PRECISE - A health economic approach to evaluate uncertain evidence in personalised medicine

PRECISE is a health economic project in the field of personalised medicine that is funded by NordForsk. PRECISE is an international collaboration between experienced researchers from Norway, Sweden and the UK. A collaboration with Nordic healthcare decisions makers provides a platform for improving national pharmacoeconomic guidelines.

About the Project

PRECISE will provide policy makers with insight into the trade-offs that need to be made when deciding on reimbursement for targeted interventions based on uncertain evidence. PRECISE will develop new methods which will draw on existing principles to deal with uncertainty and heterogeneity in the economic evaluation of personalised medicine. Multiple real case studies will be developed to demonstrate the value of the methods for informing reimbursement decisions for new health technologies.
