Academic Interests

Dr. Feng Xie is an Associate Professor of Health Economics in the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact, McMaster University. His research interests include economic evaluations using model and/or clinical trial data, health related quality of life and health preference measures, and design of cost effectiveness randomized trials. Dr. Xie is particularly interested in developing new methods related to health preference elicitation. He has applied these methods to chronic health conditions such as arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes. Dr. Xie has conducted numerous new health technology assessments to support federal and provincial reimbursement decision making. Dr. Xie is also intensively involved in measuring patient-reported outcomes alongside randomized clinical trials, as part of routine clinical practices, and for cost effectiveness analysis.
