Our research informs policy and practice by taking a distinctive user-engagement approach — developing knowledge within the context of its use and with an international perspective. With a focus on Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia, we operate across disciplinary boundaries working with high level policy-makers, managers, administrators, clinicians, and the industrial supply chain, to develop strategic policy, implement new approaches and improve existing operational models.
We use analytical methods from health economics, technology and innovation management, organisational behaviour and management information systems. Our research balances action and other qualitative research with the analysis of large scale quantitative data sets and learning through partnerships with the healthcare supply chain and government.
We focus on three main areas:
- Health system regulation, payment and incentivisation
- Innovation and organisational change across the healthcare supply chain
- Economic and social determinants of health and quality of life
