An economic model to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of COVID-19 interventions and care
COVID-19 Research Area(s): Healthcare Delivery & Policy
BC has successfully prevented widespread transmission and healthcare services overload from COVID-19. However, there are not many studies that evaluate the cost-effectiveness of incoming technology to manage COVID-19, especially through a gender lens as it has been found that there are biological sex-related differences for COVID-19 in terms of exposure and access of healthcare services. From participants' responses, we will learn more about their quality of life, respiratory health, and preferences in terms of health services usage. We will also be able to improve testing strategies in hospitals and identification of high-risk individuals through our economic model created with the data.
