Cost-efficiency is a cornerstone in healthcare management. Facing hard budget constraints, decision-makers must make the best use of the resources dedicated to the section of healthcare they lead. In this aim, they benefit from the use of many instruments, from cost-minimization to cost-benefit analysis and multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA). One of their main challenge is to perform trade-offs that consider the values and preferences of the stakeholders. To date, plenty of research is conducted in this field and relates, for example, to instrument development to measure cost, risk assessment, data management, etc. This Special Issue is open to the subject area of healthcare management and cost-efficiency. The keywords listed below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.
