The message here is not about not instituting best practices, but there is a need to be cognisant that in implementing a strategy that is claimed to be cost-effective – that is one with a low ICER – expenditure will not decrease. In this context, a determination of whether a treatment is more or less costeffective can only be made when a service which has a draw on incremental resources is compared to other potential uses of those additional resources. As this discussion highlights, even “economic” approaches to priority setting do not always adhere to the underlying economic concept of opportunity cost at the point of application.
