Basel Center for Health Economics

"No understanding of the health care sector without theory. Empirical research is needed to challenge the theoretical predictions. At BCHE we go full circle."
Stefan Felder, BCHE director

The new Basel Center for Health Economics brings together experts in economics and medicine to conduct innovative research and teaching on pressing issues facing the health care sector today.

The center will focus on a wide range of topics, including the economics of health insurance, and of disease prevention and treatment, the allocation of health care resources, and the impact of health policies on patients and populations.

A key goal of BCHE is to bridge the gap between academia and the real world. Through partnerships with industry, providers of health care, health insurers and government, the center will aim to make its research and insights directly applicable to the challenges facing health care professionals and policymakers.

We believe that the unique combination of medical and economic expertise at BCHE will lead to relevant advances in the field and contribute to an improvement of health systems.
