Introduction
The core theme throughout my PhD is the relationship between health care spending and longevity. I investigate both sides – how health care spending affects mortality and how mortality affects health care spending, and look at these questions in the context of cost-effectiveness.

Background and Objective The supply-side threshold for the UK National Health Service has been empirically estimated as the marginal returns to healthcare spending on health outcomes. These estimates implicitly exclude future healthcare costs, which is inconsistent with the objective of making the most efficient use of healthcare resources. This pa...
Article
Full-text available
Objectives: A consensus has been reached in The Netherlands that all future medical costs should be included in economic evaluations. Furthermore, internationally, there is the recognition that in countries that adopt a societal perspective estimates of future nonmedical consumption are relevant for decision makers as much as production gains are....
Article
Full-text available
Early warning systems for infectious diseases and foodborne outbreaks are designed with the aim of increasing the health safety of citizens. As a first step to determine whether investing in such a system offers value for money, this study used contingent valuation to estimate people’s willingness to pay for such an early warning system in six Euro...
Article
Full-text available
Objectives In many countries, future unrelated medical costs occurring during life-years gained are excluded from economic evaluation, and benefits of unrelated medical care are implicitly included, leading to life-extending interventions being disproportionately favored over quality of life-improving interventions. This article provides a standard...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose The pressure on healthcare budgets remains high, partially due to the ageing population. Economic evaluation can be a helpful tool to inform resource allocation in publicly financed systems. Such evaluations frequently use health-related outcome measures. However, in areas such as care of older people, improving health outcomes is not neces...
Article
Full-text available
Improving (feelings of) safety is an important goal of many health systems, especially in the context of recurrent threats of pandemics, and natural disasters. Measures to improve safety should be cost-effective, raising the issue of how to value safety. This is a complex task due to the intangible nature of safety. We aim to synthesize the current...
Article
Full-text available
Traditionally, threshold levels of cost‐effectiveness have been derived from willingness‐to‐pay studies, indicating the consumption value of health (v‐thresholds). However, it has been argued that v‐thresholds need to be supplemented by so‐called k‐thresholds, which are based on the marginal returns to health care. The objective of this research is...
