    Quality-adjusted life year (QALY) is used to calculate the money used in any medical intervention. Also, it checks the way one is living his life either in a full healthy state or in some trouble like someone is blind or is deaf. A year of life lived in perfect health is equal to 1 QALY i.e. 1 Year of Life × 1 Utility value = 1 QALY and that a year of life lived in a state of less than a perfect health is worth less than 1 QALY. source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quality-adjusted_life_year
