A software framework
and computational
economic model
of youth mental health

Learn More Code

The ready4 software framework supports transparent, reusable and updatable computational models that are implemented in three steps.

Add Data

Data specific to a decision context and set of assumptions are added to model modules.

Run Analyses

Algorithms are applied to data contained in model modules to generate insight.

The ready4 computational model is being implemented by developing and combining models in six economic domains (Wagstaff and Culyer) of youth mental health.

Health and its value

Valuation of youth mental health outcomes through the development and use of utility mapping models.

Determinants of health

Demand for healthcare

Supply of healthcare

Efficiency and equity

Models to assess distributional impacts and optimal targeting of youth mental health care provision.

Economic evaluation

Models to assess the budget impact and cost-utility of competing youth mental health policy and system design options.
