The Institute of Health Economics and Health Care Management analyzes approaches to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of health care. Using empirical methods, economic, socioeconomic and management issues are investigated at the level of health systems and populations, at the level of care strategies and technologies, and at the level of health care institutions.

The institute is organized in four research groups: Quantitative Methods in Health Economics, Economics and Management of Diabetes, Health Care Management and the junior research group Economics and Management of Lung Diseases. In addition, together with the Institute of Epidemiology, it runs the KORA research platform in Augsburg.
