New ScHARRHUD Database launches!

 On the 4th November The Information Resources team launched an innovative new bibliographic database - ScHARRHUD.

ScHARRHUD (Health Utilities Database) provides details of studies containing health state utility values (HSUVs). Whilst the focus is on generic, preference-based measures, such as the EQ-5D, the database extracts and indexes the names of all instruments used in studies.

ScHARRHUD was instigated by the ScHARR Information Resources Group. A pilot version of the database was developed using start-up funding from the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS). ScHARRHUD  is a free, searchable, web-based resource and can be found at www.scharrhud.org

The launch took place at the ISPOR (International Society of Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes  Research) conference in Dublin and we were delighted with the response we received from visitors to our Stand in the exhibition. 

If you would like to keep up with the latest developments on ScHARRHUD you can follow us on Twitter (@ScHARRHUD) or register your interest by email at scharrhud@shef.ac.uk.
