We must not minimize the reality of limited, finite resources. Our heightened awareness of this forces us to be judicious with the use of our resources. We must be intentional with value creation due to endlessly competing options available.
Pharmacoeconomics is used to inform resource allocation decisions and define effective pharmaceutical policies.
Professionals within the healthcare space provide numerous value-added products and services - such as life-saving procedures and medications. Nevertheless, many healthcare decisions are not made solely on demonstrated clinical outcomes but rather include cost, quality of life, and patient-preferences measures. Therefore, anyone who ultimately has the power to make any decision in healthcare needs to equip themselves with the skills to conduct or, at the very least, evaluate outcomes research – of which pharmacoeconomics is a type.
Pharmacoeconomics analyses allow decision-makers to evaluate both the costs and patient health outcomes. Information can be used to make decisions on a patient-by-patient level basis as well as determine policies on a global (macro) scale.
