About me

I have been working since August 2020 at the Center for Health Economics, Informatics and Health Services Research (CHIS) at Stockholm Region and I am affiliated with LIME at KI.

In my position at CHIS, I work as deputy unit manager and coordinator for the unit's work with health economic evaluations. A large part of our work is about producing health economic evaluations of interventions included in the person-centered and integrated care pathways produced by the national program areas that the Stockholm Gotland Region hosts within the National system for knowledge management. We also make health economic evaluations of various interventions that the Stockholm Region needs to decide on.

I have previously worked as a health economist and coordinator for health economics at the Swedish Agency for health technology assessment and assessment of social services (SBU) and as a project manager for a research program focusing on patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) at QRC Stockholm. I am currently a board member of the Swedish Association for Health Economics (SHEA).

Research description

The focus of my research lies in the development and use of different methods to measure and value health and quality of life. Examples of methods or instruments I work with are: disease-specific quality of life instruments, Time Trade-Off (TTO), the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), EQ-5D, and HUI-3. The research within the Vinnvård fellowship will concentrate on large-scale application of health outcome data to inform decision-making in the Swedish health care system. My research also comprises cost-effectiveness analyses of health care interventions, systematic reviews of health economic studies, and evaluation of ethical aspects in Health Technology Assessment (HTA).
