Jeffrey Holt manages programming, information technology security, project management, coordination and logistics, and other technical services for Mathematica’s health research projects. His project work focuses measuring and reporting utilization, cost, and quality for Medicare providers and hospitals.
Holt plays a lead role in the development of a dashboard system to facilitate learning and monitoring for accountable care organizations (ACOs) for the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation. The project team has built a structure for training and peer-to-peer learning to help Medicare ACOs achieve better care for patients, better health for populations, and lower health care costs. He also supports the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services with the computation of Medicare physician fee schedule payment modifiers and production of confidential physician feedback reports to encourage practice improvement. For the evaluation of the Independence at Home Demonstration, a multiyear, comprehensive evaluation testing benefits of a home-based primary care model for high-need Medicare beneficiaries with chronic conditions and functional limitations he provides systems support, and he also leads administrative claims and enrollment data collection, processing, and management for the Evaluation of the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative.
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.
