About me

I am a PhD student at the department of Learning Informatics Mangement and Ethics (LIME) at Karolinska Institutet. I am part of the clinical management research group at LIME's Medical Management Center (MMC). 

My research interests lie within the fields of health economics, clinical care delivery management, and health policy. I am currently applying an innovative cost-accounting approach to cost clincial processes at hospitals. I am interested in collaborating with healthcare professionals, patients, companies, and stakeholders interested in empirically developing evidence to better support healthcare managment and policy decisions and practice.

Research description

I am responsible for a project that explores how to best account for costs in a clinical setting for patients with multiple chronic conditions. My research is important because it aims to accurately inform value capture, in terms of outcomes and costs, at the level of the  patient's condition. An accurate estimation of value may allow for value-based comparisons of care processes across patients, wards, organizations, and time. Such comparisons faciliate evidence-based decisions for payers and providers, specifically in regards to reimbursement, purchasing, and care delivery.

The title of my thesis is: The cost component of value of multidisciplinary collaboration in health care? Accounting for the cost of a person-centered integrated care unit for patients with cardiovascular disease, renal dysfunction and diabetes.
