Jack Jordan is a principal researcher in the Health Division at AIR. His primary responsibilities include leading the analytics support for the Convergence HQIC contract including designing the process to deliver data to stakeholders in dashboards, perform analysis to find leverage points, and use that data to advise Convergence HQIC improvement advisors on strategy. Jordan also supports contracts to deliver partially adjudicated claims data to accountable care organizations and direct contracting entities at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Jordan has extensive experience in patient safety improvement, managing production of analytics and measure development both in health care delivery systems and the policy arena.
