Publications

We believe that clear communication of research results is a critical part of health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) and policy analysis, and the best way to communicate results is through peer-reviewed publications. Avalon researchers and consultants have published their research in a wide range of peer-reviewed journals and books, covering topics across all four of Avalon’s practice areas. This list below provides a partial list of publications.

  • Journal of the American Medical Association
  • Medical Care Research and Review
