Policy Analysis

As healthcare organizations adapt to and seek to guide changes in health policies, they engage Avalere to assess likely impacts of impending changes and to advise on strategy to shape those changes to address business challenges.


The Need for Analysis

To prepare for, respond to, and shape changing health policies, healthcare organizations need detailed knowledge of those policies. They need to know whether and how a policy could affect their business, requiring them to understand that policy’s aims, contents, consequences, and interconnections with other policies. They also need to identify and assess opportunities to shape that policy, or to channel its effects, and to seize those opportunities effectively.

Shaping and Adapting to Health Policies

Our policy experts use quantitative and qualitative techniques to analyze health policies and assess their likely impacts for clients. We help a broad range of healthcare organizations shape, understand, prepare for, and respond to policy impacts that affect them. Some clients need to understand the core meaning and implications of a given policy, while some want to use that understanding to develop and advocate for an alternative policy position. Other clients want to conduct quantitative analyses such as financial modeling and Congressional Budget Office-style scoring to project a policy’s impact on product sales, plan payments, or other financial targets.
