I have been working at Stockholm Centre for Health Economics at Region Stockholm since August 2020 and I am affiliated with LIME at KI.
At Stockholm Centre for Health Economics, I have the roles of deputy director and coordinator for the unit's work with health economic evaluations. A large part of our work is about conducting health economic evaluations of interventions included in the person-centered and integrated care pathways developed by the National Program Areas that Region Stockholm Gotland hosts within the National System for Knowledge Management. We also conduct health economic evaluations of various other interventions that are of interest to Region Stockholm.
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 (PROMs) at QRC Stockholm. I am currently a board member of the Swedish Association for Health Economics (SHEA).
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).
