|Popis||Cost-effectiveness (CEA) analysis is one of the measures how to inform decision-makers on the allocation of public resources. Though it was used when considering allocating resources in the public programs, it was later implemented in health care economics, and it has become a basic economic analysis when implementing economic analysis in the health care sector. The role and impact of CEA have its importance and is dealt with in the context of Healthcare resources. Our study aims at an examination of using the Cost-Effectiveness Analysis in health care. As a methodology, the literature review is used. The objective of our study is to overview the knowledge about CEA in health care, its suitability for the health care intervention evaluation and to find arguments, which contribute to the debate on cost-effectiveness (CE) thresholds. Our results show that the ICER should not be the single criterion for decision-making.|
