Son Nghiem, Associate Professor, PhD

Dr Son Nghiem has more than 10-year experience in applied econometrics and health economics research. Dr Nghiem has developed a strong track record with over 100 peer-reviewed papers published in high-impact journals in health economics, public health and health services research. He has been awarded over $1,500,000 in research grants and fellowship. One of his most impacted studies is the development of the Classification of Hospital Acquired Diagnoses (CHADx) to improve the safety of patients. Dr Nghiem has also developed a predictive model to estimate a risk score for trauma admissions using a machine learning approach. Recently, he led a study to predict the risk of frailty for older patients using the longitudinal study of cardiovascular admissions in Queensland. He is conducting various research projects on cardiovascular disease, including the development of a disease progression model for heart attack using a multi-state hidden Markov model and estimation of a hospital frailty risk score and assesses its ability to predict adverse health outcomes in Australia.
