The development and implementation of health information technology and its application to health care performance measurement is fundamental to improving health care. Mathematica is a national leader in the development and testing of quality performance measures for a range of populations and clinical service settings. Increasingly performance measurement is based on analysis of electronic health records and other health information technologies. We work with federal agencies to design quality measures that use electronic health records, as well as claims and administrative data, provider and patient survey data, and other data sources. We also provide technical assistance to help clients implement quality measures, convert measures for use with electronic health records (eMeasures), and analyze performance on quality measures to monitor the quality of care and assess the effect of different approaches to care.
We are currently seeking a Lead Healthcare Informatics Analyst to support the development, testing, and implementation of health information technologies and health care quality performance measures. Mathematica's offices are located in Princeton, NJ, Washington, DC, Cambridge, MA, Ann Arbor, MI, Oakland, CA and Chicago, IL.
