OBJECTIVES To assess the cost-effectiveness and cost utility of sitagliptin/metformin for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus compared to those of glibenclamide/metformin in a semiprivate hospital and to compare the cost-effectiveness and cost utility of sitagliptin/metformin in a semiprivate hospital to those in the public health system (PHS) of Ecuador in 2019. METHODS A cost-effectiveness study considering the probability of cardiovascular death as the outcome and quality-adjusted life-...
OBJECTIVES To describe the implementation and 1-year results of a value-based bariatric surgery program in Brazil. METHODS The study was conducted at a private hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil (Hospital Alemao Oswaldo Cruz). A value-based healthcare program was implemented by designing an episode of care for eligible patients and developing a bundled payment model in which a single payment was made for the bariatric surgery covering the preoperative workup and ending 30 days after discharge.

OBJECTIVE Social health preference sets are necessary for conducting health economic evaluations. Values from other countries are often used when local sets are not available, which may alter the results. We aimed to evaluate the degree of variability of currently available country-specific value sets of the EuroQol EQ-5D instrument from South American countries (SAC). METHODS We selected EQ-5D value sets from SAC and 2 reference countries. We obtained crosswalk value sets for the countries that...
Abstract null null Objectives null In 2015, a dam collapsed at Samarco iron ore mine in the municipality of Mariana, Brazil, and contaminated more than 600 km of watercourses and destroyed almost 1600 acres of vegetation. Nineteen people died and more than 600 families lost their homes. This study aimed to estimate health-related quality of life (HRQoL) losses owing to this disaster. null null null Methods null We collected data from a probabilistic sample of 459 individuals aged 15 years or old...

This article aims to present a wider perspective on decision making that incorporates societal values when prioritizing future resource allocation among disease areas. METHODS Sociotechnical application of multiple-criteria decision analysis with a set of criteria (value judgments) tha...
