The Center for Health Outcomes and PharmacoEconomic Research (the HOPE Center) assesses healthcare interventions from a clinical, economic and humanistic view. Established in 1986 by J. Lyle Bootman, the center collaborates with researchers, academic institutions, healthcare organizations and pharmaceutical firms worldwide. The center is now led by Director Ivo Abraham. Research focuses include cost-effectiveness analysis, quality-of-life assessment, pharmaceutical policy analysis and drug-use evaluation.
The mission of the center is to conduct quality research, disseminate information and provide training and service programs to enhance the application of economic and effectiveness measures to the practice of health care and the management of health systems.
The vision of the center is to become a premier source of information, training and collaborative research in assessing the effectiveness of healthcare interventions.
