CHP PhD Completion: June 8th – Health economics and chronic disease, with a specific focus on diabetes

Presenter: Xinyang Hua

Chronic disease brings heavy epidemiological and economic burden on both individual and national level. This research focuses on chronic disease, especially diabetes, from a health economics perspective. It covers six individual studies which can be divided into three main parts:
• cost analysis–which separately focuses on out-of-pocket expenditure for patients and price trend of prescription medications,
• risk prediction on long-term health outcomes–with a specific focus on regional/population differences on the predictions,
• the use of simulation modelling–with one systematic review on existing model-based economics evaluations for diabetes, and a self-built Asian diabetes model which incorporate quality of life as a novel predictor.

This research applies a wide range of health economics methods and endeavors to fill in some of the gaps in existing research and provide new evidence and practical tools for chronic disease.
