Meet some of the OHE team at the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) 2019 conference in New Orleans, 18-22 May.

The Student Mental Health Research Network (SMaRteN), in which OHE is a collaborator, is conducting research to find out which outcome measures are most useful in the context of student wellbeing.

A new paper by OHE and Health Education England on the value of international volunteers’ experience to the NHS has been published in Globalization and Heath.

Koonal Shah gave a webinar for the International Health Economics Association on the topic of adult versus adolescent preferences for EQ-5D-Y health states.

A new OHE Research Paper considers whether we can compare and aggregate patient-reported outcome (PRO) data between people and settings. The paper is authored by Nancy Devlin (University of Melbourne), Paula Lorgelly (King’s College London) and Mike Herdman (OHE).

Estimating a cost-effectiveness threshold reflecting the opportunity cost of adopting a new technology in a health system is not easy. A new OHE report provides empirical evidence on the relationship between health outcomes and health expenditures in England. Results suggest that setting a cost-effectiveness criterion for NICE may not be capable of being synthesised using scientific methods alone, but involve political judgements.

Research just published in Public Administration Review, co-authored by OHE’s Professor Graham Cookson, demonstrates that contracting out auxiliary public services may lower the quality of the core service as well as the auxiliary service. Studying NHS cleaning services, the research shows that contracted out cleaning is cheaper but lower quality and leads to worse health outcomes including higher rates of hospital-acquired infections.

OHE is a collaborator on SMaRteN, and we’ve just announced the first funding call on “What is distinctive about student mental health?”

Making Outcome-based payments a reality in the NHS authored by The Office of Health Economics, RAND Europe, King’s College London, and Cancer Research UK, and commissioned by Cancer Research UK in partnership with Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership, explores alternative pricing models and the implications of outcome-based payment schemes for improving access to cost-effective cancer drugs.

OHE’s Koonal Shah gave a presentation on societal values and the provision of end of life treatments at a Manchester Centre for Health Economics seminar.
