Measure Development of Care
How does one really measure the effectivity of the health care system? Acumen offers policymakers, care providers and consumers sound health care measures that make it easy to quantify care efficiency. By way of incentivization of effective care, Acumen's clients can better valuate provider performance with regard to cost, quality, and other domains. The company is currently developing episode-based cost measures and quality measures for clinicians, hospitals, and post-acute care providers.
Program evaluation is not only necessary in the policy implementation but also in its evaluation. Acumen helps federal, state, and local agencies evaluate both current processes and improvements within health care systems to ensure effective health care costs; high standards of care; optimum patient health and overall quality of life.
One of the advantages of Acumen's services lies in the power of information that they provide with their clients. When government agencies roll out major programs and policy changes, they often require real-time support and monitoring to ensure that their ordered changes are not affecting the public negatively in a drastic manner.

No matter how pressing the questions are about sensitive health care information, Acumen empowers their clients and team members to use these files in formats they prefer and according to the analytical software of their choice.
