COG Analytics (COG) is a health services research and technology development company. COG was founded in 2012 by a team of behavioral scientists and Friends Research Institute (FRI), a private, nonprofit research organization. COG was established to leverage the power of the market to promote human health and reduce health disparities in disadvantaged populations.
A cornerstone of COG’s business model is the translation and optimization of evidence-based practices and programs through state of the art technology. COG investigators bring a wealth of experience in health and social research spanning the areas of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use; criminal justice; diet and exercise; health disparities; HIV/AIDS; mental health; youth positive development and behavior problems; advanced scientific research methodologies and analytical techniques; research-driven health intervention design; and the development of interactive technologies for reducing health-risk behaviors.
COG scientists are committed to improving health and well-being by reducing and eliminating health disparities through research; innovative technological solutions; prevention and treatment initiatives; and community outreach, education, and training. Much of the work conducted at COG has focused on individual and community-based interventions and technologies. COG investigators have worked closely with research institutions, clinics, universities, and community-based organizations to address current and emerging public health challenges.
