EU Study Finds UK Health Product Benefit Metric Flawed
Date:2/1/2013

nstant over time. The head of the ECHOUTCOME study group is quoted by the UK’s Independent as saying that "agencies such as NICE should abandon QALY in favor of other approaches,” and that “European health technology assessment agencies currently looking to adopt the NICE model must seriously reconsider.”

Stephen Whitehead, chief executive of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, said the study “shows why NICE so often delivers conclusions that are out-of-step with other bodies and can undermine clinical work in the UK and most importantly deny UK patients in need, access to new and proven treatments.”

RegLink partner Ansis Helmanis points out that “the European debate is timely and should be taken up on this side of the Atlantic as well,” and that “reimbursement gatekeepers here, both public and private, are gearing up for health care reform and are refining the criteria they use – or will be using – to make the same kind of decisions that are being made by European gatekeepers such as NICE. Something flawed yet determinative as to whether patients will or will not get access to a new and possibly life extending therapy should not be used.”

The ECHOUTCOME consortium’s eight entities recommend replacing QALY with a more flexible case by case approach, such as a cost-benefit analysis of how effective a drug is in achieving disease remission or preventing relapse.
