2014 Annual Health Econometrics Workshop
The AHEW provides a forum to discuss the use of econometric and other quantitative methods to address issues in health economics and policy, health services research, and outcomes research. It is the first meeting of its kind in North America and facilitates the exchange of ideas among the growing number of health econometricians in the United States and Canada.
The format of the workshop follows the traditional structure of the American Health Economics Conference (AHEC), National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) Conferences, and the European Workshops on Econometrics and Health Economics where an entire hour is devoted to each paper. Unlike the traditional format, however, the discussant presents the paper, followed by the author’s rebuttal and open discussion.
The 2014 AHEW was hosted by the Canadian Centre for Health Economics and held at the University of Toronto.
Funding and other resources were provided by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Pfizer Inc., the Canadian Centre for Health Economics at the University of Toronto, the Institute for Health Policy, Management, And Evaluation at the University of Toronto, and the University of Washington School of Public Health.
