Our Informatics Services

Our team, led by Doug Shannon, has over 15 years of experience assisting many of the nation's largest Medicaid programs to better use their detailed and summarized data.

Today’s health care leaders often find themselves in a position of being data rich and information poor while being under tight time constraints. Accurate analysis and use of health care data can ensure effective policy design and program management, ultimately supporting the overall program goal and budget. We understand the critical role health care data plays in many of the key decisions facing the measurement, reporting, and policy-making within Medicaid and other health care programs.

We assist with better use of their detailed and summarized encounter and fee-for-service (FFS) data. Mercer’s expertise is unique because we have the capacity to work side by side with actuaries, clinicians, pharmacists, and consultants to ensure an integrated approach for addressing a client’s data-related issues.
