About Us

Our mission is to provide the analyses, evidence and economic expertise to build a better and more sustainable health care system.

To achieve our mission, we combine state-of-the-art analytic methods, a variety of data sources, and innovative approaches to data visualization and communication. We value methodological rigor, scientific objectivity, and collaborative partnerships.

Our team includes faculty members with PhDs in economics and statistics, and a research staff with diverse academic backgrounds and experience. Our work is defined by three distinct but related focus areas:

  • Academic Research led by CHSE investigators or in partnership with other investigators, with a track record of publication in prominent peer-reviewed journals.
  • Policy Research delivering clear and actionable evidence and recommendations for health care policymakers at the local, state, and national levels.
  • Clinical Analytics to improve patient care and efficiency within the OHSU Health System in partnership with physicians and hospital executives.
