Patient-reported health-related quality-of-life (HRQoL) measures such as the EuroQol 5 dimension (EQ-5D) index are commonplace when assessing healthcare providers or efficiency of medical techniques. HRQoL measures are generally bounded, and the magnitude of possible improvement depends on the pre-treatment HRQoL value. This paper aimed to assess and illustrated the possibility of modelling the relationship between pre- and post-treatment HRQoL measures with piecewise linear splines.
