Using QALYs Weights

After you have specified your incidence and valuation pooling options, you can select QALYs

and pooling options. By default, the Skip QALY Weights box is checked in the Select

Valuation Methods, Pooling, and Aggregation window. This is done to save time, as it takes

BenMAP a few moments to load the QALY datafiles. If you want to use QALY weights, then

uncheck this box, and then click Next.

The Select QALY Methods, Pooling and Aggregation window appears after you click Next

on the Select Valuation Methods, Pooling and Aggregation window. This window should

look quite similar to the Incidence Pooling and Aggregation and Select Valuation Methods,

Pooling and Aggregation windows, with tree views on the left side representing the valuation

databases available, and various pooling windows on the right side representing the selected

valuations and pooling options.

There will be one pooling window in the Select QALY Methods, Pooling, and Aggregation

screen for each pooling window Incidence Pooling and Aggregation screen. In each pooling

window, there will be one result present for each incidence result left over after all incidence

pooling has occurred. Each of these results will be represented by a “-- Select --” value in the

QALY Method column.

Aggregation, Pooling, and Valuation

BenMAP User's Manual 187 October 2012

As with the Select Valuation Methods, Pooling, and Aggregation window, the columns

present in the Select QALY Methods, Pooling, and Aggregation window are determined by

the incidence results left after all incidence pooling has occurred. There will be exactly enough

columns in each pooling window to represent the “least” pooled incidence result. That is, the

columns will be in the same order they were in the Incidence Pooling and Aggregation

window, but the only columns present will be those up to the level of the pooled incidence result

with the most columns left over after all pooling has occurred. Here is an example:

 

n351 - n352 - n353 - n354 - n355 - n356 - n357 - n358 - n359 - n360 - n361 - n362 - n363 - n364 - n365 - n366 - n367 - n368 - n369 - n370 - n371 - n372 - n373 - n374 - n375 - n376 - n377 - n378 - n379 - n380 - n381 - n382 - n383 - n384 - n385 - n386 - n387 - n388 - n389 - n390 - n391 - n392 - n393 - n394 - n395 - n396 - n397 - n398 - n399 - n400
