EQ-5D and PROMs

In an article in Health Economics, Prof Devlin and her co-authors demonstrate the promise of using Lead Time TTO to value health 'state worse than death'. They demonstrate the potential advantages of the approach and identify important next steps in developing the methodology.

The OHE has won a £325,000 grant from the UK Department of Health that focuses on developing a new health status index – the 5 level EQ-5D --that will capture smaller changes in health related quality of life.

Getting the Most out of PROMS is a clearly written, comprehensive review of the practical issues involved in creating reliable PROMs, in presenting results both accurately and in usable formats, and applying them in making choices.

PROMs are intended to fill a critical gap in understanding the impact of health care on the patient's quality of life. OHE is closely involved in PROMs research and policy discussions.
