Designing and managing effective and efficient healthcare systems
This 1-day workshop on Health Systems Modelling with Professor Margaret Brandeau (Stanford University), supported by Healthier Lives and hosted by the University of Auckland, looked at how analytic and computational tools – and, more generally, an analytic way of thinking – can be used to support the design and management of effective and efficient healthcare systems. Professor Brandeau also gave a lunchtime seminar on Evidence Matters in Wellington, on 5 December at the Ministry of Social Development which was hosted in association with Healthier Lives and the Virtual Health Information Network.
Professor Brandeau was in New Zealand courtesy of the University of Auckland Distinguished Visitor Award. Her research focusses on developing applied mathematical and economic models to support health policy decisions.
