AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How do different health conditions and treatments affect health-related quality of life? How do effects vary with other factors?

Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is a common metric for individual and population health and for comparing outcomes across health conditions. Utility-based HRQOL measures are used to estimate Quality-Adjusted Life Years for cost-effectiveness and other studies. Including utility-based HRQOL in regular AOU data collections (baseline onward) will support myriad statistical, modeling, and evaluation studies by combining other AOU data on patients, conditions (esp. chronic), and treatments.
