Based on rigorously designed research methods, HEOR focuses on understanding the economic and clinical health outcomes consequences of therapeutic interventions and of specific treatment decisions.
Our clients are pharmaceutical manufacturers, medical device manufacturers, and consumer and provider-facing digital health organizations. In addition, we routinely collaborate with health plans, employers, and health systems, embedding sponsored HEOR studies within their systems.
Our clients must make daily decisions as to how to position, pay for, or recommend therapeutic options to their clients or patients, and require data, often from our collaborators, to make the most informed, thoughtful, cost-effective, and clinically beneficial decisions.
By partnering with our clients, Health Analytics is able to conduct research that translates data into strategic guidance and actionable business intelligence, as well as evidence to support clinical decisions and insights.
The best candidates for work in the field of Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) have a PhD degree (or equivalence) in Public Health, Statistics, Health Services Research, Economics, Epidemiology, Health Policy, and an excellent track record demonstrating research and quantitative expertise.
In the current environment, individuals who obtain a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree also make excellent candidates for fellowships and associate level positions within HEOR.
