Editorial Reviews


"A balanced and objective in-depth examination. Patrick and Erickson present the state-of-the-art in attempting to meaningfully link quality-of-life (health) measures to the allocation of health care resources. The value of the book lies in its objectively chronicling the successes, failures, and limitations in attempting to measure health-related values for policy making purposes." --Choice

"The health resource allocation strategy provides a ranking mechanism that can be used by policy makers not only at the federal level, but also at the local level. It is appropriate for all agencies making resource allocation decisions-a public health department, a community-based organization providing health care, a large community hospital. Further, anyone wanting to learn cost-utility analysis or needing a primer for calculating a common basis for program comparison could use this book. It is a very thorough, and likely the first, comprehensive treatment of the subject of health care resource allocation using the common metric of cost per healthy life year gained....An important book for the evaluation shelf, one that will reward careful reading, as well as frequent consultation. --Robin D. Gorsky, PhD, University of New Hampshire, Durham, Inquiry

"A well-documented explanation of the Health Resource Allocation Strategy which should interest the intended audience of health decision makers, health services professionals and clinical researchers, and students in public health and the social and clinical sciences....[The authors'] open confrontation of controversial matters-such as limiting freedom of choice, rationing, and methods for putting a dollar value on health programs-and their thoughtful proposal for an approach to a solution for the health care crisis make this book a valuable contribution." --John E. Ware, Jr., PhD, and Susan D. Keller, PhD, American Journal of Preventive Medicine

"This is a wonderful book. It takes the reader past the mechanics of performing economic evaluations, to demonstrating why these evaluations are important. An excellent, well-written book."-- Patrick Mauldin, PhD, Emory University

"A comprehensive assessment of the state of the art in QOL assessment. I haven't seen anything else available with such breadth."--Steven M. Albert, Ph.D., Columbia University

"In conclusion, the authors have achieved a great deal of what they set out to accomplish with this book. Indeed, they have provided a single, excellent reference source for an important family of techniques that have been quite useful in evaluating alternative medical care interventions but the adoption of which--for many reasons--has been perhaps slower in the health policy context than some would prefer."--Medical Decision Making
