Consulting Reports

Many of the studies OHE Consulting performs are proprietary and the results are not released publicly. Studies of interest to a wide audience, however, may be made available, in whole or in part, with the client’s permission. They may be published by OHE alone, jointly with the client, or externally in scholarly publications.

The following examples of recent OHE Consulting projects are limited to those with publicly available materials that may be downloaded from this website.

Generic preference-based measures are often used for capturing patients’ health-related quality of life (QOL) to assess quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) in health technology assessment (HTA). Whilst this type of measure, which includes commonly used EQ-5D instruments, are useful for enabling comparability between assessments, they might not always capture all the dimensions of QOL that are important to patients.

A paradigm shift is occurring in cancer care with the introduction of tumour-agnostic therapies, for which the indication is defined by the molecular signature of the tumour rather than by its location. Several agents have already gained regulatory approval, including pembrolizumab for solid tumours with high microsatellite instability (MSI-H) or high tumour mutational burden (TMB-H), and larotrectinib and entrectinib for neurotrophic tyrosine receptor kinase (NTRK) fusion-positive solid tumours, and many other emerging molecules are set to enter the market over the next decade.

The NHS is facing unprecedented health system pressure, with a record number of patients waiting for care, while their underlying condition is potentially worsening due to exceptionally long waits.

When there is excess demand for health care, treating one patient means losing the opportunity to treat another. These opportunity costs demonstrate the need to consider health system capacity value, one of the so-called "broader value elements" that is often not fully captured in traditional value assessments.

For the growing number of multi-indication medicines, access may be delayed or even denied due to challenges in linking payment with a medicine’s value across those indications. We assembled a broad range of stakeholders to work toward consensus on the challenges and solutions which promote better patient access and sustainable health care and innovation.
