Abstract

Pharmaco‐economic evaluations become more important for the reimbursement of pharmaceuticals, and will be obligatory for new pharmaceutical drugs for which an added therapeutic value is claimed and a price premium is proposed by the manufacturer. Therefore, it is important to guide purchasers and providers of pharmaceutical care in their efforts related to the evaluation process. Standard Report Format can support the quality, transparency and exhaustiveness of the data submitted. A multidisciplinary task force developed a Standard Report Format for pharmaco‐economic evaluations in Belgium.
