Project Proposal


Title: New methodologies for health technology assessment and the evaluation of policies with an impact on health

Type Details: Besides having been responsible of the economic evaluation within HTA multi-disciplinary teams, the group has contributed to the development of new approaches to the economic evaluation of health care interventions in at least two directions:
1) The extension of the approach to the evaluation of health care interventions beyond standard welfarist approaches, to account also for the impact on 'functioning and capabilities' (Sen, 1985). The skills of the group include not only the theoretical development of such tools, but also its implementation, including the design of questionnaires aimed at the elicitation of the economic value of health and social capabilities.
2) Economic evaluation under uncertainty. Members of the group have contributed to the diffusion of such methods as 'real options' and 'Bayesian sequential sampling', previously developed in other fields, to HTA. The focus of this research was understanding what impact the possibility to acquire more information should have on the decision to adopt a new technology or do more research.

We are interested in joining any project whose aim is the development of new methodologies for health technology assessment, including socio-economic evaluation. One field of particular interest for us is the possibility of developing methods that can bridge the gap between evaluation of health care interventions and other policies which have an impact on health, including social and regulatory policies.
