Our Research

As well as contributing to new knowledge about key issues in healthcare delivery, 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 perspectives. 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.

Our research uses analytical methods from health economics, technology and innovation management, organisational behaviour and management information systems. We balance 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.
