State Health Policy

State health policy is at the forefront of driving innovations in health care delivery and financing reform.

State government agencies facilitate multistakeholder collaborations and lead reforms in health insurance, medical care, public health, and social services. Through projects funded by states, foundations, and federal agencies, Mathematica helps its partners solve urgent challenges and deliver results that transform health care quality, delivery, and financing. This work includes the following:

  • Proposing solutions to help state and federal clients modernize health care systems, including designing multi-payer alternative payment models, delivery system reforms, and public health policy
  • Performing independent data analysis, including experience with claims data, medical records, and other public health and socioeconomic data, and evaluating health and public health policy
  • Providing strategic advisory services through leadership, expert technical advice, learning collaboratives, and coordination in policy research and policy development
  • Developing and maintaining systems to analyze complex data, such as in all-payer claims databases, and producing reports to inform health legislation, executive directives, and public reporting
  • Assisting states improve the quality of their data including the application of our deep, unparalleled knowledge of Medicaid data
  • Developing, testing, and analyzing cost and quality measures, as well as public reporting of this data

Our teams combine data analysis expertise and nuanced insights about state-specific policy and health system environments with the broad view of what’s working in other areas of the country to foster progress and drive data-driven decision making.
