Isaiah Luc is a health economist in Adelaide Health Technology Assessment with a background in epidemiology, biostatistics and health informatics. He is responsible for the production, evaluation and critical appraisal of health economic models for medical services and pharmaceuticals submitted to the Medical Services Advisory Committee and the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee who inform federal government health expenditure.

His academic background and industry experience, notably with SA Department of Health’s Communicable Disease Control Branch, has given him unique skills in epidemiological modelling, large scale data management and manipulation and statistical processing.

He has a special interest in utilising data to make informed and evidence-based decisions to improve health systems. This is reflected in his current research, where he has joined a multi-disciplinary, cross-institutional team, contracted to deliver a $2.25 million project aiming to provide palliative care services to South Australia's most vulnerable communities. Isaiah is responsible for modelling the need, along with the associated workforce needed, for palliative care services in Australia until 2040, with specific reference to CALD communities and rural and remote areas by using routinely available mortality data.
