In healthcare, data helps us predict if and when certain events happen, which enables us to either prevent them from actually happening or to prepare in advance for corrective action. Data also helps us evaluate how well we are doing, either with respect to our own goals, or with respect to other external benchmarks.
We help multiple departments with understanding their performance through mining existing data for patterns and potential problem spots. We help evaluate the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, and relevance of existing data and information sources, and conduct statistical tests to answer hypotheses or design experiments to determine effectiveness of interventions. We also employ advanced data reduction, risk adjustment, and forecasting models as needed.
