The Abacus Group, and all related companies, is a consulting and research firm. The founding principals of Abacus come from a strong behavioral science background, which forms the basis of all our programs. Our evidence-based and health behavior incentive programs can help employers save money on health care costs. Abacus has been in business for over 20 years, and our nationally recognized principals have over 100 years of collective consulting experience among them including their clinical work within health systems. We are particularly focused on the needs of employers, employer coalitions, hospitals, and health systems. Abacus has worked with a variety of clients, including both for and non-profit companies, large self-insured companies, payers, and providers. No matter the client, Abacus strives to work with each one to develop a program to fit the needs and goals of each unique organization.
Abacus has been awarded over $8 million in federal funding from Small Business Innovation Research grants from multiple divisions of the federal government including the National Institutes on Health and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Those grants primarily funded the research and development of evidence-based, consumer decision-support eHealth tools that are effective in improving health outcomes. Today, Abacus utilizes those tools within our Good Health Gateway® web portal, a primary communication vehicle, to support individuals in managing their health.
