Strasys Health

Making a positive difference to population health and wellbeing

Insight driven health

At Strasys we believe in the principle that health and social care systems exist to benefit the population and act as a positive force in society.​

However, systems have become too complicated with an increasing conflict between ideology and delivery. The result is  unconnected behaviours and systems that detract from the primary purpose of meeting people’s health and social care needs effectively and efficiently.​ Traditional approaches are not working. We need to think differently.​

Strasys provides an alternate, more effective approach that looks at the system from a different perspective – people. Bringing a human perspective to current state analysis and future planning helps health and social care systems make the right decisions and  pursue the actions that improve the lives of the people they serve.​

Coming up with the right answers can be overwhelming. Our combination of capability and experience helps cut through the complexity and deliver greater value to society. ​

We challenge conventional thinking, discover deep insights, change mind-sets, create innovative strategies and solutions, and embed the capabilities and behaviours to succeed.​

Creating value

… Strasys’ work was inspirational! Their collaborative approach, coaching and deep intellect helped our board to develop a deeper understanding of our organisation and create a clear path to achieve our objectives. This is the best piece of consulting work we have seen. Strasys’ approach is needed by the NHS and should be applied across the country…

Enabling sustainable health and social care systems

We help systems to diagnose, develop, change behaviours and deliver performance improvement, sustainably. We inject scientific rigour, combining quantitative and qualitative analysis to:

  • Develop a deep understanding of population segments based on needs, wants, behaviours and how the burden of care
  • Determine the impact of changing demand and supply dynamics on services and organisations
  • Identify the system drivers of performance, the challenges and opportunities
  • Create solutions addressing resource, capacity, contracting and financial constraints
  • Develop simplified and high impact pragmatic plans supported by a robust financial turnaround strategy enabling a single plan triangulating productivity, finance, quality and operational agendas
  • Gain commitment to change and provide leadership support to deliver.

Enabling integrated care and service transformation

We support health and social care systems to deliver integrated care to meet the needs of the population they serve, sustainably and at pace. Using our unique multi-disciplinary population management and design thinking approach we help systems to:

  • Understand the areas of collaboration, opportunities and level of organisational maturity to make integrated care happen, including behaviours
  • Develop a deeper understanding of the population based on scientific rigour combining quantitative and qualitative analysis
  • Co-design and develop care models and service changes to address segment needs, behaviours, wants and future burden of care
  • Determine impact on current business/operating models, commercials, contracting and payment mechanisms needs to enable transformation
  • Develop transformation plans, the financial case for change, gain commitment and provide leadership support to implement.

Insight led strategy, planning and decision support

We help healthcare organisations to design their corporate strategies and transformation plans based on rigorous evidence base to deliver improved care and patient outcomes, sustainability. We go a journey of discovery and design with the board to:

  • Determine the changing nature of population demand and needs
  • Understand the organisations ecosystem and its own capability across its portfolio of services
  • Defines a clear strategic positioning for the organisation, evaluating potential options and how its services need to change to meet the needs of the population
  • Determine the impact on the organisation operating model  and how work is done
  • Create a simple and clear narrative to influence the wider system and inspire our staff
  • Simplify and develop a single version of transformation agenda creating the ‘golden thread’ across the organisation.

Intelligent Analytics and Digital Innovation

We help healthcare organisations to leverage their data to create actionable insights to enable better decision-making, improve performance and productivity. Building on over 10 years of experience and R&D, we use our AI analytics together with our resident clinicians, data scientists and anthropologists to simplify and humanise information to:

  • Triangulate the data across multiple dimensions such as finance, performance and quality, developing a single version of the truth
  • Develop an organisation’s capability to move up the data analytics maturity curve, moving from descriptive reporting to predictive to cognitive data analysis
  • Make the connection between Board decision making and data analytics, embdedding the right behaviours for informed decision-making
  • Develop patient facing digital solutions using deep insight into patients, the market, capabilities and performance drivers

Strasys tools

Strasys leverages its own proprietary research, analysis and industry experience to develop disruptive and innovative tools to enable our clients to solve their most complex challenges faster and more economically.

Tanaba

Predictive analytics for more accurate planning and diagnostics

Tanaba enables providers to optimise their transformation plans and maximise use of resources to deliver the greatest impact.  The tool triangulates vast number of data sources across the clinical, operational and financial dimensions and using machine learning algorithms creates actionable insight and enables comparison across the NHS.
