CAHE researchers are committed to driving safe, effective and efficient healthcare solutions that are responsive to consumer needs globally.
The nature of health economics is significant in that it contributes to multiple disciplines, such as measurement of health outcomes, program evaluation, cost-effectiveness analysis, welfare economics and the theory of incomplete markets.
We aim to further develop and apply health economics methods to identify innovative interventions that provide greater health benefits at reasonable cost and contribute to knowledge through improved health economics methodologies. Our research has significantly enhanced the health and well-being of people both locally and globally. We will address measurement issues related to improving the patient experience and the patient’s health outcomes, preferences in health care, engaging the public in health policy decision-making and the value of health and well-being.
Clinical epidemiology, biostatistics and data analytics
Clinical Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Data Analytics concerns the design, data management, and analysis of health research studies. It is essential that health research involving human participants is conducted to the highest possible standards, and all modern research involving human participants relies on appropriate study design and statistical methods to provide the highest quality evidence.
As a consequence our work is fundamentally important across clinical, public health, and health service research areas. CAHE staff lead their own methodological and applied research to develop and strengthen methods that inform modern health research, as well as collaborating with a wide range of clinical and biomedical investigators within Griffith University and Gold Coast University Hospital.
