Thursday 7 April 2011, 2.00PM to 3.15pm
Speaker: Hugh Gravelle, Professor of Economics, Centre for Health Economics, University of York
Abstract: In this talk I will review the state of health economics, organising my discussion loosely around the eight categories in the Alan Williams plumbing diagram (determinants of health; measurement and valuation of health; economic evaluation of treatment; demand for insurance and healthcare; supply of healthcare; market equilibrium and rationing; system evaluation; planning, budgeting and monitoring). Stressing the need for explicit modelling, I will describe the achievements and weaknesses of health economics in these areas, and suggest some challenges for future work.
