Guidelines on Methods for Measurement of Health Utilities

Going Global in Pharma: Understanding Preferred Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Utility Measures by Country

Health Utility Measurement

Are you up to date with HTA recommendations on health utility measurement for your cost utility model? Many HTA agencies make specific statements about their preferences for health utility measures, but their guidelines change over time. And it can be hard to find the right document. 

Summary Table

In our work, we must stay up-to-date on Health Technology Assessment authority guidelines for health state utility measurement methods across multiple countries. We've developed a summary table of these guidelines that we trust you'll find helpful. Here's a few of the health technology assessment agencies included in our downloadable pdf table:  

  • France's Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS)
  • Spain's HTA Network
  • The UK's National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)
  • Sweden's Tandvårds- och läkemedelsförmånsverket (TLV)
  • and more

If you need more, our integrated team of experts can help you with your utility measurement and HTA submission needs:
• Utility research design (trials, observational studies, surveys)
• Instrument/method selection
• Study implementation
• Utility data analysis
• Data incorporation into cost utility models

Identifies preferred instruments/methods, including: Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) • Time Trade-Off (TTO) • Standard Gamble (SG) • Discrete Choice Experiments (DCE) •  EQ-5D  • Cross-walk • HUI • QWB • SF-6D • 15D • AQoL • Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS)
