Healthcare Analytics Unit

The Healthcare Analytics Unit (HAU) is a core facility of CHOP’s Research Institute co-directed by PolicyLab and the Center for Clinical Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness (CPCE). The HAU serves as a resource for PolicyLab and other CHOP investigators through data consultation, study design and methodology, data analyses, and data preparation for manuscripts. HAU staff have expertise managing and using data sources ranging from electronic health resources and clinical trial or registry data to administrative, claims or survey data. We also have experience across various statistical methods – including propensity score matching, multivariate modeling and latent variable mixture models – and expertise in geographic information systems and spatial analyses.
