Health Economics Group

The group focuses on studies which include: health production functions and lifestyle decisions; the impact of substance abuse and mental health on productivity; economic evaluation applied to substance abuse and to eye disease; demand of health insurance and topics of industrial organisation applied to the demand for health care; measuring mental health service utility and the costs associated with adverse events; the English national health system and health system reforms; value for money in health care, providers' response to financial incentives, patient choice and competition in health care markets and equity. The group has begun new project on comparative health economics between the UK and Germany where outcomes in relation to costs are considered.

Group publications have included work on the costs associated with the prevention of incidents in mental health care; measuring the cost effectiveness of different professional groups in the care of the frail elderly; measuring resource use; decision making and cost effectiveness in advance directives in mental health; performance of health care providers and their response to policy incentives using econometric analysis.
