CASE-STUDY_Change & Capability

Premier Inc.

Empowering teams, accelerating innovation and attracting new talent in healthcare.

Premier delivers insight to its alliance members through a mix of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) analytics. Available as off-the-shelf and custom options, Premier solutions are aligned with its members’ operational and strategic needs – such as supply chain optimisation or enhancing patient care.

Internally, their 30-strong data consulting team were reliant on SAS for both research questions and customised data services. However, increasing SAS license renewal rates and restrictive terms and conditions prompted the company to search for a more modern and cost-effective platform. After a period of consultation, Premier decided to adopt a faster, more capability rich open source R environment for their internal teams to accelerate innovation and attract new data science talent.

Change planning.

Deliver data-led change rapidly and effectively across your business.

Driving value from your data-led change programmes requires clear technical direction, organisational commitment and strategic planning. However, a high number of data programmes are designed and executed in isolation, without integration into non-technical change management.

We design service blueprints, adoption roadmaps and new business processes around new data solutions to ensure they deliver maximum impact. We work with your teams to communicate findings effectively through data visualisation, promoting iterative improvement and continuous learning.

Data literacy.

Increase the data literacy of your business leaders to help realise the value and impact of your data.

Business leaders with a high level of data literacy are better equipped to drive competitive advantage from their data investments. Establishing meaningful communication between data experts and decision-makers promotes a culture of evidence-based decision-making, and compliance with governance standards.

We work with your senior stakeholders and executives to build engagement and understanding around their data potential, instilling a data-driven culture, empowering employees and promoting cross-functional, innovative collaboration.

Open source.

Migrate away from expensive, proprietary technology platforms and adopt modern, flexible open source tools.

Proprietary data platforms often make it difficult and costly to adapt to changing needs, or take advantage of newer technologies. Most of the recent innovation in data has been in the open source, cloud-enabled tech stack: Python, R, Large Language Models and services provided by cloud vendors.

We help you evaluate factors like long-term support, scalability and integration with other systems as part of your data platform strategy. Where appropriate, we migrate data, codebases and skills away from legacy platforms to more modern tools that allow you to fully exploit new features and capabilities.

Process redesign.

Align new data products and services with key processes to maximise business value.

Launching a new data product or solution requires careful consideration of existing processes to accelerate integration, drive adoption and maximise effectiveness. But businesses often implement new data solutions without adapting or transforming living processes, potentially leaving value behind.

We map out the end-to-end data flow to surface any process alignment issues or opportunities, evaluating data sources, integration points, security implications and data governance to maintain consistency and accuracy across the organisation.
