A competitive edge is afforded to those organizations that can harness thinking data®—data that is more coherent, accessible, usable, and predictive.  But actionable analytics cannot be achieved in a silo.  It belongs to an ecosystem of interdependent business functions.

The ThotWave Analytics Maturity Model considers five competencies that together describe an organization’s analytics maturity.   This framework acts as our ‘true north’ to assess client current state as well as plan a roadmap of where to go next.  It is foundational in creating a package of prescriptive strategies and tactics aimed at evolving people, processes, and technologies through the learning health virtuous cycle.

Our portfolio of services are designed to assist health and life science organizations in understanding informatics maturity, analytics competencies, and competitive positioning relative to leaders in those industries.
