In some modeling exercises, costs and/or quality-of-life effects may actually be measured, but effectiveness data usually are not. The advantages and disadvantages are the obverse of evaluations carried out in the context of a trial. Modeling allows the evaluation of many more programs at more intervals, but the comparisons between programs may be subject to greater bias. Modeling is useful when the results of clinical trials are conflicting [14], when clinical trials have not yet been performed [15], or when the time horizon of clinical trials is limited [16].

One advantage of linking an economic evaluation to an RCT is that cost and effectiveness data are at least theoretically more valid, subject as they are 26 to the blinding, randomization, and explicit definition of outcomes that minimize the potential for bias in RCTs. In addition, comprehensive cost data are usually relatively easy to gather within the context of a clinical trial. On the other hand, the representativeness of cost data gathered within a trial is often difficult to determine [7].
