Economic evaluation in health care provides possibilities for comparing the benefits and costs of different interventions. An economic evaluation sys-tematically assesses both outcome and costs of at least two interventions and produces information on whether or not the benefits outweigh the costs(1). The main aspects of any economic evaluation are to identify, measure, evaluate and compare the costs and effects of the interventions in focus.
