With proprietary tools, national service capacity, and a talented professional team, HPR serves clients with population health, patient management, and consumer engagement challenges. HPR Advisors assist client organizations with a wide range of critical research, assessment and strategic planning needs. HPR routinely supports patient and consumer intervention projects as well as communication and engagement initiatives focused
on carefully targeted populations and population segments.


Important HPR capabilities include:

  • Population health assessment
  • Target population identification and profiling
  • Prospective health risk analysis
  • Health services demand modeling
  • Segmentation analysis
  • Life-circumstance intelligence

Our Approach

HPR Analytics bring clarity, continuity and cohesion to population health data management and analysis by delivering in-depth insights into the life circumstances of patient, employee and consumer populations. Population assessments at HPR begin with individual consumers, health plan members, employees, or patients whose data is aggregated to create households, population groups, HPR Context Groups and Context Segments, and ultimately, defined populations.


HPR integrates patient, employee and consumer data within proprietary analytic models for population assessment, segmentation analysis, communication analysis and health risk projections. These capabilities allow clients to implement better informed and more efficient assessments and interventions. Patient, employee and consumer engagement initiatives are able to address every member of the care continuum—from healthcare providers and insurers to patients, patient families and patient support networks.
