Health Care Sector Modeling

Health Care Sector Modeling

Economic modeling is an effective tool that sheds light on many health care issues. Models can vary in their sophistication from simple spreadsheet data analysis to a tool that can simulate policy environments. Economic models allow clients to assess how the health sector would operate under different circumstances -- the "what if?" that is often missing in policy experiments.
 
NERA's Health Care Practice has used statistical and economic models to estimate resource needs; assess the impact of policy change on outcomes; establish cost and benefits of policies and products; and ascertain demand preferences using surveys and techniques such as choice modeling. Our clients include hospitals, insurers, providers and other stakeholders, pharmaceutical companies, and local and international governments. Our strength lies in the combination of broad experience in the discipline along with specialist experts in the fields of economic modeling, operation management, and econometrics, and a thorough understanding of the health sector.
