In recent decades, there has been rapid growth in healthcare expenditures. This emphasizes an efficient use of health care resources to maximize economic, clinical, and humanistic outcomes (ECHOs).1 Economic evaluation is one of the tools that identifies a value of health care goods and services, such as drugs, patient care intervention(s), and/or health care programs. Accordingly, evidence from the economic evaluation studies can be used as a basis for decision-making. In other words, study findings are ideally translated into clinical practice and/or health policy.
This Special Issue invites studies that evaluate the economic value of drugs, intervention(s), practices, or policy in health care. A wide range of relevant topics are welcome, such as the application of economic studies to practice or policy, reviews of current challenges and opportunities, and methodological papers.
