William Hall is a Health Economics PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia and a Research Associate with the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation. He is passionate about the cross-implementation of advances in economics, technology, and business management fields to healthcare systems.
William has led projects investigating ‘Lean’ applications in healthcare, the use of mobile platforms to improve delivery of care in hospitals, and priority setting and resource allocation processes in local government. As part of his Master’s of Science in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC (November 2013), William created a tool to evaluate priority setting and resource allocation processes that has subsequently been implemented in one European and two North American healthcare organizations. An interactive online version of the tool is available at: http://health.rapat.org/
As a health economist, William is actively involved in assisting clinicians and decisions makers with conducting high quality economic impact assessments using cost benefit, cost effectiveness, and cost utility analyses. He has experience in both trial based and modeling methodology, and his experience spans multiple clinical areas from home health to neurology.
His current PhD project is focused on developing tools to assist decisions makers in making evidence-informed decisions in Home Health. Ultimately, he will create an economic health system markov model that will facilitate the determination of appropriate spend and/or resource allocation to Home Health via cost avoidance offsets in Acute and Residential care.
