Program Lead – Hospital Services
Hannah is a health economist with a background in applied economics. She has worked across clinical trials and health services research projects spanning across a range of clinical areas including cancer, diabetes, end of life and paediatric conditions. She has expertise in cost-effectiveness analysis and economic modelling. in 2023, Hannah was awarded a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) investigator grant for a project that seeks high-value models of end-of-life care.
Hannah’s current research is focussed on embedding economic evaluation within health services research projects to help identify efficient and effective ways to improve patient experiences and outcomes when accessing health care. She is particularly interested in the ways in which health systems can become better integrated across primary care and hospital-based systems. Other key areas of interest include: improving health services delivered to people nearing the end of life; evaluating virtual models of health care; understanding the economics of implementation; estimating the productivity related costs of illness; and using discrete choice experiments to better understand preferences for health service delivery.
