Valuation of Health Outcomes
Identifying Intervention Outcomes
Identifying the intervention outcomes and classifying them as benefits or costs is the next step in conducting a CBA.
The results of interventions are broadly classified as:
  • health outcomes,
  • nonhealth outcomes, or
  • intangible outcomes,
based on the nature of the impacts they represent.
We must include in the analysis all outcomes relevant for the study perspective while keeping in mind practical feasibility issues discussed in the previous chapter, Framing a CBAOpen this in a new window.
Each outcome is classified then as either a benefit or a cost, according to the adopted viewpoint.
