NICE pushes for better way to measure health-related quality of life

NICE is backing the collection of new data to measure health-related quality of life, which it hopes will resolve concerns about the existing EQ-5D-5L value set for England.

A new study will gather the public’s views about which aspects of health matter the most. The results of the study will be used to create a value set which converts questionnaire responses into a number called a utility value. This information is used to inform many of NICE’s decisions about whether treatments provide good value for money.
