In the spotlight

Efficiency Studies

With a rising demand for care and increasing costs, the Dutch health care faces a shortage of resources. Decision-makers in policy and practice need to carefully weigh the benefits of interventions against costs. Efficiency Studies provide the evidence base to make decisions about the introduction of innovative interventions while discouraging the use of inefficient interventions. Efficiency studies is a collaborative effort of patients, researchers, practitioners and policymakers.

Topics

  • While the pharmaceutical, medical technologies, chemical, cosmetics and food industries are increasingly seeking solutions to improve, for example, their prediction of clinical efficacy and/or risk and safety assessments without the use of animals, the solutions are still insufficient;
  • Societal demand for animal-free testing is increasing and there is a need for new innovations to improve human health, a stimulation of this research field is therefore needed.
