Health Policy, Data Analysis, And Policy Development

DeBrunner & Associates uses our health policy, data analysis, and policy development experience and expertise to help our clients understand their environment better and work to improve that environment in ways that contribute to their business success.

When we learn of proposed changes in state health care policies we analyze them carefully, calling upon our deep-seated understanding of Pennsylvania health care laws, regulations, policies, and reimbursement formulas so we can determine their potential impact on our clients. A key tool in these analytic efforts is our extensive use of data: we use our own large, state-wide databases to model the precise potential impact of proposed policy changes on our clients.

We use this same data analysis capability to power our own policy development efforts. Through such activities, we help our clients launch their own policy initiatives by documenting the need for a policy change, developing a policy proposal, and making a persuasive case that our proposal addresses both our clients’ and state policy-makers’ needs. These endeavors produce better Medical Assistance and other reimbursement for our clients.

Few government relations consulting firms possess either the policy expertise or the technical tools needed to serve their clients in this manner; DeBrunner & Associates has both. Through the years we have used these distinctive capabilities to drive numerous successful public policy initiatives in Pennsylvania for our clients – initiatives that have improved the financial well-being of those clients.
