COVID-19 Data Primer Launched by Mathematica

Mathematica continues to partner with our clients and groups like the National Association of Health Data Organizations (NAHDO) to respond to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in the area of data analytics. COVID-19 has affected health care administrative data, such as claims, in several ways. Notably, it has led to changes in diagnostic and procedural coding guidelines, payment policies, and shifts in case mix. Analysts, actuaries, and data scientists need this information to respond to these changes, but the information is scattered across many sources focused on specific topics (such as coding telehealth services in Medicaid claims).

In response, Mathematica created a COVID-19 Data Primer.  Read more here.
