Mathematica plus Google Cloud

Mathematica, an insight partner for health care data and analytics, announced today it is collaborating with Google Cloud on Google Cloud’s new Healthcare Data Engine. Mathematica will use the groundbreaking data tools in the Healthcare Data Engine to provide its respected health care measures, data analytics, and data science capabilities to health care teams and leaders across the country.

“With the accelerating transition to value-based care, providers and health plans need timely, actionable information about gaps in care, particularly in patients with chronic diseases where information often resides across different facilities and is hard to follow over time,” said Matt Gillingham, Vice President and CTO, health practice at Mathematica. “Enabling a longitudinal patient record across the health system network in near real time makes it possible to identify and close gaps in care, and it improves patients’ experiences, outcomes, and health equity.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Mathematica on board as a pioneering partner of our Healthcare Data Engine,” said Joe Corkery, M.D., Director of Product Management, Google Cloud. “Together, we help customers transform health care by reducing costs, improving quality and delivery of care, and, ultimately, improving outcomes for patients.”

For more than 50 years, Mathematica’s rigorous research has helped private and public change makers answer the toughest questions about the effectiveness of health programs and policies. Mathematica’s expertise in methods, data, policy, and technology through Healthcare Data Engine includes:

  • Clinical data validation of data in motion
  • Development, deployment, and evaluation of artificial intelligence models
  • Program improvement
  • Evaluation of social determinants of health and equity

Mathematica is a national leader in health care analytics and clinical quality measures and an expert on big data in health care. Using AREMAC (the nation’s largest Medicaid database), we have helped Medicaid organizations gain insights from over 58 billion claims records covering more than 5 billion beneficiary records. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the nation’s largest health care payer, also deemed Mathematica one of the top seven innovators in artificial intelligence. The Mathematica difference is captured via our comprehensive digital offerings, through which health care providers, payers, life sciences firms, and medical device manufacturers can gain deeper insights, set and guide strategy, and improve operations for better outcomes at a lower cost.
