Economics of Health Technology Assessment

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.

OHE’s Adrian Towse will give a lecture at the Medical University of Vienna on relative effectiveness and the impact on drug development.

OHE’s Professor Nancy Devlin and Koonal Shah have both been appointed to serve on the Valuation Working Group of the EuroQol Research Foundation.

This mapping of priority-setting considers factors such as existence of HTA institutions and commitment to UHC (Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Uganda, China, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam).

Articles co-authored by Adrian Towse, Martina Garau, Donna Messner, and Penny Mohr exploring future expectations of drug relative effectiveness in Europe and comparative effectiveness in the USA just published online.

This mapping of priority-setting considers factors such as existence of HTA institutions and commitment to UHC (Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Uganda, China, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam).

Dr Steven Pearson has convened a US policy workgroup of payers, drug and device manufacturers, patients' groups, and clinician specialty societies to help develop a “value framework”.

A new OHE Consulting Report examines whether respondents completing abstract, hypothetical priority-setting exercises in stated preference studies agree with the policy implications of their choices.

OHE has published an Occasional Paper highlighting the significant shortage of data that forced Claxton et al. to rely on a large number of strong assumptions to produce their results.

Published in Medical Care [open access] is a paper reporting a multi-country pilot study investigating the feasibility of using discrete choice experiments (DCE) to value EQ-5D-5L health states.
