Policy & Regulatory


Avalon has a long history of providing high level analysis and consulting on matters related to health policy and government relations. Our reports have been used in meetings of the Congressional Budget Office, the House Ways and Means Committee, and state and federal legislative briefings. The results of our analyses have helped shape state and federal policies and have been published in peer-reviewed health policy and health economics journals. Our comparative advantage in policy analysis and government relations is in our data analytic capabilities, which enable us to bring advanced data science, statistical analysis, and novel use of data to gain clearer understandings of complex policy issues.
