Excerpt
Health-status classification systems that use preference-based approaches, including multi-attribute utility functions, are critically examined in this chapter. Five major issues are considered: an underlying conceptual framework; the definition of health status; choice of domains; relationships among the domains; and obtaining data on the quality of population health. (Related issues are discussed in chapter 10.2). An underlying conceptual framework All measurement of health status is based, implicitly or explicitly, on some form of conceptual framework and some set of fundamental normative assumptions (assumptions about fundamental values or objectives – statements about what should be). It is thus important to be explicit about the underlying framework employed. The framework I employ is explicitly based on microeconomic theory, and it is compatible with approaches in the social sciences, epidemiology, health-services research and the health sciences (Becker 1965; Feeny 2000; Grossman 1972; Rosenzweig and Schultz 1982; Rosenzweig and Schultz 1983). Frameworks used in related chapters in this volume are similar to the one presented here. Basic references on utility theory in health economics include: (Torrance 1986; Torrance and Feeny 1989) and (Feeny and Torrance 1989). A simplified version of the framework appears below.
