Cost-effectiveness analyses can be used to help understand the health and economic impacts of implementing new technologies. Dr. Grosse will provide an introduction to terminology and methods used in economic analyses. Examples of estimates of costs, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness in public health and precision medicine will be presented, including ivacaftor treatment for cystic fibrosis, addition of conditions for newborn screening and Lynch syndrome screening of newly diagnosed colorectal cancers. He will discuss the role of cost-effectiveness and other criteria in prioritizing and evaluating public health activities in genomics and precision medicine.
