An economic appraisal is the comparative analysis of alternatives in terms of their costs and consequences. It is used as an aid in decision making because of rising expectations of health services, new technologies, demographic changes and health sector inflation. Essentially, there are not enough resources to satisfy all demands and needs. Available resources are finite. Human wants are infinite. There is a wide range of techniques but the most common forms are:
- Cost minimisation analysis
- Cost effectiveness analysis
- Cost benefit analysis
- Cost utility analysis
