Health Economics Network
To ensure that all reports incorporate the most up-to-date methods and best practices in health economics, ICER collaborates with an academic network of experts, leveraging their expertise to support ICER’s work in assessing drugs and other interventions. Currently, ICER’s health economics partners include:
The University of Colorado’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences’ Center for Pharmaceutical Outcomes Research (CePOR)
The major goal of CePOR is to promote training and interdisciplinary research collaborations in the areas of pharmacoeconomics, health services and systems research, drug policy, health benefits design, pharmacoepidemiology, and drug safety.
The University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy’s Center for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomic Research (CPR)
The goal of the Center is to advance understanding of the impact of pharmacy and health care services, products, and policy by conducting research in pharmacoeconomics, pharmacoepidemiology, and patient-centered outcomes; translating and disseminating research; and educating, training, and mentoring researchers.
The University of Washington School of Pharmacy’s Comparative Health Outcomes, Policy, and Economics (CHOICE) Institute
The CHOICE Institute conducts research and provides graduate and external training in health outcomes and policy research on health care technologies, with a focus on drugs, diagnostics, and devices. The overall goal of the program is to generate evidence that improves health care decisions for patients, clinicians, payers, industry and government organizations. The CHOICE Institute is a nationally and internationally recognized center for pharmaceutical economics, drug safety, and pharmaceutical policy research.
