“Medical innovations need to demonstrate they are value for money to cash-strapped health care systems; health economics plays a key role in measuring and valuing these costs and benefits. CASMI brings together multiple disciplines to investigate the value of medical innovations so they can be translated into patient benefit quickly, effectively, and cost-effectively.”
