By Jennifer Keller

Our entire Stratasan team knows the importance of deeply understanding the needs and desires of the healthcare strategists, marketers, physician liaisons and other decision-makers we serve. We're constantly working to identify our customers' motivations, challenges and struggles, so we can more effectively support them and better tailor our products and services to capably address their top priorities.

This amazing team - highly skilled at conducting in-depth qualitative research and utilizing simple frameworks to capture a central message - served us well, both confirming what we already knew and uncovering many interesting new insights.

Improve Your Negotiation Strategy and Establish Favorable Market Rates

By Jennifer Keller

When talking to clients in the midst of scaling operations in a new market, the question of how to establish attractive market rates often comes up. Entering a new market with rates too high can be a deterrent for growth and setting the right rates can be challenging.

The right data, insights, and tools are key to identifying the sweet spot when setting rates and planning for payer negotiations.  

Often, payer negotiations are driven by a team’s working knowledge of the market rates, or based on insufficient input from outside consultants. In this post, we’ll discuss how to use reimbursement data effectively when entering new markets and preparing for negotiations. 

We’ll discuss what data is needed, what new insights can be found, and how the right data can help your organization grow more successfully.

Demographic Data: From Commodity to Strategic Planning Asset

Posted by Tony Camarata on Aug 18, 2020 12:39:00 PM

Introducing Demographics for Launch Pathway

By Tony Camarata and Morgan Atkins

Demographic data is one of the oldest forms of strategic planning data available. The inaugural US Census was in 1790, which is relatively recent considering the history of census data. Today, demographic data is a basic commodity with detailed information being available on the Census Bureau's website. You can also get this kind of information from numerous established businesses or from a trade association.

While easy access to demographic data is convenient, simply having the information is often not enough. Businesses and organizations looking to use demographic data to find opportunities for growth will need the data to be filtered and organized in a way that makes it useful. This is especially the case for hospitals and healthcare systems.

Healthcare Analysts are in Short Supply: How to Overcome the Challenge

Posted by Lee Ann Lambdin on Aug 6, 2020 6:30:00 AM
by Lee Ann Lambdin

I hired a great analyst a few years ago. She was skilled with database programs, understood the complexities of the healthcare market, and had previously been a medical records coderin short, she was very talented. The longer she was in her position, the more our state data was reported accurately and on a reliable schedule. It was a huge win for me and my team!

Recognizing her capabilities, I asked if she could start running "quarterly standard reports" that present key findings which could influence how our planning, marketing, and business development departments would function and what we would focus on in the weeks and months to come. These quarterly updates would be high-level summaries of our market landscape and would cover everything from our hospital’s market share, trended volume, competitor positions, product lines, payor mix, patient migration patterns and more.

5 Ways to Increase Organizational Alignment: It Starts with Data

Posted by Tony Camarata on Nov 22, 2019 8:15:00 AM

By Tony Camarata

Is your healthcare system failing to meet annual strategic goals due to a lack of organizational alignment? Studies show that the highest-performing healthcare organizations have a strategic plan that sets a clear direction for all functional teams. This plan succeeds or fails depending upon organization-wide understanding of the goals, tactics, and measurable outcomes needed to fulfill the strategic goals. Conversely, if your team is unable to establish alignment, your health system risks stagnation and year-over-year frustration about your inability to meet goals and expectations.  
Here’s a look at how to improve your hospital’s organizational alignment from top to bottom and why getting this right could be the key to meeting your annual strategic goals.

Posted by Tony Camarata on Aug 6, 2019 9:25:00 AM

By Tony Camarata

Discussions around “big data” — what it is and why it’s useful — are infiltrating every arena of the healthcare space. Strategic planning, marketing, business development, patient care, and health outcomes are looking to big data for answers. hi 

While the intelligence gained from big data analysis is valuable, there are compelling reasons to believe that working with the right data is far more important than simply having access to, and analysis of, big data.
