His current research activity is focused on three themes: 1) economic evaluations of healthcare technologies (cost-effectiveness, cost-utilicy and budget impact analysis) and related methodological development founded on the pillar of value-based healthcare; 2) analysis and support to policymakers for public policy design and implementation; 3) analysis of health technology markets in terms of performance, innovation and reaction to public policies. He published several articles on international peer-reviewed journals and is author of a number of chapters in monographic works. Since 2009 he authors the chapter on healthcare expenditure on the OASI report, the most important Italian annual publication on the issues related to the healthcare system.

Patrizio’s activity in the production and diffusion of knowledge is coupled with frequent participation as speaker to international and national congresses and conferences. As an expert, he is often involved in advisory boards for companies operating in the pharmaceutical / medical devices industry.
