Exceptional Data Analytics
Hilltop’s expertise extends to linking disparate data sets at the individual level and developing derived variables for a more holistic view of an individual’s experience in the health and social services delivery systems. We use analytics to target at-risk populations for intervention programs and create comparison groups using propensity score matching and other techniques. We collaborate with academic researchers on data-driven development and evaluation of health care financing and delivery system reforms. We build, administer, and analyze provider and client surveys designed to inform the development of service delivery programs and monitor the quality of services provided.
In January 2014, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services issued a final rule defining what constitutes a home and community-based service (HCBS) setting. Geographic proximity to an institution can be an indicator of community integration. For the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Administration, Hilltop used geo-coding to map and validate compliance information reported by HCBS providers through an electronic assessment. View Poster
