Our goal is to support healthcare systems, at both national and international level, by proposing innovative solutions on funding, staffing and performance. Our research covers three macro-areas: disease management, medical technology financing and health technology assessment.
Issues around day-to-day health conditions, including causes, treatments and prevention, are the focus of our work: from increasing obesity rates to dietary changes, the management of long-term conditions, and current practices around the early regulatory approval of new drugs. Additionally, we focus on the application of new technologies to improve issues affecting public health. For example, how can we use smartphone-based technology to reduce hospital waiting times? And how can the use of big data increase success rates in medical diagnosis?
In recent years, we have done research on how different pharmaceutical pricing and reimbursement regulations translate into more positive or more negative outcomes for the healthcare system overall. Another project has focused on the variation in management approaches of Multiple Sclerosis, which led to identifying the potential socio-economic and personal benefits of a paradigm shift in the management of the disease since the first diagnosis.
Who we work with..
We work closely with LSE academics in relevant school departments and units, such as LSE Health, LSE’s Medical Technology Research Group (MTRG), the Personal Social Services Research Unit (PSSRU), and the Department of Social Policy. We also work with large number of external collaborators to deliver our projects.
