Altarum Institute relies on state-of-the-art data collection, analysis and presentation to deliver quantitative and qualitative research that informs our clients’ health services and programs. Our survey data collection tools employ multimode techniques (eg, Web, mail, and phone). We analyze and report data using advanced data visualization, interactive Web-reporting techniques, and on-line simulators for topics including quality improvement.

Using geographic information system capabilities, we create thematic maps that aid in visualization and spatial analysis of various health-related statistics and information. Altarum leverages the latest in graphic design and advanced computer cartographic techniques to produce publication-quality maps and custom thematic maps.

In our modeling, forecasting, and predictive analytics, Altarum Institute combines our expertise with our Systems Change Model© to deliver systems-based decision support. With expertise in top industry business intelligence platforms such as Oracle and SAS, decades of experience supporting large programs like TRICARE, and a commitment to decision science and emerging methods, we enable clients to access business information needed for timely decisions and enhanced organizational performance.

These solutions help determine the impact from changing economies, regulations, payment systems, and populations, effectively increasing the quality of health care in both public and private sectors. Altarum also provides leaders and key stakeholders with information on reform impacts and develops “what if” scenarios and models to enable leaders to make the best decisions possible.
