HHS enlists Archimedes Inc. to expand government's use of health care modeling
Date:5/3/2012

(San Francisco CA and Princeton NJ) -- To put high-powered mathematical analytics in the hands of its agencies, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has contracted with Archimedes Inc., a healthcare modeling company based in San Francisco CA. The contract will put the Archimedes model at the fingertips of its agencies, enabling them to research, analyze, and evaluate the effects of specific health care interventions more quickly and accurately.

The Archimedes Model, developed initially with support from Kaiser Permanente, is the most advanced mathematical modeling tool available to answer complex questions on health and health care. Under this contract, HHS will make a new web-based interface called the Archimedes Healthcare Simulator (ARCHeS) available to its agencies, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the National Heart, Lung & Blood Institute and the Food & Drug Administration in order to help better:

  • Analyze prevention activities and management of chronic conditions for patients;
  • Design guidelines, performance measures, and incentive programs, such as pay-for-performance;
  • Assess technologies and compare the effectiveness of different treatments;
  • Design clinical trials;
  • Analyze and improve health processes;
  • Forecast the costs of healthcare; and
  • Estimate the cost effectiveness of interventions.

HHS' ability to offer agencies widespread access to this revolutionary tool in clinical care and research was spurred by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Pioneer Portfolio, which, in 2007, provided a $15.6 million grant to support the creation of ARCHeS, which makes the Archimedes Model more accessible and affordable for public policymakers and nonprofit users.

"When we initially made this grant, I said that the development of ARCHeS woul
