The Healthcare and Social Welfare sector is facing major strategic challenges. Expectations around delivery of services are changing as a result of increasing life expectancy, ageing populations, new and improved treatments for more conditions. Financial expectations between providers of services and the budgets of payers and commissioners are drifting away from each other.
Extensive medical and technical progress can increase costs but is also providing opportunities to improve efficiency.
To stay successful, all the key players must respond to changes driven by innovation, digitisation and commercialisation of healthcare provision. They must adopt and adapt technology and make changes in organisations, scope, processes and services within financial constraints.
Squaring the healthcare circle demands the highest levels of financial, medical and technological expertise. Our healthcare team includes clinicians, public sector accountants, commercial and healthcare information technology specialists.
We have a long and distinguished track record of providing a wide range of business and technology consulting services to European governments and agencies, public and private healthcare clients and related sectors.
We also adapt relevant and tailored commercial and private sector experience to develop tools specifically targeted at addressing European healthcare industry problems - such as HyperCube, a tool for ‘big data’ analytics with immense benefits for our clients.
Resource efficiency is a corner stone in efficient health care. Yet in the health care sector production planning and resource allocation has not always been the primary focus. This can partly be explained by the fact that the health care sector is characterized by complex operations, solely or partly state-financed with a focus on cost and quality. On the whole, health care operations are built around the in- and out-flow of patients. This calls for a continuous balance between demand and capacity in order to sustain cost efficiency and service quality.
Patient safety is crucial for every health care provider. Consequently, one of the fundamental quality requirements of health care is that it is safe and that patients are at no risk of being subject to injuries or harm caused by health care. Nevertheless, a number of international studies covering countries like UK, U.S., Denmark, Spain and the Netherlands, have reported that health care injuries constitute a high share (7.5 – 16.6 percent) of all medical care events.
