Do schools such as HMS, Stanford, etc. accept students who have research experience but not in the basic sciences? Do they still look favorably on applicants with health economics or epidemiology research experience?

Imo. N=1, but none of my research was basic science/bench research. Got into one of the top NIH funded schools, where they make you do research in order to graduate.
