  • Conducting research

William Hall is a Health Economics PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia and a Research Associate with the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation. He is passionate about the cross-implementation of advances in economics, technology, and business management fields to healthcare systems. After completing a Joint Major in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Business Administration at Simon Fraser University, William has held positions as a Social Media Strategist, Marketing Coordinator, Business Development Consultant and Research Coordinator in the BC Children’s Hospital Emergency Department.

As part of his Master’s of Science in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC (November 2013), William created a tool to evaluate priority setting and resource allocation processes that has subsequently been implemented in two North American and one European healthcare organization. William has also led projects investigating ‘Lean’ applications in healthcare, the use of mobile platforms to improve delivery of care in hospitals, and priority setting and resource allocation processes in local government.

His current PhD project is focused on developing tools to assist decisions makers in making more evidence-informed decisions in the Home Care space. Ultimately, he hopes to create a health system model that will facilitate the determination of appropriate spend and/or resource allocation to Home Care by cost avoidance offsets in Acute and Residential care.

In his spare time, William enjoys skiing, swimming, playing Settler of Catan, and watching Superhero movies.
