Health Economics Information Resources: A Self-Study Course

What is Health Economics?

Health Economics incorporates the thinking of additional disciplines both within the health field and beyond.

If we look beyond health, we must incorporate pure economics, finance and insurance, industrial organization, labor economics , public policy (and finance), sociology, and statistical methods into our thinking.

Within the health arena, the disciplines of health services research, medicine, medical ethics, psychology and public health / epidemiology must be considered when considering health economics.
