EBSCO Adds Health Economic Evaluations Database

The Health Economic Evaluations Database (HEED), containing information on studies of cost-effectiveness and other forms of economic evaluation of medicines, is now available from EBSCO Publishing. Initially developed as a joint initiative between the Office of Health Economics (OHE) and the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations (IFPMA), HEED provides comparative analysis of costs and consequences about medicines and other healthcare interventions from around the world for informed decision making.

The database includes more than 47,500 selected records, bibliographies, and data from more than 5,000 journals. HEED also includes, in bibliographic detail, entries from the Wellcome and Battelle databases of economic evaluation literature. About 250 new references are added to HEED with each monthly update.

HEED is an international database and will appeal to health economists spanning the globe. This resource includes 1,500 English abstracts of non-English evaluations in the main languages (Russian, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese).

HEED is available via EBSCOhost. Users can customize their searches with a variety of search options and limiters along with an intuitive approach to searching online databases. More information about HEED and other multidisciplinary medical databases from EBSCO Publishing is available at www.ebscohost.com/biomedical-libraries/subjects/category/multi-disciplinary-medical.
