Hope or hype : the obsession with medical advances and the high cost of false promises by Richard A Deyo( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 609 libraries worldwide
"Hope or Hype outlines the hazards - from unnecessary treatment to actual harm or even death - of embracing medical advances without serious consideration of efficacy, long-term benefit, side effects, cost, and other critical factors. The book also provides a frank and sometimes startling look at how companies get us to buy into the need for the most expensive treatments, and even manipulate clinical trials and data in order to present the "right" result."--Jacket
Health status and health policy : quality of life in health care evaluation and resource allocation by Donald L Patrick( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 466 libraries worldwide
This book has two major objectives. The first is to propose the Health Resource Allocation Strategy as a social and political process for comparing costs and outcomes of alternative policy options in the health and medical care arena to select interventions with greatest benefit in relation to cost. The second objective is to provide a reference for state-ofthe-art development and application of health status and quality of life measures for health care policy and research, including clinical applications. Not all policy applications of health- related quality of life involve resource allocation. Thus we present guidelines to assessment for use in program evaluation, monitoring of health policy, clinical trials, and health services research

Social indicators for health planning and policy analysis by Milton M Chen( Book )
2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Concept of health involves two dimensions: Level of function at a point in time and probability of transition to other levels at future times. This paper describes two purposed indices derived from this concept that describe different aspects of community wide health status and provide useful information for health policy decisions. The proposed function status index can be constructed using current data collection mechanisms and would significantly augment our knowledge of the level of well-being of the population. The other proposed index, value-adjusted life expectancy, would give a reasonable approximation of an ideal health status index, but would require collecting new kinds of data

Influence of perspective on preferences for prostate cancer outcomes by Katharine Suzanne Gries( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The utility value is a necessary component of the cost-utility analysis (CUA). They can be obtained from various perspectives and using different methods. The relationship between elicitation methods and perspectives is unknown in prostate cancer. To quantify the difference in utility values comparing three different perspectives and disease-specific health states with a generic preference measure. Then to understand the sensitivity of the disease-specific utility value derived from three perspectives in a CUA model. Disease-specific health states were developed with attributes that varied across five health domains: sexual function, urinary function, bowel function, pain, and emotional well-being. Men with prostate cancer, men at risk for prostate cancer, and a sample from the general population were recruited to value the health states using standard gamble (SG) methodology and to complete the Health Utilities Index (HUI). Disease-specific utility values were modeled in a prostate cancer CUA to assess the sensitivity of the parameter estimate. 136 participants (n= 43 prostate cancer; n=40 at risk, n=49 general population) completed the study visit. Mean disease-specific utility values ranged from 0.46 to 0.85 for men with prostate cancer, 0.37 to 0.75 for men at risk, and 0.32 to 0.81 for the general population group. Mean HUI3 current health ratings: men with prostate cancer HUI3: 0.75 (SD=0.260), men at risk HUI3: 0.77 (SD=0.238), general population HUI3: 0.84 (SD=0.178). There were small differences in utility values comparing between perspectives and between the SG and HUI methods. While the incremental cost-effectiveness ratios were high and would not be considered cost-effective, using the perspective of the general population was more cost effective compared to the patient perspective. The utility values for men with prostate cancer support the hypothesis that patients experiencing the disease state (patient perspective) assign higher utility values to disease-specific health states. Utility values were higher when obtained by the generic, preference based measure compared to the disease-specific method. The CUA was sensitive to the change in utility value when holding all other parameters constant
