Health Outcomes and Health Technology Assessment
Health care and health care reforms are towards the top of policy agendas in all countries. Irrespective of their prevailing private, public or mixed health care system, or indeed public attitudes to core issues like access or finance, they face the same challenges relating to the benefits and costs of delivering health and healthcare. In Russia, as well as in other countries, there is a pressing need to close the gap between the practitioners responsible for generating evidence on the one hand and the recipients/users of that evidence on the other.This work package will be developed around health outcome measurement and the evaluation of policy. As the common metric for patients, healthcare professionals and policy makers alike, the issue of outcome measurement is central to all aspects of the delivery and evaluation of healthcare. Drawing on Professor Kind’s vast experience in other countries, we will seek to derive “experienced” values for EQ-5D health states in Russia, as well as drawing on more widely available EQ-5D data to undertake comparative research.
