Background . Algorithms for converting descriptive measures of health status into quality-adjusted life year (QALY)—weights are now widely available, and their application in economic evaluation is increasingly commonplace. The objective of this study is to describe and compare existing conversion algorithms and to highlight issues bearing on the derivation and interpretation of the QALY-weights so obtained. Methods . Systematic review of algorithms for converting descriptive measures of health… Expand
