing quality and comprehensive health care to a growing population has become increasingly complex.

This book’s aim is to introduce readers to basic principles of economics and to a set of analytical tools of economic evaluations and their application in the health sector.

The most important evaluation techniques are explained by examples: cost-minimization analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, cost-utility analysis and cost-benefit analysis. Moreover the authors present the basic concepts for understanding and applying the budget impact analysis and the patient reported outcomes.
