Outcomes Research

Definition

Health Economics

  • This term has come to embrace a wide range of outcomes, both biological and those to do with quality of life, of clinical interventions. In the commercial sector, outcomes researchers tend to be those with a wider remit, for example one embracing estimates of all relevant dimensions of a decision problem (outcomes, risks, uncertainties, costs, service impact and manageability). This is largely in response to the growth in the informational demands of regulatory agencies.
