The following table gives the cost, increase in life years, and the rating of quality of life for four different treatments.

 Table 5.1 Treatment Cost Increase in Life Years Rating of Quality of Life QALY Cost:QALY A 4,600 16 0.16 B 8,600 18 0.22 C 12,600 22 0.28 D 10,000 20 0.25

Instructions

Use the Assignment 5.1 Document (Word) to record your responses.

1. Calculate the QALY for each treatment.
2. Interpret each QALY calculated.
3. Calculate the Cost:QALY ratio for each treatment.
4. Interpret each ratio.
5. Based on QALY only, which treatment would be most effective?
6. Based on cost:QALY, which treatment would be most effective?

 Treatment Cost Increase in life years Rating of quality of life QALY Cost:QALY A 4600 16 0.16 2.56 1796.875 B 8600 18 0.22 3.96 2171.717 C 12600 22 0.28 6.16 2045.455 D 10000 20 0.25 5 2000

QALY = increase in life years* rating of quality of life

Cost:QALY = Cost/QALY

QALYs to measure the health benefits delivered by various treatment regimens.

So treatment C has high QALY 6.16 so treatment C is better.

But if we see at Cost:QALY,then treatment A should preferred since it have least value.
