Global focus

Our clients aspire to deliver world class quality of care. We help them to achieve it by understanding the variation in their performance against that of other leading hospitals.

We have more experience than any other global organisation in the harvesting, risk-adjustment and comparison of multiple healthcare datasets across multiple international borders.

The work we do is pioneering, complex, painstaking and the output reflects the result of years of investment in research and development. With this investment, and with our people and partners in London, New York, Washington DC, Shanghai and Sydney, we are in a unique position to advise you on your performance locally, nationally and globally.

Our Global Comparators programme is an unparalleled international hospital collaborative across 12 countries, focused on the pooling and benchmarking of data, alongside expert knowledge-sharing networks, to understand variations in outcomes and disseminate international best practice.

Alongside the Global Comparators programme, our principal areas of activity are currently in  Australia, North America, continental Europe, Asia and the United Kingdom.
