This research area focuses on methodological issues and practical applications of economic evaluations of clinical, organizational and policy initiatives in healthcare. Economic evaluations are usually conducted in close cooperation with health professionals who have a thorough knowledge of the specific content, the targeted users and the potential effects.
Economic evaluations are based on data obtained from different study designs including randomized controlled trials, cohort and other observational studies and register data. Economic evaluations may also be conducted as model-based studies where the disease course and treatment response are described based on the best available knowledge, and where a mathematical models allow simulation of the long-term gains in health, costs and value.
Most projects on economic evaluation are undertaken in collaboration with health professionals from other hospitals, regions and municipalities, and public and private organizations. Typically, collaboration about economic evaluations requires external funding for the health economics researchers.
