Economic evaluation is a key area of research at the School and faculty members are engaged in the evaluation of prevention and chronic disease management programs, technology assessment, and cost-effectiveness analyses. Economic analysis is now an important component in any research project or program testing new drugs, technologies and health care interventions, and several faculty members have the expertise to conduct externally-funded research in these areas. The long-term vision is that this investment will lead to the establishment of a new Center to coordinate health economics research at the HSC that could support cost-effectiveness analysis and comparative effectiveness research. The addition of the School of Pharmacy should create new opportunities in the area of pharmaco-economics.
