On the interpretation of cost-effectiveness acceptability curves
This paper discusses the definition, computation and interpretation of cost-effectiveness acceptability curves. A formal definition of the cost-effectiveness acceptability curve based on the net benefit approach is provided. The curve can be computed using parametric or non-parametric techniques and for both computational approaches we establish a formal relation between the cost-effectiveness acceptability curve and statistical inference based on confidence intervals and P-values in cost-effectiveness analysis.
