James O’Malley Receives Distinguished Award for Scientific Excellence
James O’Malley, MS, PhD, a professor of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice and of biomedical data science at the Geisel School of Medicine and director of the Program in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences, has received the 2019 ISPOR (International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research) Award for Excellence in Health Economics and Outcomes Research Methodology.
With more than 20,000 individual and chapter members from over 110 countries, ISPOR is dedicated to improving healthcare decision making globally. It’s members include: researchers and academicians, assessors and regulators, payers and policy makers, the life sciences industry, healthcare providers, and patient engagement organizations. The society established the award in 1997 to recognize outstanding research in the field of health economics and outcomes research.
“I was excited to receive the news that I had been selected as this year’s recipient,” says O’Malley, who will receive the award at the society’s upcoming annual meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. “Given today’s increasingly collaborative and interdisciplinary research arena, it is very meaningful. And I think it depicts the profession of statistics in a very positive light.”
Each year, the award is given to an exceptional paper that moves the field of outcomes research forward and is expected to have significant impact with anticipated wide acceptance and application by others.
