Creating health outcomes indices

There is no widely accepted metric that accurately and timely measures the burden of disease or tracks health status or health system performance through the use of real-world patient data, according to lead author Efthimios Parasidis of Global Health Outcomes, Inc., and co-authors.

"We aim to fill this gap through creating 'health outcomes indices' (HOIs)," explains Parasidis. "By accurately tracking patient outcomes over time, HOIs provide health care stakeholders with a valuable tool with which to measure, assess and predict health outcomes."

According to Parasidis, creating HOIs is dependent on a three-phase framework by which multiple data sources 'real world' patient data, key drivers of patient outcomes, and identification of outcome variables are analyzed to judge the impact of new therapies and justify the allocation of health care dollars.

"Paramount to the long-term fiscal challenges [of health care] is how to manage rising costs without adversely affecting health outcomes," note the authors. "The HOI model seeks to fill this gap by providing stakeholders with a valuable tool to measure, compare and predict health outcomes."
