The International Journal of Integrated Care (IJIC) is an online, open-access, peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes original articles in the field of integrated care on a continuous basis.
Liz Schroeder has been appointed Topic Editor in Health Economics and brings to IJIC unique expertise from both the UK and Australian contexts.
Liz holds a doctorate in Public Health from the University of Oxford and is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for the Health Economy, Macquarie University (MUCHE) in Sydney, where she leads the Integrated Care stream of research.
Her interests are primarily in mixed methods approaches to evaluating integrated care, blending process and economic evaluations and incorporating innovative measures to determine financial impacts and value-based outcomes. Liz’s vision is to support collaborations between researchers, clinicians, health economists and health service planners to ensure high quality embedded implementation and translational research.
She aims to attract research to IJIC designed to identify feasible, sustainable, cost-effective and scalable initiatives at local or regional levels to serve as indicators of success. In addition, she is looking for methodological papers to improve outcomes measurement, financing and funding models and high-quality evidence in evaluation.
Liz will be working closely with IJIC editors, Apostolos Tsiachristas and Viktoria Stein to develop these research streams.
