Table 1 Construction of the dependent variable (net benefit) when λ = $1000

From: Using the net benefit regression framework to construct cost-effectiveness acceptability curves: an example using data from a trial of external loop recorders versus Holter monitoring for ambulatory monitoring of "community acquired" syncope

Net Benefit with λ = $1000 Number of Subjects Treatment Group Successful outcome
$1000 * 1 - $648.50 = $351.50 31 Loop recorder Yes
$1000 * 0 - $648.50 = - $648.50 18 Loop recorder No
$1000 * 1 - $212.92 = $787.08 12 Holter monitor Yes
$1000 * 0 - $212.92 = - $212.92 39 Holter monitor No
  1. NOTE: All loop recorders cost $648.50 and all Holter monitors cost $212.92.
