At the ICHOM conference in Rotterdam in May 2019 ICHOM and Humana partnered together to discuss “Healthy Days”. Healthy Days was developed in the 1990s by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States. The population health tool measures the Unhealthy Days of individuals by asking them how many days their physical and mental wellbeing was poor over the previous month.
The discussions at the ICHOM conference represented perhaps one of the first public discussions of the possibility of having one, universal health-related quality of life measure used globally. The outcome was unanimous –every delegate and member expressed being dedicated to improving population health in their respective countries as well as globally.
