Aggressive Analytics was formed in 2008 to provide a unique, embedded approach to help health care organizations continually improve their operations in an increasingly value-driven marketplace. As opposed to being just a consultant or a contractor, we become part of your improvement team.
Aggressive Analytics was performing the role of health data scientist long before Harvard Business Review named it the "sexiest job of the 21st century." Many health care organizations have excellent information technology and business skills but their projects do not succeed. This is because the role of the data scientist is missing.
Health data scientists live at the intersection of technology, medicine, and business and use their knowledge, skills, and abilities to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms. They do this by serving as value-added bridges: translating capabilities and expectations; building teams; and using advanced data analysis techniques such as statistics, data mining, and predictive analytics.
Members of our team have an extensive background in management and data science, health care operations, and performance improvement. As recognition of this expertise, they have served on multiple Federal Advisory Committees on health care quality, performance measurement, information technology, health system development, and payment system reform.
