As a payor-owned research company, we are on a mission to fill gaps in evidence and facilitate collaboration between stakeholders to improve healthcare. Our decades of experience, expertise, and strong relationships across stakeholder groups provides access to the tools you need to create a robust research strategy, design a rigorous study, and analyze and interpret the data to provide a rich set of outcomes to help you meet your goals.

Health Economics & Outcomes Research: Industries We Serve
OUR RESEARCH POSITION

You need to generate evidence based on more than just having access to large or complex data. We recognize that data is the engine, but it is fueled by knowledge, perspective, rigor, and tailored approaches. That’s where we can help you do more with your research questions.

Our experts are deeply knowledgeable across a range of therapeutic areas in research methods. Our relationships provide your team with access to specialized expertise and partnerships. These combined strengths fuel our ability to access, understand, integrate, and analyze data in ways others cannot.

We can help you conduct studies that integrate clinical and claims data in meaningful ways by collecting data prospectively that will impact future care, and retrospectively to identify what is driving your questions today. In combination, you can tell a more complete story.

Health Economics & Outcomes Research CAPABILITIES
Helping deliver full service project management under the supervision of formally trained PMs who have hands-on experience running prospective and retrospective research studies. Our project managers are the primary point of contact for our clients, and our collaborative teams are built to the size, scope, and duration of each project to deliver study needs within the study requirements.
Establishing the current evidence by conducting searches of the published peer-reviewed literature and following procedures consistent with Effective Public Health Practice Project (EPHPP) guidelines. Through a systematic process we identify, appraise, collect, and describe the most current data in a systematic manner, summarized in a full report of key findings to provide background support for your study or submission.
Working with high-quality and well-organized data are prerequisites to rapid and reliable hypothesis testing. With an extensive background in large-scale and long-term studies, and management of claims data, we offer clients unparalleled data management services. Our data managers work collaboratively within the project teams, and have a keen understanding that the data they manage are more than just numbers.
Providing deep database expertise with medical claims, pharmacy claims, and laboratory results in collaboration with our data providers helps to ensure the validity and quality of the raw data. Scientific expertise integrating and harmonizing diverse data types and sources gives us an unparalleled understanding of the nuances of the data assets we manage.
Providing supervised machine learning to deliver stronger studies with more reliable results is one way we can improve the quality of healthcare. Our team of research experts build predictive models in multidimensional electronic data to identify health outcomes and reduce bias from misclassification errors. We validate claims using medical records, disease registries, patient and provider surveys, focus groups, and clinical oncology data.
Establishing a comprehensive sampling frame based on provider characteristics, patient eligibility status, prescription fills, and diagnoses or procedure codes from medical claims and laboratory test results. Our team of experts has deep familiarity with an extensive administrative claims repository to facilitate complex research designs. We are uniquely able to connect clinical and claims data and reach back to physicians and patients within these samples in ways others cannot.
Establishing a more complete picture of the de-identified patients in your analysis with our ability to conduct in-depth medical record review and abstraction. We start with your objectives for the review and apply a standard, step-by-step methodology documenting the details that can provide important information for your study or the development of healthcare recommendations and guidelines.
Delivering actionable evidence to better guide current disease management and to assist in the development of new therapeutic or biomedical technologies. Through structured, semi-structured, or cognitive interviews and focus groups, we provide access to a level of patient and clinician-reported information not found in other large-scale sources of health data including medical and pharmacy claims, paper-based and electronic medical records, and disease registries.
