The significance of distributive effects in social assessment of health care;
Measuring the Social Importance of Concentration or Dispersion of Individual Health Benefits
Rodríguez, Eva; Pinto, José Luis
Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Departament d'Economia i Empresa
In this paper we address the importance of distributive effects in the social valuation of QALY's. We propose a social welfarefunction that generalises the functions traditionally used in the health economic literature. The novelty is that, depending on the individual health gains, our function can representeither preferences for concentrating or preferences for spreading total gain or both together, an issue which has notbeen addressed until now. Based on an experiment, we observe that this generalisation provides a suitable approximation tothe sampled social preferences.
