Jeffrey Holt manages programming, information technology security, project management, coordination and logistics, and other technical services for Mathematica’s health research projects. He specializes in measuring and reporting utilization, cost, and quality for Medicare providers and hospitals.
Holt leads the acquisition, processing, and analysis of Medicare, Medicaid, and programmatic data for the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus Initiative, a multipayer initiative of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) intended to transform thousands of primary care practices. He directs the design, implementation, and maintenance of a quarterly dashboard system for the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation that facilitates training and peer-to-peer learning to help Medicare accountable care organizations (ACOs) achieve better care for patients, better health for populations, and lower health care costs. With Holt’s support, the project is building a web-based dashboard as a tool to help ACOs perform data analysis. He also supports CMS with the computation of Medicare physician fee schedule payment modifiers and production of confidential physician feedback reports, which are designed to encourage practice improvement.
Holt joined Mathematica in 2004. He holds a certificate of public health from Rutgers University School of Public Health, where he is also completing coursework toward a master’s of public health. He holds a B.A.in geography and communication from Rutgers University.
