Our Team

OHE's exceptional team is highly skilled in the economics and statistics of health care provision and financing, the pricing and regulation of pharmaceuticals, and health technology assessment (HTA).

Our experts have joined us from the public sector, the life sciences industries, consultancies and academia. They have been recruited from the UK and abroad, including from elsewhere in Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America. Supplementing our in-house expertise is an extensive global network of health policy, economic and statistical experts.

We require our economists and statisticians to remain at the forefront of their fields, consistently supporting their efforts to do so. All of our research and consultancy team members publish research, present at conferences and participate in seminars regularly. This keeps current the knowledge upon which our research and consulting services are based and ensures that our analyses are both scientifically robust and insightful, thus providing the best value possible to our clients.
