ScHARRHUD is an innovative database aimed at improving access to health utilities evidence.

ScHARRHUD was instigated and is managed by the Information Resources Group (IRG) at ScHARR, the School of Health and Related Research, University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom. It forms part of the work programmes of IRG and the Health Economics and Decision Science (HEDS) section at ScHARR.

ScHARRHUD is a free, searchable web-based resource. The database holds bibliographic details of studies reporting health state utility values (HSUVs). In addition ScHARRHUD is searchable by the names of health state valuation instruments used in each study. In providing this level of indexing, ScHARRHUD aims to make the retrieval of health utilities evidence both more efficient and effective. Whilst the focus of ScHARRHUD is on generic, preference-based measures, such as the EQ-5D, the database extracts and indexes the names of all instruments used in studies.

A pilot version of the ScHARRHUD was developed using start-up funding from the NIHR (National Institute for Health Research) Research Design Service Yorkshire and the Humber (R DS YH). We are now pleased to introduce the publicly accessible beta version ScHARRHUD.
