What is QALY?

Quality-adjusted life year (QALY) is an effect measure that combines quality of life and survival. The method is used to measure the overall health gain, i.e. how many good years of life are gained by a new treatment.

When comparing the costs with the effect (QALY), one obtains a cost-effectiveness measure (cost/QALY). The cost-effectiveness demonstrates the cost of a life year gained, in perfect health, for the specific treatment.

The method makes it possible to compare treatments across disease areas, as the effect of all kinds of treatments can be calculated in QALYs. This gives decision makers a basis for prioritisation. The method is internationally accepted as the best possible decision-making fundament for prioritisation in the healthcare system. The Danish Medicines Council has used the method since January 2021.

As part of a pharmaceutical company's application to the Medicines Council for the recommendation of a new drug, the company must calculate the cost effectiveness (cost/QALY).
