Although economic outcomes research is an evolving field in health services research, there are correct and incorrect ways to conduct and report on economic outcomes studies. Research practices that help to minimize real or perceived bias will increase the quality and usefulness of such studies for those who sponsor, publish, and use them. Because of public concerns about the potential for bias in the design, analysis, and reporting of economic analyses of health care technology, we formed a task force to develop principles to enhance the credibility of these studies. The Task Force on Principles for Economic Analysis of Health Care Technology included participants from academia, the pharmaceutical industry, the public sector, and private research organizations.
