Hans L. Severens Prof., PhD (ESHPM)

I am professor of Evaluation in Health Care at the iMTA department of Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management since 2009. I hold an MSc Policy and Management in Health Sciences from the Maastricht University, and a PhD from the Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands. From 2001 until 2009 I worked as professor of Medical Technology Assessment at Maastricht University and as co-head of the department of Clinical Epidemiology and Medical Technology Assessment of the University Hospital Maastricht. My work is focused on economic evaluations of health care technologies, either as part of clinical trials or independent modelling studies and working on the research methods within this field. Since 2008, I am a full member of the Dutch National Health Council (GezondheidsRaad) and since 2013 Vice-Chair. In addition, I have been a member of the Committee Pharmaceutical Assistance (‘Farmaceutische Hulp’ _(CFH) of the Health Care Insurance Board (CVZ), for drug reimbursement advice). I was member of Board of Directors of the International Society of Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) and for ten years also co-editor of the scientific journal of this society, ‘Value in Health’.
