Inotai A., Abonyi-Tóth Z., Rokszin G. Voko Z.: Occurrence, survival and annual cost of colorectal-, breast-, prostate- and lung cancer in Hungary (Value in Health, 17: A553)
Objectives: Evaluating effectiveness of oncological treatments and their costs becomes more and more important with respect to the high burden of malignant diseases. The aim of this research was to estimate the occurrence, survival and health care cost of colorectal-, breast-, prostate- and lung cancer patients based on the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) database.
Conclusions: Data suggest that payer’s database is suitable for estimating epidemiologic and
economic indicators of malignant disorders. Payer’s database analysis can support evidence-based policy-making.
