CATALYST has considerable experience of constructing economic models to calculate the health economic impact of healthcare technologies, a fact proven by its extensive publication record. Techniques used to build such models are multifold and include:
- Integrating data from clinical trials and expert consensus panels
- Using real world evidence from longitudinal databases
- Using real world evidence from chart reviews
- Using real world evidence from patient registries Using clinical outcomes and resource data from patients’ records
- Adapting economic models to reflect intra-country and regional differences
These are just a few of the more familiar methods CATALYST has used in performing economic evaluations that are directly applicable to client needs. Such models, properly designed, executed and disseminated, have been proven to influence decision making.
