As global healthcare expenditures continue to rise, public and private health systems are under pressure to reduce costs and improve operational efficiencies through rigorous financial management.
The Modelling Cost-Effectiveness in Healthcare online certificate course will equip you with the tools to design, analyse, and interpret cost-effectiveness models in your context. Designed by faculty from the Department of Health Policy at LSE, this technical course will teach you to conceptualise a model, inform resource allocation decisions, and analyse a cost-effectiveness study. The Department’s world-class faculty bring unparalleled policy experience, and theoretical and methodological approaches to their work. With insight into this expertise, you’ll learn how to apply a discretely integrated condition event (DICE) simulation, and examine how it can be used as an alternative approach to typical health economics procedures.
Over eight weeks, you’ll explore key modelling techniques and discover how to source quality data to input into a variety of models. With guidance from LSE thought leaders, you’ll examine economic theory that provides a landscape in which modelling techniques can be applied and gain practical skills in cost-effectiveness modelling.
