Murray D Krahn
My central area of research interest has been the application of decision analysis and economic evaluation to broad questions of health and clinical policy. This methodologic focus has been expressed in a variety of content areas including prostate cancer and viral hepatitis. More recent interests include evaluating the role of disease specific utility assessment, using administrative data to build longitudinal cost models, and evaluating the role of health technology assessment in pharmaceutical reimbursement decisions.
