About the Health Group

Econometrica’s Health Group consists of public and clinical health researchers, analysts, instructional designers, and economists who provide expertise in training, information diffusion, health research, quality measure development, monitoring, evaluation, technical assistance, and data analytics. Econometrica is a two-time Measure and Instrument Development and Support (MIDS) Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract holder from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and a contractor on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Domain V contract vehicle.

With healthcare and related industry trends constantly evolving, Econometrica’s experts use a variety of research and evaluation methods to provide innovative approaches for each client. In recent years, our team has developed tailored technical assistance plans for CMS, including working with States in accessing and using CMS data sources under the State Data Resource Center contract. We have had more than 250,000 provider impacts based on trainings focused on understanding and complying with the IMPACT Act on the Post-Acute Care (PAC) Training contracts, and we have had three quality measures endorsed by the National Quality Forum under our Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) contract.
