IQWiG: First health economic evaluation completed
Date:10/30/2013

in this test run and identify open questions. For instance, it is still debatable how different aspects of benefit and harm, e.g. side effects, should be weighted and aggregated to an overall conclusion. One option is to use patient preferences. IQWiG has therefore tested methods on how to determine such preferences.

In addition, a lack of data was noticeable; on the cost side this applies, among other things, to SHI claims data, which are not freely available in Germany.

But gaps were also evident on the benefit side: on average, studies investigating the benefit of antidepressants lasted only 8 weeks. This time horizon, however, neither sufficiently reflects the treatment situation of patients affected by major depression, nor informs the self-government, as its decisions cannot be based on such a short period.

Important component for decisions in the health care system

Jrgen Windeler is certain that "the results of the health economic evaluation can nevertheless represent an important component in price negotiations and decisions on reimbursement. But we now need a discussion on the relevance of this component for decisions in the health care system. This will also represent a challenge for the new Minister of Health. The discussion also has to address the amount of resources that should be invested. This investment may be considerable, at least as long as cost data are not standardized. However, thanks to the experiences we have gained in the meantime, further health economic evaluations will probably be performed much faster."
