Prioritize pharmaceuticals, medical devices, equipment, procedures and other health technologies.
Health decision-makers have to grapple with how best to allocate new funding as it becomes available. They must choose from entirely new technologies as well as, potentially, how much more to spend on existing technologies.
Such choices involves confronting trade-offs between multiple objectives or criteria, and so methods based on Multi-Criteria Decision-Making are increasingly popular.
