Estimating the cost-effectiveness of ePAMS+


We seek to:

  • Conduct an analysis of the intervention cost of ePAMS+
  • Estimate the cost-effectiveness of ePAMS+ in terms of cost per unit change in defined daily dose (DDD)
  • Model the effect of any reduction in DDD on the health outcomes such as Clostridium Difficile Diarrhoea (CDD), using estimates from the literature to populate the model
  • Estimate the cost utility of e PAMS+ from a one year, health services, perspective
  • Conduct sensitivity analyses
  • Contribute to an International effort to calibrate the economic case for antimicrobial resistance control and hence for the health economics of a particular contribution (such as that of ePAMS+)
