In a new OHE Research Paper, OHE’s Nancy Devlin and Yan Feng join David Parkin from King’s College London in analysing characteristics of the EQ-5D indexing process that may obscure useful, and important, information about health states. Because the EQ-5D is one of the most used health-related quality of life instruments worldwide, it is crucial that the characteristics of the data be well understood.
OHE's contributions focused on approaches to implementing UK value-based assessment and the details of creating an EQ-5D-5L value set for England.
The Health Economists’ Study Group (HESG), based in the UK, was founded in 1972 to support and promote the work of health economists. Its members are from academic, commercial, and government settings.
OHE Consulting is now offering our clients advice and analytical services on health outcomes and the use of patient-reported outcomes (PRO) data, building on the extensive programme of original research by OHE in this area. The OHE team is recognised internationally for its methodological work on health outcomes measurement, statistical issues in analysis of PRO data, routine health outcomes data in the NHS, and development of new methods for valuing health states.
OHE's extensive expertise in health outcomes will be further enhanced with the addition of Mike.
OHE is delighted to announce the appointment of Mike Herdman as Head of Health Outcomes, a new position at OHE. Mike brings with him extensive experience in psychometrics and in the development and validation of quality of life instruments.
This research addresses two critical issues about the use of the EQ-VAS.
A paper recently published in Quality of Life Research by OHE’s Nancy Devlin and Yan Feng with David Parkin, King’s College, London, describes research on the use of the EQ-VAS in the NHS Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) programme.
Four papers presented at the EuroQol Plenary discussed preliminary findings.
As reported earlier, OHE’s Prof Nancy Devlin and Prof Ben van Hout of the University of Sheffield were awarded a £457,000 grant from the Policy Research Programme (PRP) of the UK’s National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) for research on an EQ-5D-5L value set for England.
