How can licenses for the Health Measures be obtained?

Available measures are copyrighted and are available on a license basis.

There are three forms of license:

  • A license is available free of charge for all non-commercial applications including work funded by research councils, Government agencies and charities.
  • For commercial applications there will be a per study license (e.g. clinical trial), though an open license for a fixed period is available.
  • The SF-6D measure is being used in software available from Quality Metric. (

Income generated from the charges will go into a University based research fund.
