Measuring and Valuing Outcomes

OHE and the University of Technology Sydney are leading a study funded by the EuroQol Research Foundation to develop a ‘bolt-on’ descriptor for the EQ-5D. The goal is to develop and test new questions that can be used with people who have hearing impairments. We’re currently seeking research...

A new publication co-authored by OHE's David Mott provides an overview of the state of practice for accounting for preference heterogeneity in...

Carer quality of life impacts can be included in health technology evaluations, however little guidance is provided. NICE considered providing more guidance as part of their recent methods review. Ultimately, a set of ‘minimum evidence requirements’ were produced, but these were not included...

This blog post is the second in a series on the new National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) health technology evaluation manual. Each post provides a critical discussion on a particular topic, including the expected implications of the changes (or lack thereof) in the manual; what is still missing; and what further research is needed.

Outcome based payment (OBP) is a flexible payment mechanism that links the price the NHS pays for a medicine to the outcomes it achieves in practice for NHS patients. In 2019 we published the results of a research study which described that OBP could help to accelerate patient access to some new medicines, ensure close monitoring of real-world patient benefit, promote value for money in NHS spending and support innovation.

OHE publishes a research report sponsored by CRUK on the practical considerations for outcome-based payment in the NHS

Cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) is the economic evaluation method that is typically preferred by health technology assessment agencies.

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.

In a new OHE Research Paper, Chris Sampson, David Parkin, and Nancy Devlin consider whether ‘dead’ must be used as an anchor in health state valuation. The authors are looking for feedback from readers to inform future research.

"Methods for Analysing and Reporting EQ-5D Data" is the first published guide on how to analyse data produced by the EQ-5D. The official launch of this new, open-access book will take place as an online event on Tuesday 15th December, 13.00-14.00 GMT.
