HEQ (Health Economics Questionnaire) COVID-19

Simon, Judit; Mayer, Susanne;
Open Access
The original Health Economics Questionnaire (HEQ) is a comprehensive patient self-completed health economics questionnaire measuring health and social care resource use, medication, absenteeism from work and presenteeism, other productivity impacts as well as socio-demographic background information. It was developed in 2016 based on several years of international experience with within-trial (mental health) economic evaluations and originally implemented in the multi-country European PreDicT study. To allow for resource-use measurement in times of pandemics, the original Health Economics Questionnaire (HEQ) has been updated and complemented with a COVID-19 resource-use measurement module (Module 7) in 2020. The HEQ COVID-19 now both reflects the changed service provision landscape and having direct information on any COVID-19 related service use. In Module 7, a set of new questions have been added to capture further information about COVID-19 infections, self-isolation and related changes in health services use and employment status, with the purpose of understanding what resource use can be directly attributed to the on-going COVID-19 public health crisis rather than the investigated trial treatment or mental illness. The HEQ Covid-19 has been implemented in the UK-based PAX-BD and PAX-D studies. Currently it is available in two languages: English, German.
