Economics is concerned with maximising the value of scarce resources, aiming to improve decisions that influence the allocation of resources. Governments and publicly funded institutions (such as public hospitals) make a lot of those decisions. As a health economist, my primary objective is to support governments and health service organisations make more informed decisions in order to minimise the opportunity costs of spending on health care.
