13th International Conference on Health Policy Statistics

January 6-8, 2020

The theme for the 13th International Conference on Health Policy Statistics is Leveraging Data to Shape the Future.


The multidisciplinary nature of health services, policy, and outcomes research and the significant reliance on generating evidence in this field have created a major need for effective communication and dissemination of advances in quantitative methodology. Any attempt to disseminate methods should allow for a constructive platform for debate and engage multiple stakeholders in identifying limitations of existing methods from different perspectives so newer methods addressing these shortcomings can be developed.

ICHPS provides a unique forum for discussing research needs and solutions to the methodological challenges in the design of studies and analysis of data for health policy research.

ICHPS’s aim is to create interfaces between practitioners, methodologists, health service researchers, health economists, and policy analysts so they can exchange and build on ideas they will disseminate to the broader health policy community.

The ICHPS 2020 program offers workshops, concurrent sessions, poster sessions, and many opportunities to network.
