We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate and understand. As an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy we think healthcare should work better for all of us. At Collective Health we believe it’s time for a new day in healthcare where as members we are informed and empowered to make the right care choices when the decisions are urgent and critical.

The Data & Analytics team is a multi-disciplinary team of Actuaries, Data Analysts, Data Scientists, and Data Engineers with a passion of using data and advanced analytics to solve business problems and to support Collective Health’s strategy and business objectives.
