Mathematica, a longtime partner to federal health agencies in evaluation, data analytics, and advisory services for the public sector, has expanded its offerings to Commercial Health Care and Life Sciences. The company is tapping its mission- and data-driven approach, which has helped inform the policies and programs of large health care systems such as Medicare and Medicaid, to offer advanced analytic and advisory capabilities to private providers and health systems, life sciences and med tech firms, risk-bearing entities, and medical colleges and societies in today’s complex health care ecosystem.

Andrew Hurwitz, senior director of commercial health care and life sciences, leads expansion of the practice. Hurwitz has extensive expertise in these areas as well as in business development and strategy, data science and statistics, research design, and mixed-methods program evaluation.

“Our Commercial Health Care and Life Sciences practice builds on more than five decades of shaping the nation’s public health care delivery systems through evaluation, technical assistance, and groundbreaking data analytics work,” said Hurwitz. “Now we’re also partnering with commercial clients to offer advisory services and analytics solutions across the continuum of care, which will improve public well-being on an even larger scale.”

Hurwitz is joined by Priyamvada Tewari, director of commercial life sciences and med tech. Tewari leads business development and strategy in this area and offers client solutions in clinical trial recruiting and design, real-world evidence, commercial development, and health economics outcomes research.

Today, Mathematica’s commercial health care and life sciences practice partners with clients such as Merck, Amazon Web Services, and MaineHealth. The practice spans four areas: (1) providers and health systems; (2) risk-bearing entities, including health care plans, benefits, and health care management; (3) life sciences and med tech; and (4) medical societies, associations, and colleges. Among its offerings, Mathematica's practice provides expertise in price transparency, real-world evidence for developing medicine and therapeutics, value-based care, and solutions for health care financing.
