Objectives:
To develop good practices on utility measurement within the clinical trial program for a new intervention. (1) identify and discuss the issues inherent in the collection of utility data for economic models in clinical studies; (2) provide researchers with an understanding of how to analyze and resolve the issues; (3) develop good practices for the early planning of utility data collection within a product development program and the design of utility data collection during protocol development for a planned clinical trial or study; and (4) develop good practices for analyses and reporting to make best use of the data in economic evaluations.

Activities:
MEASUREMENT OF HEALTH STATE UTILITY VALUES FOR ECONOMIC MODELS IN CLINICAL STUDIES – FINDINGS OF THE GOOD PRACTICES TASK FORCE
Monday, May 18, 2015 ISPOR 20th International Meeting, Forum Presentation, Philadelphia, PA, USA

HEALTH STATE UTILITY VALUES: MEASURING, MODELLING, AND MAPPING
November 11, 2014 – 17th Annual European Congress, Forum Presentation, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Final Report
The task force sent out drafts for review twice during the development process and received verbal comments on work to date during an ISPOR Forum. All comments, many of which were substantive, were read by the task force and addressed as appropriate. The reviewer comments and author responses to the draft report are available upon request to taskforce@ispor.org.
