How can we identify efficiency variations across general practices and opportunities to improve their productivity if the measurement of output does not reflect the value produced? We propose a new instrument to measure the valued output of primary care in England.
OHE and the University of Technology Sydney are leading a study funded by the EuroQol Research Foundation to develop a ‘bolt-on’ descriptor for the EQ-5D. The goal is to develop and test new questions that can be used with people who have hearing impairments. We’re currently seeking research...
A recent series of papers examines the effects of multiple primary health care interventions (introduction of health facility accreditation, introduction of user fees, and discontinuation of performance-based financing schemes) under Egypt’s Health Sector Reform Program between 2000 and 2014.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently issued its first guidance for a digital therapeutic. NICE recommends the use of Sleepio for treating insomnia symptoms in primary care. OHE played a vital role in developing the evidence to support the guidance. In this blog post, Chris Sampson shares the story of how we got there, and some lessons from the experience.
OHE’s Chris Sampson is currently Chair of the ISPOR Open Source Models Special Interest Group (SIG). The SIG recently published their first journal article in Value in Health and will be delivering a Forum at this week’s ISPOR conference. In this blog post, Chris provides some background to the work and an invitation to get involved.
OHE’s Chris Sampson is leading a new Research Topic published in Frontiers in Health Services, titled ‘Opportunity Costs in Health Care: Cost-effectiveness Thresholds and Beyond’. The Research Topic is open for submissions, and the editors are inviting research and commentary on a range of issues that the OHE team has been tackling for many years.
The HTAi 2021 Annual Meeting (‘Innovation Through HTA’) will take place virtually from Saturday, June 19, to Wednesday, June 23, 2021. A number of the team from OHE will be in attendance to present their research.
Our new paper explores the evidence currently being used to allocate budgets between public sector activities in the UK and its limitations. We argue that there is much that can and should be done to improve the evidence base to inform the allocation of public sector budgets across portfolios. We propose a pragmatic approach to measure and value disparate public sector outputs in a commensurate manner.
