University-Led Health Economics Research Partnerships

Economic analysis, especially in reflection of the current funding climate, has become a critical way to describe the cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit, and/or cost-efficiency of new innovations, and it contributes to value propositions for real-world application. Including an applied health economics research component in grant applications can increase the likelihood of grant application approvals. For example, economic evaluations are increasingly becoming a requirement for certain Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) funding streams, as well as Networks of Centres of Excellence and Genome Canada programs.

With our academic partners, we conduct leading-edge, rigorous primary health economics research that is often published in high impact, peer-reviewed academic publications. We offer a responsive health economics service for academics applying for research funds that require economic evaluations. Additionally, as a non-profit organization, we have the ability to receive external grant and partnership funds from the public and private sectors, which can leverage investments in support of provincial and pan-Canadian priorities and help increase success in securing grant funding.
