A form of cost effectiveness analysis comparing alternative interventions or programs in which the components of incremental costs (e.g., additional therapies, hospitalization) and consequences (e.g., health outcomes, adverse effects) are computed and listed, without aggregating these results (e.g., into a cost-effectiveness ratio).
