Purpose To extend existing analyses of whether and how the age of respondents is related to their time trade-off (TTO) valuations of hypothetical EQ-5D-3L health states, and to contribute to the existing debate about the rationale and implications for using age-specific utilities in health technology assessment (HTA).

Background Standard methods for eliciting the preference data upon which ‘value sets’ are based generally have in common an aim to ‘uncover’ people’s preferences by asking them to evaluate a subset of health states, then using their responses to infer their preferences over all dimensions and levels. An alternative approach is to ask people directly about the relative importance to them of the dimensions, levels and interactions between them. This paper describes a new stated preference approach...

Estimating a cost-effectiveness threshold reflecting the opportunity cost of adopting a new technology in a health system is not easy. This OHE research paper provides empirical evidence on the relationship between health outcomes and health expenditures in England. Results suggest that setting a cost-effectiveness criterion for NICE may not be capable of being synthesised using scientific methods alone, but involve political judgements. Two methods are used to explore the marginal relationship ...

Abstract Background The distribution of EQ-5D-3L values (health state profiles, weighted by value sets) often shows two distinct groups, arising from both the distribution of profiles and the characteristics of value sets. To date, there is little evidence about the distribution of EQ-5D-5L values. Objectives To explore the distribution of EQ-5D-5L profiles; to compare the distributions of EQ-5D-5L values arising from the English value set (EVS) and a ‘mapped’ value set (MVS); and to develop fur...

Objectives This study aimed to evaluate the performance of EQ-5D data mapped from SF-12 in terms of estimating cost effectiveness in cost-utility analysis (CUA). The comparability of SF-6D (derived from SF-12) was also assessed.

Clinical trials are increasingly being conducted across multiple countries and regions. The collection of patient-reported outcome (PRO) data in these trials, and the practice of pooling data from them in analysis, relies on patients' responses to PRO instruments being strictly comparable. There are two aspects of this assumption - (a) that the PRO instruments themselves generate responses which are strictly comparable when fielded in different contexts; and (b) that the way in which people from...
