Cost minimisation analysis is a method of comparing the costs of alternative interventions (including the costs of managing any consequences of the intervention), which are known, or assumed, to have an equivalent medical effect. This type of analysis can be used to determine which of the treatment alternatives provides the least expensive way of achieving a specific health outcome for a population.
