Stephanie Earnshaw, PhD, is Senior Vice President of Health Economics at RTI-HS. She was trained in industrial engineering/operations research and has extensive experience in applying decision-analysis techniques to pharmaceutical/health diagnostic industry-related issues and health care problems. She has developed decision models to examine the budget impact and cost-effectiveness of pharmaceuticals and diagnostics in cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disorders, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, transplantation, infectious disease, osteoporosis, and men’s health, among other therapeutic areas. She has used her background to project costs, utilization, and clinical outcomes using decision tree, Markov, simulation, and mathematical programming methods. In addition to teaching the ISPOR budget impact short courses, she presents the Markov Model Toolkit offered under the ISPOR distance learning program. She is a member of the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research and the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences. She has presented her research at numerous national and international conferences. She has published extensively, including publications in Annals of Internal Medicine, Archives of Internal Medicine, Journal of General Internal Medicine, Haemophilia, Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, American Journal of Neuroradiology, Medical Decision Making, Journal of American Society of Nephrology, Stroke, Respiratory Medicine, and Value in Health.
