Short BiographyDarrin Baines is a Professor of Health Economics in the Department of Accounting, Finance & Economics, Bournemouth University.
I am a professor of health economics with a reputation for leading-edge, rigorous and high-quality research, with particular strengths in the economics of health policy and health systems. My research and consultancy activities focus on: (i) evaluating the value of money of new healthcare programmes for NHS decision-makers, (ii) the relationship between staff and patient well-being, as well as valuing health outcomes, (iii) productivity and the efficient allocation of resources in health systems, and (iv) the economics of technical innovation, with a focus on “technology-enabled pharmacy”.
During my career, I have successfully delivered over 70 health economics and health policy projects, with clients including the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, the NHS, charities, the British Council and the NIHR. I have also had over 140 articles published in both academic and trade journals. I have a strong international profile as an authoritative subject matter expert in health economics and health policy. I am currently leading two international knowledge transfer partnerships supporting the exchange of health economics expertise from the UK to Egypt and China.
I am a clear communicator and an effective presenter, with an established reputation for explaining the complexities of health economics in simple terms, particularly to international audiences.
