Program Evaluation

Whether it is a clinical treatment strategy, diagnostic tool, population health program, or benefit design question, we provide guidance on the effectiveness of interventions based on the established evidence and analysis of robust clinical and claims data assets to get to solutions that help you make informed decisions.

The strength of our program evaluation team goes beyond our access to and knowledge of clinical and claims data. We have a robust understanding of the healthcare ecosystem and how stakeholders interact with each other to deliver healthcare. Our multidisciplinary team of researchers understand the challenges faced by payors, providers, and patients, so we can translate large and complex data into real-world solutions. By understanding the bigger picture we can provide confidence through deep expertise, independent evaluation, and scientific rigor.

Industries We Serve Program Evaluation CAPABILITIES
Project Management
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.
Health Services Research
Offering a comprehensive understanding of the social and economic factors, system structures, and healthcare processes that affect patients’ utilization of healthcare and drive health outcomes. Our team has the expertise to assess the impact of these factors on the delivery, cost, and quality of care. This, combined with access to and understanding of diverse sources of linked data, provides a unique perspective to help you design and implement your study.
Large and Complex Database Analytics
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.
Patient and Provider Outreach
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.
Machine Learning
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.
Survey Based Research
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.
Medical Record Review and Abstraction
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.

JAMA Study Shows Utilization Management Increases Short-Course Radiation in Breast Cancer Patients Directly and Not Directly Exposed to Policy

Hypofractionated, or shorter-course radiation, is equally as effective as conventional, or longer-course radiation, for patients with early-stage breast cancer. It’s also more convenient with fewer side effects.
