Haitham Tuffaha

I am the Interim Director at The University of Queensland’s Centre for the Business and Economics of Health (CBEH). I also lead Health Technology Assessment for the Centre, which involves evaluating submissions made to the Australian Government to reimburse new medicines and medical devices through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) and the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS). My research is focused on the economic evaluation of health interventions to inform decision making and promote value-based health care. I have pioneered the application of Value of Information analysis in Australia to enhance the efficiency of clinical trials and maximise the return on investment from medical research. I chair the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR)-Oncology Group, and I am the past chair of the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia’s (COSA)-Epidemiology Group and the Australian Clinical Trials Alliance (ACTA)-Research Prioritisation Group. I am an Associate Editor for Value in Health, and an Editorial Board Member of Medical Decision Making Journal.
