Dr Quan is an Associate Member of the Hong Kong College of Community Medicine, and an honorary physician attached to the Department of Family Medicine & Primary Healthcare, Queen Mary Hospital. He teaches the introductory Health Economics module on the MPH curriculum.

Dr Quan’s research focuses on the economic analysis of health policy and health care services with the goal of improving population health. His research uses large-scale individual-level data to study the economic costs of non-communicable diseases in Hong Kong. In addition to modelling the effects of public health policy interventions, Dr Quan is conducting a randomized clinical trial of incentives framed around behavioural economics to improve health outcomes. Dr Quan collaborates with research institutions across US, Europe and Asia to build comparative research across international health systems. Since 2017, Dr Quan has been awarded over HK$3.5m research funding as PI with grants from the RGC ECS, GRF and HMRF Research Fellowship schemes.

Dr Quan welcomes undergraduate students in medicine and related disciplines with a keen interest in developing research skills in data analysis and randomized clinical trials. The minimum period is three months. For enquiries, please contact Dr. Quan with CV at jquan@hku.hk.

My work on global health policy supports evidence-based policymaking in several countries. This is the first large-scale study to analyse avoidable admissions from diabetes complications in multiple East Asian locations: Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Beijing. It provides evidence-based policymaking to support the hypothesis that a higher number of outpatient primary care visits in a given year is correlated with a lower likelihood of a related avoidable hospital admission in the following year. This study was featured in several news outlets including Sing Pao, Hong Kong Economic Journal, Hong Kong Economic Times and am730. 

I also specifically developed newly developed algorithms to be more parsimonious compared to existing diabetes risk scores, while still preserving predictive performance. By requiring less data variables, these new diabetes models can be more widely implemented across clinical settings. The study results are accessible via a free interactive Web tool to allow individual risk prediction. These are the first risk scores to be developed and externally validated in very large Chinese population cohorts consisting of hundreds of thousand participants.
