A message on the LIS Medical list recently asked about alternatives to the now defunct NHS Economic Evaluation Database (EED) (archive of NHS EED is still available at: https://www.crd.york.ac.uk/CRDWeb/). Here are some of the suggestions from the group (in random order):
- The TRIP Database also includes NHS EED – http://www.tripdatabase.com/ Search 70+ databases from ‘Evidence-based’ sites around the world. This resource aims to support those working in primary care. Sources searched by TRIP include evidence based synopses, clinical questions, guidelines, E-Textbooks, medical images, patient information leaflets, systematic reviews and core general medical journals.
- Try Return on Investment in Medline, you should get papers indexed with subject headings/sub-headings such as – Economics, Medical; *Investments — statistics & numerical data; Models, Economic; *Public Health – economics
- Useful publications on this topic include: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30442221 and https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/14737167.2016.1246962
- We also use Tufts Cost Effectiveness Analyses Registry (CEA Registry) http://healtheconomics.tuftsmedicalcenter.org/cear2n/search/search.aspx and Research Papers in Economics (RePEc) https://ideas.repec.org/
