Brief description This project will estimate the Australian opportunity cost of decisions to fund new health care technologies, such as pharmaceuticals and medical devices. The opportunity cost represents the health benefits that could be achieved if the resources used to fund a new technology are used to fund the best alternative technology or service instead. We will then disseminate the information to decision makers, to improve funding decisions, and hence the efficiency of the Australian health care system.
