Cost-Minimisation Analysis

One of the tools used to carry out an economic evaluation. Cost-minimisation analysis compares the costs of different interventions that provide the same benefits. If they are equally effective, only the costs are compared and the cheapest intervention will provide the best value for money. In practice, there are relatively few cost-minimisation analyses because it is rare for 2 healthcare interventions to provide exactly the same benefits.
