Abstract

Introduction: The Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment center, supervised by Professor Olivia Wu, with interest in health technology assessment methodologies focuses on the areas of evidence synthesis with excellence in modeling, and systematic review applied to pharmacoeconomics. Objective: This sandwich project aims to improve the modeling and the application of data from a systematic review on pharmacoeconomics to improve the pharmacoeconomic tool. Methods: This project can be divided into three stages: 1) Data application of a systematic review on pharmacoeconomics; 2) Pharmacoeconomic analysis improvement; 3) Validate the model of Human Network Disease applied to pharmacoeconomics. Expected results: The increased level of research is reflected in the quality of schools of healthcare, which indirectly impacts on the quality of emergent professionals. Without performing such studies in Brazil, the advance of Brazilian science tends to be slower and more dependent on what is produced in developed countries, at the risk of the results not being applicable to the Brazilian population and Brazilian Public Health System (BPHS) reality. The results to be obtained will certainly contribute to improve the precision and acuity of the tool, and will guide the implementation of Health Technologies such as Pharmaceutical Care. In addition, the health planning promoted with the use of this tool will be able to optimize health resources, since the acquired savings can be reallocated to others health sectors and to the care of more costly morbidities to the BPHS and also improve the development of pharmacoeconomics in Brazil due to the results to be disclosed and the partnerships made, propitiating a better perspective for planning in the BPHS.
