This paper introduces a maximum likelihood estimation model that uses patients' pretherapy characteristics to determine the weighting components of multipe outcomes of quality health. The resulting "health quality index" can then be included in cost-effectiveness analyses to compare alternative treatment plans. A Monte Carlo simulation is performed to test the model's robustness and power.
