Changing Healthcare Through Analytics

Transforming healthcare requires a commitment from each and every one of us. From those on the front-lines of clinical care to patients and their families. We are committed to the role that data and analytics can play in helping everyone become a data champion.

What We Do

We Create Data Champions

Data champions are the unsung heroes of modern healthcare.  They work among many arms—leadership, clinical service lines, IT, and of course the patient community.  Through their tireless curiosity and passion for improving health, data champions ensure that analytic insights can affect real change in service of our patients, loved ones, and each other.

What is your data & Analytics strategy?

Getting aligned: We strengthen your strategy and culture to ensure maximal value from data.

Successful positioning of your “big data” and analytics initiatives is essential to stay competitive. We help answer questions such as:

  • How should I structure my data strategy to be successful both today and in the future?
  • How can I measure data strategy effectiveness and agility?
  • How do I ensure value, support, and engagement from leadership?
  • What are the ethical considerations in my data strategy?
  • What data sources am I missing?
  • Is my current data strategy the right one for the future?

How are you transforming healthcare with analytics? Is it working?

Embracing change: We create the bridge between analytics and action.

Do you need to tie data and analytics strategy to health business impact? We help you address these questions:

  • How can I foster innovation while maintaining robust data and analytic processes?
  • What’s the best way to organize knowledge worker staff?
  • Do I need a Center of Excellence?
  • How can I prioritize my data and analytics initiatives?
  • Beyond self-service reporting, how can I foster the democratization of my data?
  • Why has there been lackluster adoption of our self-service data tools?
  • How can I ensure my team will meet future business needs?

How are you managing analytic talent

Developing data champions: We help build your learning health organization.

Analytics talent continues to be a top concern for most organizations. Do these questions sound familiar to you?

  • How can I ensure recruitment, selection, and onboarding strategies are effective and
  • After 18 months training someone in analytics, they left the team. What can I do to prevent
    this in the future?
  • How can I ensure that analytic talent is nurtured and motivated?
  • We “train” people but are not committed to “developing” people. How can I create a new
    mindset with leadership?
  • How can I get a data scientist new to healthcare ‘up to speed’ quickly?
  • How can my team improve storytelling with data?

Thot Leadership

Curiouser and curiouser! Each day we have conversations with Thought (Thot) Leaders from all over healthcare as we seek patterns that can help drive change. Catch up with us down the rabbit hole as we scour the inter-webs daily to curate the news and events that matter!
