OHE at HESG Winter 2018

OHE team members will play an active role in the forthcoming Health Economists' Study Group (HESG) Meeting, City, University of London, 10-12th January 2018. We have one paper being discussed and will be discussing others’ papers and chairing sessions. Members of the OHE team will also be available to answer questions about the wider OHE research programme.

OHE work being discussed:

Re-modelling the UK EQ-5D-3L Value Set
Authors: Yan Feng, Nancy Devlin, and Ben van Hout
Summary: The 2017 English EQ-5D-5L value set differs substantially from the 1997 UK EQ-5D-3L value set recommended by NICE. Given the implications of using the 5L value set instead of the 3L value set, it is important to understand the reasons why this is. This paper explores the differences, and results suggest they are primarily caused by differences in the underlying preference data. Applying the 5L modelling methods to 3L valuation data would yield a different value set with different properties than the existing UK 3L value set. However, the modelling methods exert a greater magnitude of difference on the 5L values than on the 3L values. Results raise questions about the interpretation of the constant in value functions.
