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.

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.

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.
