The solution enabled markets to improve service levels and identify significant reductions in working capital.
  • Stratification modelling.Supported the development of a London-wide patient risk management tool for the National Health Service. The tool has helped general practitioners and clinicians intervene and case manage 1000's of high risk patients with chronic illnesses by leveraging predictive models which help identify the patients with the highest risk of readmission and other high cost behaviours.
  • Supply chain impact modelling.Supported the development of an economic model to measure the financial and operational impacts of new product launches on the supply chain of a global medical device manufacturer.
