Les évaluations de coûts en santé sont-elles transférables ?
AbstractThe transferability of cost evaluation results is studied using Principal Component Analysis and Euclidean distances. The method allows to determine whether the transferability of the results across countries is low, medium or high. The use of these two validated tools for measuring result transferability is original. The functionality of the method is demonstrated in the context of an innovative treatment in oncology. A global analysis demonstrates, for example, the existence of a large distance between Italy and the Netherlands. All factors combined, there is little transferability between the two countries. A more detailed analysis shows that distances are maximum, and thus transferability is minimum, for the costs of buildings and organizational settings.
