YHEC offers a range of reviewing services from scoping reviews and rapid evidence reviews, through to systematic reviews and indirect/mixed treatment comparisons.

YHEC undertake systematic reviews for a variety of purposes:

  • To review effects, adverse effects, cost-effectiveness and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) evidence to inform Single Technology Appraisals (STA) for NICE and submissions to other agencies;
  • To identify gaps in research;
  • To inform the development of economic models;
  • To summarise health-related quality of life.


Indirect or mixed treatment comparisons

In collaboration with our partners at Quantics Consulting, we also undertake indirect or mixed treatment comparisons, allowing effectiveness data to be generated for different treatment where head-to-head data are not necessarily available.
