- Find resource use and costs and quality-of-life data to populate the model
- Be able to explain what has been done and interpret the results in presentations and written documentation
- Produce supporting documentation for models such as technical reports, business cases, user guides, posters and manuscripts
- Producing documents support submissions to reimbursement bodies such as the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) or the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) that assess the cost-effectiveness and budget impact of new health technologies
- Train client payer facing teams to use the developed budget impact models
- Working with our designers and programmers to create fully programmed digital versions of models produced
- Support and mentor junior staff
