Health economics Expertise and services

Considerable advances have been made in the area of healthcare technology over the past decades. Just think of imaging or minimally invasive surgical devices, next generation sequencing, and drugs. These technologies have contributed significantly to a further increase of healthcare costs. At the same time, governments have been reluctant in allocating greater portions of their gross domestic product to healthcare. To achieve cost containment in an era of rapid technological change is an enormous challenge.

Health economics aims to delineate the individual and population health consequences of allocating resources to various health programs and technologies. The results of this type of analyses may be used by decision makers to optimize health outcomes under resource constraints.

Areas of expertise

Within the Radboud Technology Center Health Economics, experts in this area from various departments collaborate to face the challenges posed by rapid technological change under resource constraints.

Our expertise include:
  • Healthcare Technology Assessment (HTA)
  • health economic modeling
  • cost-effectiveness analysis
  • budget impact analysis
  • quality of care research
  • quality of life research
  • (comparative) health system design and evaluation
  • value-based healthcare
  • value-based pricing
  • Program Budgeting and Marginal Analysis
  • multi criteria decision analysis
Results of these analyses can help decision makers within and outside Radboudumc to make choices regarding the development and use of healthcare technologies.
