Thank you to Dr. Daniel Tomaszewski and the University of Southern California’s Health Care Decision Analysis (HCDA) program for brining me in as a guest speaker this weekend. I truly enjoyed my time with the students.
As they posted on LinkedIn:
Thanks to guest speaker Jason Shafrin of FTI Consulting, for joining us in the Health Economics and Methodology (HCDA 520) course.
“The Quality Adjusted Life methodology is a way to quantitatively estimate the health benefits of the different treatments and compare the improvements across diseases,” says Jason. “Understanding the resulting economic value can inform how the government, insurance companies, biotech companies, and other interested parties make decisions on policies influencing treatment access, pricing, and other important factors.”
