Associate Professor, Department of Health Policy and Management

FOCUS

Health Economics and Policies

BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Timothy Page joined the faculty of the Department of Health Policy and Management in the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work in 2008 after completing a doctorate in economics at the University of New Hampshire. His doctoral studies were concentrated in health economics and public finance. As an economist working in public health, the overarching theme of his scholarship and teaching is bringing the tools of economic evaluation into new areas of health services and policy research. Translational research and implementation science are currently areas of great interest to the research community, and economic evaluations of costs and outcomes are integral to the process of translating health service and policy research into widespread implementation to improve population health.

Dr. Page’s research encompasses several topic areas, including kidney transplantation, chronic disease management, community based healthy aging initiatives, HIV/AIDS prevention, home health care for the elderly and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. His research began as a doctoral student evaluating the costs and outcomes of Medicare’s policies affecting kidney transplant recipients. Since joining Florida International University, Dr. Page has worked extensively with local community agencies.  He completed a project with Health Choice Network of Florida to evaluate the costs and outcomes of a new model for coordinating the care of diabetic patients.  He has also worked with The Health Foundation of South Florida to evaluate the costs of three evidence-based healthy aging programs implemented with community partners in South Florida.
