Raison statistique et catégories du droit de la santé

Abstract : Law-makers as well as judges are sponsoring a new medical approach based on data analysis rather than clinical examination: an evidence-based medicine. In parallel, a policy of health coverage that is dependent on the efficiency of the respective medical options is being developed. Statistics supports these trends by promoting the quantitative description of illnesses and remedies and, in turn, allowing the cost-benefit analysis of medical treatments. The growing influence of statistics in public health is indicative of a renewed way of thinking. It is of paramount importance to pay attention to this shift of paradigm to understand the overall regulation of the health sector and its dynamics. It is also the best way to question the limitations our legal system may place on policy innovations based on the use of statistics.
