Abt Associates is a trusted partner in evaluating, advising, and assisting states, federal agencies, and local organizations on health care research and implementation.
In recent years, Medicaid programs and new health insurance options began covering millions more people. Existing programs to help the underserved are adapting to the new landscape of health insurance exchanges and new organizations. And new grants and awards became available for innovations to reduce costs and improve quality, particularly in Medicare.
“Abt is evaluating the effectiveness of Accountable Care Organizations
, the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Initiative
, and other initiatives and projects of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
,” said Chris Spera, vice president of the Division of Health and Environment at Abt Associates.
Abt also is carrying out a number of projects for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) regarding special populations.
“We are committed to delivering the best evidence and assistance possible regarding health care reform,” Spera said.
