Health monitoring technologies are often said to be cost effective or cost saving by helping care providers to work more efficiently or by detecting a health episode earlier. But is this statement true? This session will explore this issue in an interactive session that would be of interest to researchers, students, clinicians and those just interested in the topic. No understanding of economics necessary. It will review how economic analyses are conducted in health care and discuss the challenges in conducting economic analyses of monitoring technologies.
