Patient centered HTA

To bridge the gap between scientific evidence and stakeholders based on the judgment of health professionals, the views of patients and the public, and the needs of policymakers.

In our multidisciplinary team, we apply statistical, epidemiological, economic, psychometric and other key methods to evaluate the health benefits of healthcare interventions and medical treatments. Our studies often focus on cost–effectiveness analyses, and we frequently use computer simulations to combine evidence and extrapolate observed short-term disease effects to meaningful long-term outcome measures. Models created at the patient level also help us support the evaluation of personalized treatment strategies. We have special expertise in the development of generic health-outcome measures (health-related quality of life, health status) and disease- and domain -specific health-outcome measures. Modern measurement methods are applied and new measurement methods are developed.
