In June 2015 OHE’s Nancy Devlin gave a seminar at the Royal Statistical Society on the topic of patient-reported outcomes measures (PROMs) in health economics – providing an overview and highlighting key developments in the field.
On 18 June 2015 OHE’s Nancy Devlin gave a seminar at the Royal Statistical Society on the topic of the use of patient-reported outcomes measures (PROMs) in health economics.
PROMs are commonly used in health economics studies to evaluate the outcomes of health interventions in economic evaluations of medical technologies and to compare the performance of health service providers. The EQ-5D is an example of a ‘generic’ PROM, which is recommended for measuring health benefits by the UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). Since 2009, PROMs data, including the EQ-5D, have been routinely collected across English NHS providers of four key elective interventions.
In her presentation, Nancy introduced the use of PROMS in clinical and economic studies, and outlined recent research which has focused on estimating an English value set for the new version of the EQ-5D, the EQ-5D-5L, for the estimation of quality-adjusted life years (QALYs). Nancy also discussed statistical and normative issues relating to how EQ-5D data should be summarised for statistical analysis, and implications for interpretation and use of results.
The seminar also included presentations by David Parkin (King’s College London) which described the challenges of using PROMs, and by Oliver Rivero-Arias (University of Oxford) which demonstrated recent developments in this area of research.
