The CHEERS update is intended to be useful for all forms of evaluation, eg, cost-benefit or cost-effectiveness, as well all underlying methods of measuring and valuing effects, eg, network meta-analysis of epidemiologic data, or methods to value consumption benefits of healthcare, such as discrete choice experiments. As with the original CHEERS, it will also identify where other reporting standards should be used (eg, PRISMA-NMA)


There are 4 primary reasons to update the original CHEERS report to keep it up-to-date with current practice:  1) developments in the methods of economic evaluation, 2) increased transparency in the reporting of economic evaluations and modelling, 3) efforts within EQUATOR to conduct impact analyses of reporting standards, and 4) to expand the scope of CHEERS.
