Measuring and valuing outcomes

As indicated in its recent statement, NICE supports a new valuation study to generate a value set for the EQ-5D-5L. We welcome this announcement.

Chronic diseases affect individuals’ health status and its impact is reflected by the stock of health, which measures the amount of health of a population in a given period of time. In a new study published in Health Economics, Maria Errea and colleagues assess the health-related quality of life of a population using the EQ-5D-5L instrument to, first, estimate the impact of a set of 30 chronic diseases and, second, rank diseases according to their impact on the stock of health for a country.

Research by OHE and the University of Sussex into patients’ preferences for diagnostic tests aimed at reducing antimicrobial resistance has been published in Applied Health Economics & Health Policy. The research found that patients across Europe have different preferences, which may have significant implications for the design and uptake of diagnostic tests.

OHE, in collaboration with RAND Europe, University College London (UCL) and University of Manchester (UoM), has been awarded a new research grant from Cancer Research UK in partnership with Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership (GMHSCP) to further explore the potential of implementing outcome-based payments for cancer treatments.

New research published in Economics and Human Biology demonstrates that elevated blood tests and nurse-collected physical measures predict progression to disability two to four years ahead for individuals without a disability history.

OHE Lunchtime Seminar with Anirban Basu, 24th July 2019. The seminar will examine conceptual and theoretic arguments for use of HYT and illustrate their performance.

In collaboration with University of Technology Sydney, we’re leading a study funded by the EuroQol Research Foundation to develop ‘bolt-on’ descriptors for the EQ-5D. The goal is to develop and test new questions that can be used with people who have cognitive impairment or visual impairment.

Professor Nancy Devlin has recently been awarded an honorary position at OHE as a Senior Visiting Fellow.
