HiSLAC health economics modelling begins

We are pleased to announce that we have now started constructing our health economics model to examine the cost-effectiveness and budget impact of HiSLAC. We will provide updates as this work stream progresses.

The health economics work will be managed between the University of Warwick and Brunel University under the direction of Prof Richard Lilford and Dr Joanne Lord.

The model will be used to estimate the incremental cost per Quality Adjusted Life Year gained through the use of high-intensity rather than low-intensity specialist-led acute care at weekends in NHS hospitals in England. In addition we will estimate the budget impact pf high-intensity care at local and national levels.
