Quantifying the Efficiency of Health Care Interventions: A Review of Time and Motion Studies presented at ISPOR Conferences between 2008 and 2013

UBC conducted a review of the T&M studies presented at ISPOR meetings in the last five years. The main characteristics of each study were reviewed and discussed: type of medical intervention, study design, source of data, number of groups examined, type of time measurements performed, statistical analyses (including testing for differences among groups or handling potential data centre clustering effect), transformation of time into costs, and type of cost analyses performed.
