basel center for health economics

As a joint Center of the Faculties of Economics, Science and Medicine at the University of Basel our goal is to contribute to current and future health system challenges through a multi-disciplinary approach. The bche combines expertise from economics, medicine as well as related behavioral and social sciences to study the behavior of individuals, populations and markets and to develop and test new programs and interventions designed to improve current systems. Through state-of-the-art research we hope to contribute not only towards achieving more efficient health systems but also to contribute towards achieving improved health outcomes at the local, regional and global level.

 

The executive director’s vision

Theory is indispensable to understand the health care sector and empirical research is needed to challenge the theoretical predictions. At the bche we try to go full circle.

I’m excited to be the director of this new center,
Stefan Felder
