Transforming healthcare through analytics, informatics, and technology

The technology landscape is constantly evolving. To keep up with what’s next, health systems must harness effective data, analytics, and informatics platforms to deliver intelligent care.

Healthcare's delivery and business models are at the precipice of major change. In the new digital era, the only way forward is through bold, innovative informatics and technology solutions that enable next-generation care models, improve healthcare delivery systems, and drive what’s next for healthcare around the world.

Now more than ever before, clients must ask themselves critical questions about the role technology plays in how they are delivering care, including:

  1. How does technology support efficient and effective operations across clinical and operational dimensions (e.g., EHR, ERP, digital) and external business partners and providers?
  2. How can technology be leveraged to identify, accelerate, and realize sustainable financial improvements?
  3. Do we have the right governance and structure to support IT-enabled transformation and data and analytic needs for source business and clinical decision-making?
  4. What should our technology platform and architecture look like in the coming years to advance market position, enable the evolving care model, and drive outcomes and value?

Emerging Technology

We advise clients on technology-enabled innovation to unlock new potential and create enduring strategic advantages.

The ERP Ecosystem, Business Informatics, and Technology

We help clients leverage the advanced capability, utility, and flexibility of business systems like ERP for improved cost saving and cost management, supply chain management, margin and cost accounting transparency, human capital management and staff satisfaction, and competitive differentiation. We work with clients to fundamentally re-evaluate their operating model, prioritize target benefits, and leverage ERP as a strategic differentiator and ROI generator – all in an accelerated process that doesn’t short-change the intended transformational value.
