(p.3) 1 Introduction
Using Cost-Effectiveness Analysis to Improve Health Care

Peter J. Neumann

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter describes the motivation for the book. It notes that the book is motivated by the thought that an inquiry into the uses and non-uses of CEA will yield important lessons about the nature of the resistance, and about ways to advance the field. It also states that a secondary impetus is the idea that how a nation uses CEA offers a prism through which to understand the collective values underlying its health care system.

Keywords:   cost-effectiveness analysis, CEA, economic evaluation, health care
