Research

Stern Consulting advises researchers, analysts and healthcare organizations on data available to support project requirements. We draw upon our understanding of data resources to conduct original research and perform analysis on behalf of partners.

Original Research

We have recently completed a study on drivers of disparities in health status.

Preliminary results were presented at the National Association of Health Data Organizations (NAHDO) 2021 Annual Conference.

Support

Our research support services include identifying datasets for a particular objective as well as guiding users through the data acquisition process.

These services are driven by over 30 years of experience acquiring and utilizing datasets to analyze population health, clinical resource management, organizational performance and multiple other aspects of the healthcare system.

Resource Database

We maintain a database of datasets and sponsors of data, capturing the key characteristics of each source and including variable-level detail.

The database facilitates the identification of datasets for a particular project as well as the selection of specific outcome and classification variables.

We are in the process of developing an interactive dataset selection tool enabling external access to the database.
