A new course is being offered by ISPOR to teach clinicians the basics of health economics and outcomes research.

In addition, the course will cover budget impact analysis models and was to calculate healthcare resource costs. There is a fee for the course, which takes place over four 2-hour daily sessions from February 14th-17th, 2022.
According to ISPOR, “Participants will first review the basic principles and concepts of health economic evaluations, then discuss how to collect and calculate the costs of different alternatives, determine the economic impact of clinical outcomes, and how to identify, track, and assign costs to different types of healthcare resources used. Different health economic models and techniques will be demonstrated including cost-minimization, cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit, cost-utility, and budget impact analysis. Decision analysis, sensitivity analysis, and discounting will all be demonstrated and practiced. This course is suitable for those with little or no experience with health economics.”
