We understand the NHS and Local Authorities are under pressure.

The old adage, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, seems the stuff of legends. With austerity, finding integrated and sustainable health and social care solutions that meet the future requirements of a changing and vulnerable demographic is overshadowed by competing pressures. We can help as a leading specialist healthcare procurement company awarded by NHS frameworks.

You’re not alone.

We have developed a market leading integrated health and social care solution to drive sustainable results around…

A strong belief
Delivering greater integration requires the improved ability to anticipate the variables in demand, that disrupt the system and drive higher costs. Anticipating increases in demand facilitates proactive demand management, which reduces cost variability to deliver improved outcomes for patients.
Put into practice
Our integrated solution planning toolkit is based on programmes driven by benchmarked leading practices, predictive analytics, and population variance analysis. These are there to improve stakeholder capability to take proactive, data-driven strategic decisions.
Experienced approach
We can identify and combine different relevant data sources and correlate the information at a population and patient level. This is to provide you with actionable insights that support your strategy planning and development, drive implementation, monitor results, and determine the right course of action.

Our results speak for themselves…

Achieved £178m cost reduction (16% above target) for a nationally managed care organisation across a roster of population health initiatives

Delivered a 10 – 25% annual savings following execution of a comprehensive detailed evaluation of the service line performance on implant cases in a 450 bed hospital

Reached over £7m of savings from an adult social care budget via implementation of a modernised and efficient centralised brokerage function

Created a predictive model to accurately predict high risk pregnancies culpable to become Neonatal Intensive Care Unit  (NICU) births, identifying approx. 6% of births, equating to £2.8m of NICU avoidable cost

Facilitated care coordination, streamlining and managing demand, to achieve a reduction in GP attendances and a 7% reduction in T1 ED attendance for a programme involving three local authorities.

Our approach to delivering integrated health and social care service…

Focus on delivering value
Our solutions ensure that you are providing services that deliver real change. With experience as a leading healthcare procurement company means we understand the need to achieve sustainable peak performance around quality of care, cost, and efficiency in today’s dynamic health and social care environment.
Central to our integrated healthcare predictive planning model are defined patient cohorts. These cohorts ensure from the outset that high-risk and high-consuming patients are identified and assigned to appropriate cohorts and sub-cohorts early in the care planning process. This is where clinical opinion and evidence-based best practice show the greatest potential gain.
