Recently, Hannah Baker (Consultant – Health Economics, Mtech Access) gave a lecture to members of the Royal Society of Biology – Wessex Branch, exploring the fundamental concepts of economic evaluation in healthcare. Hannah was invited to share her extensive experience of working on economic modelling projects for a wide range of life sciences companies.
In her talk, Hannah outlined the role that economics plays in modern healthcare. She explored:
- How the NHS allocates its finite resources to deliver effective care
- How societal preferences are accounted for
- Whether it is ‘right’ that a year of life is given a monetary value
