Marc Koopmanschap (1961) is associate professor of Health Economics at the Institute of Health Policy and Management and Institute for Medical Technology Assessment (PhD thesis in 1994). His main research fields are the following: the relationship between results of economic evaluation studies and health policy, in particular drug reimbursement (Top Institute Pharma Escher project); use of HTA-studies and other considerations in international drug reimbursement policy, research on criteria (including uncertainty) on drug reimbursement in Europe (MCDA). Costs and benefits of examples of extra safety regulation of several drugs (QT studies and PSURs).
He analysed the relationship between health, ageing, medical consumption and informal care in the Netspar study "living longer in good health" and follow up projects. He is intensively involved in stated preference analysis (Discrete Choice Experiments) for several target groups, such as informal caregivers and care receivers as well as policy makers in health care who are involved in drug reimbursement and market authorization of new innovative medicines. He improved the methodology of economic evaluation of health care, regarding the measurement and valuation of productivity costs in economic evaluation of health care (friction cost method, development of PRODISQ and PCQ questionnaires) and the measurement and valuation of informal care. He performed many economic evaluation studies of health care programs (or guidelines) related to cancer (screening and therapy, breast and cervical cancer), stroke (guidelines/services), diabetes, eye care, locomotor disease such as low back pain, knee/hip-arthrosis and integrated care for fragile elderly. He also coordinates and teaches in the BMG bachelor and HEPL master program (for example the course HTA).
