As Australia's first centre dedicated to applying business and economic insights to healthcare, the Centre for Business and Economics for Health (CBEH) is uniquely positioned to apply its academic knowledge and expertise to identify, assess and encourage opportunities to improve health in Australia and internationally. The center aims to contribute to a forward-looking and empowered health system that responds to tomorrow's care needs, rather than passively imitating yesterday's service use.
CBEH leverages ideas, expertise, and resources from academia, government, and industry to help improve healthcare delivery and population health outcomes. Researchers acquire and analyze comprehensive data to provide solutions to industry and societal challenges in the healthcare industry. Researchers focus on local issues to meet the aspirations of Queenslanders to achieve health, while remaining committed to building national relationships and a global image for wider impact.
CBEH is committed to translating research into policy and practice, with an impact on economic and social outcomes and health. The success of the Centre's findings is evidenced by citations from countries and institutions. CBEH staff, students, alumni and partners benefit from its strong global reputation for research, impact and engagement.
In the field of healthcare research, the Center for Health Business and Economics (CBEH) applies research and evaluation of health technologies, procedures, and interventions to treat and prevent health. Its benefits include integrating economic analysis into clinical trials and decision analysis modeling. Researchers conduct economic and statistical analysis of observational, experimental, and retrospective data sets and are motivated to find effective ways to innovate to address broader social and cultural determinants of health. CBEH researchers provide Australian government and international agencies with high-quality evidence to inform decisions about the development and launch of new drugs and technologies.
