Descriptive, Predictive and Prospective Analytics

Our consultancy team can tailor analytical solutions to your individual health and care related information requirements. The type of support we offer is diverse and varied and we welcome projects of varying size, complexity and duration. Our team of information experts exploit a wide range of tools, data and other resources across all aspects of the intelligence cycle, including:

  • Data sourcing and collection
  • Database design
  • Data analysis and statistical modelling
  • Data visualisation and reporting

To date we have worked with a range of partner organisations, and health and social care providers to support their work on:

  • Service planning and redesign
  • Quality improvement and patient safety
  • Public health research and innovation

On occasion, we may be able to provide ‘direct on-site support’. In these instances, skilled information staff are placed within locally based teams to provide continuous specialist analytical expertise over a fixed term. These arrangements provide our staff with unique opportunities to gain valuable insights into the work of your organisation and aim to provide you with the benefits of:

  • Access to national data and resources
  • Devolved staff governance
