Abstract Health state valuations of patients and non-patients are not the same, whereas health state values obtained from general population samples are a weighted average of both.
Abstract This paper examines the behaviour of public hospitals in response to the average payment incentives created by price changes for patients classified in different diagnosis-related groups (DRGs).
Abstract Discrete choice experiments (DCEs) are a promising alternative to more resource-intensive preference elicitation methods such as time trade-off (TTO), as pairwise comparisons are more amenable to online completion, which can save time and money.

Abstract This study explores the effects of widowhood on mental health by taking into account the anticipation and adaptation to the partner’s death.
Abstract We examine how inputs for health production, in particular, medical care and health-enhancing time, are combined to improve health.
