ScHARR will also estimate mapping functions that use HONOS data to predict utility values for Recovering Quality of Life (ReQoL), a Patient Reported Outcome Measure developed to assess the quality of life of people with different mental health conditions. The project team will then be able to produce a cost-effectiveness plane for mental health trusts to identify high-quality, low-cost providers and further examine organisational factors that are associated with cost-effectiveness. The project team hope to then estimate how resources can be reallocated to activities where they are more cost-effective, and what input-mix (e.g. capital, labour) might be associated with improved cost-effectiveness.
