WoundExpert® Data Analytics
Market research and ongoing clinical studies can be costly and time-consuming. Net Health has been capturing patient and wound data since 2001. Data collected on more than 3 million wound assessments from Net Health’s WoundExpert® Research Database will give you valuable insight into the behavior of the wound care market and critical information you need for your Health Economics & Outcomes Research.
What is Health Economics & Outcomes Research (HEOR)?
Health Economics analyzes the economic aspects of health and healthcare, with a focus on the costs (inputs) and consequences (outcomes) of healthcare interventions. Outcomes Research evaluates the effect of healthcare interventions on patient-related clinical, humanistic, and economic outcomes.
The heat is on payers to identify which brands offer the best value in wound care, and many key decision makers turn to Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) to help them pick the winners and the losers.
