Pharmacoeconomics is a sub-discipline of health economics, studying the cost-effectiveness of pharmaceutical therapies. The results provided by pharmacoeconomic research can be used to guide an optimal allocation of healthcare resources. Pharmacoeconomic research employs a range of descriptive and analytic techniques that are used in health economics and in other disciplines comprising clinical pharmacology, epidemiology, health technology assessment and risk analysis.
