Economic evaluation of integrated new technologies for health and social care: Suggestions for policy makers, users and evaluators

With an ageing population there is a move towards the use of assisted living technologies (ALTs) to provide social care and health care services, and to improve service processes. These technologies are at the forefront of the integration of health and social care. However, economic evaluatios of ALTs, and indeed economic evaluations of any interventions providing both health benefits and benefits beyond health are complex. This paper considers the challenges faced by evaluators and presents a method of economic evaluation for use with interventions where traditional methods may not be suitable for informing funders and decision makers. They propose a method, combining economic evaluation techniques, that can accommodate health outcomes and outcomes beyond health.
