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.

The Virtual ISPOR May 2021 (themed ‘HEOR: Evolving for Tomorrow’s Challenge’) commences this week. A number of researchers from OHE will be in attendance to present their research.

Why is the measurement of efficiency in health care so important, but equally challenging? And why is it especially so in primary care? This blog provides an overview of these well-known issues, and offers a glimpse into the results of a new OHE analysis of approaches to measure efficiency in primary care and recommendations for future research.

This research paper examines whether value of a life estimates used in economic evaluation differs between government departments in a selection of developed countries. The authors find that generally estimates used in transport and the environment exceeded those used in health, which suggests that health may be undervalued by departments of health compared to departments of transport or environment.

Members from the team at OHE attended the Health Economists’ Study Group (HESG) Winter 2021 Meeting, hosted online by the Centre for Health Economics in London, LSHTM, from 6th-8th January 2021.

In a new OHE Research Paper, Chris Sampson, David Parkin, and Nancy Devlin consider whether ‘dead’ must be used as an anchor in health state valuation. The authors are looking for feedback from readers to inform future research.

OHE has been awarded the status of Independent Research Organisation (IRO) by Research Councils UK. This blog comments on the significance of this achievement.

On the occasion of Adam Wagstaff’s death, Professor Tony Culyer reflects on his vast legacy to health economics, from Tony’s perspective of having been Adam’s PhD supervisor as well as a friend and collaborator.
