  1. Valuing outcomes in health care : A comparison of willingness to pay and quality-adjusted life-years.

    Article - En anglais

    Quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs) and willingness to pay (WTP) are two preference-based measures of health-related outcomes.

    In this article, we compare these two measures in eliciting individuals'preferences for health outcomes associated with shingles.

    To collect the necessary preference data, we administered computer-interactive interviews to sample of 65-to 70-year-olds.

    We found no significant correlation between QALYs and WTP across individuals.

    We discuss our findings and argue that our results raise questions about whether QALYs and WTP are equivalent preference-based measures of health outcomes.
