Dutch Healthcare Institute released the “Guideline for conducting health economic evaluations”

On January 16, 2024, the Dutch Healthcare Institute (ZIN) published an updated version of the “Guideline for conducting health economic evaluations”. The objective of this guideline is to set a clear framework for economic evaluations intended for decision-making about the introduction or reimbursement of new healthcare interventions or decision-making about termination of reimbursement for existing healthcare interventions. 

The guideline includes the following three modules:

  • Cost manual, which focuses on the identification, measurement, and valuation of costs used in economic evaluations;
  • QALY and quality-of-life measurements module, which is aimed at measuring health-related quality of life and the various instruments that can be used for this;
  • Value of Information analysis module, which focuses on uncertainty, probabilistic analysis, and Value of Information analysis.

The previous version of the Guideline was published in 2016.
