Re-imagining the analytics function within the NHS

August 19, 2019 • Reading time 1 minute

Working closely with an NHS client, Edge Health developed a strategic roadmap and detailed vision for the future of their analytics function. This will help to develop an analytics team that is identifying, driving, and monitoring delivery of procurement savings across the NHS, rather than just performing ad-hoc analytics. This represents a shift from being a support function, and reflects the changing nature of analytics across both the NHS and wider economy.

Through placing analytics at the core of a business within the NHS, or elsewhere, it can help to unlock savings and opportunities, which can be scaled more effectively than previously possible.
