Research theme: Health economics and data

Network of people

The health economics and data theme provides support across all of our research themes, to make better use of research advances and interventions.

We are co-producing timely research on local and national priorities to benefit patients, the public, the NHS, wider public sector, and UK economy by: evaluating economic impacts and value for money of interventions that are developed in the ARC North Thames; and developing new applied research methods to interrogate health data in valid, informative ways (including the linking of data).

In order to achieve this. we have assembled a community of key researchers with internationally-recognised expertise in health economics, statistics, data linkage, evidence synthesis, operational research, digital technologies, epidemiology, informatics, computer science, health care engineering, geography, built environment and citizen science.
