Health Economics (UK) - Making best use of finite resources

Presented by

Iain Crossley, HFMA Qualifications Tutor, HBSS. Chaired by Sarah Day, Policy & Research Manager, HFMA

About this talk

The Webinar introduces you to health economics and how to apply the concepts to organisational decision-making, help shape the delivery of better health care and improve health outcomes in the NHS. Health economics provides insights into how to improve healthcare and decide on the relative merits of alternative treatments and ways of providing healthcare within finite resources. Although you may not be directly involved in health economics-based decision-making, it is helpful to understand how the concepts relate to the planning of health services. We examine the problems and pitfalls which arise as you develop business cases to improve health outcomes and increase public value. By the end of the interactive session, you will be more aware of the complex issues you encounter as you start to widen your perspective and think a little more like a health economist.
