Work with our analytical research team to answer your most pressing questions

Our Analytical Services team is highly skilled in providing analysis and intelligence.  They will work alongside your in-house team to define the problem and produce analyses to help answer the most complex questions.  Services provided can include:  bespoke analysis of patient administrative data at hospital, unit, speciality or practitioner level; linking of multiple datasets to spot patterns or benchmarks; building bespoke risk models or casemix adjustments; national and global comparisons. This work is often best delivered on-site, enabling us to build a full understanding of the data with which hospitals are working and facilitating knowledge transfer to other staff across the health system.
