Table 2 Suggested factors (range 1.0 – 0.1) for evaluation of the validity [V] of scientific papers and the assessment of type of expected effectiveness [TEE] (range 10.0 – 1.0).

From: The value of health care – a matter of discussion in Germany

Factor Validity Type of expected effectiveness (TEE) × 10 (prevention of ...)
1.00 Not impaired Death
0.99 – 0.90 Almost not impaired with few deficiencies life-threatening event
0.89 – 0.80   considerable impairment
0.79 – 0.70 impaired with deficiencies  
0.69 – 0.60   
0.59 – 0.50 clearly impaired with obvious deficiencies  
0.49 – 0.40   Impairment
0.39 – 0.30 rather impaired with considerable deficiencies  
0.29 – 0.20   
0.19 – 0.10 seriously impaired disturbed well-being
  1. TEE describes the importance of a health-care service preventing either death, disability, or disturbance in well-being under day-to-day conditions. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) describes the foundations of this evaluation.
