New York, NY (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Knowledgent, an Industry Information Consultancy, is pleased to announce the addition of Industry Innovator Frank Norman to its leadership team in the firm’s Healthcare practice. Frank has over 27 years of experience in strategic business and technology leadership, having innovated critical solutions to complex business challenges in health care, insurance, banking and consulting industries.
“We believe that Frank’s experiences and track record of accomplishments afford Knowledgent with the thought leadership we know healthcare executives are looking for,” explained Peter Gibson, Knowledgent Co-CEO. “Frank has already led transformational change in Healthcare and is the right person to steer our clients through the optimal course as they transform to a more value-based industry model.”
“We are truly excited to have Frank developing healthcare-specific service offerings that employ modern and emerging techniques and technologies to increase the value of information, and that leverage the full breadth and talent of our consultancy,” remarked Shail Jain, Co-CEO of Knowledgent. “For instance, we believe that applying advanced Information Management and Analytics (IM&A) to cost and quality metrics will reveal opportunities to improve health outcomes and lower overall aggregate costs. We believe industry leaders want to understand how to accomplish this economically.”
“Payors and providers are dealing with significant amounts of change in the face of regulatory reform and industry transformation,” explained Frank Norman. “These firms are confronting a myriad of strategic challenges and opportunities to adapt. We believe that everyone benefits if they both implement new financial and care delivery models simultaneously – and we can help them.”
Knowledgent is a purpose-built Industry Information Consultancy that provides advanced Information Management and Analytical (IM&A) solutions with industry-specific specialization in Financial Services, Life Sciences, Healthcare and Commercial markets. Knowledgent is founded with the mission to help an enterprise become more information centric. We chose this mission because while information has been recognized as a strategic corporate asset, its importance has now reached an inflection point: corporations that don’t learn to innovate through information and compete on analytics will be left behind by those that do. That’s because the extreme volumes of data exhaust now being generated by systems, machines and the Internet represents an unexplored ocean of data with unlimited potential of mining insights that can be used for instructive predictions about products, markets, customers and human behaviors.
Knowledgent is a first-in-category firm, built from the ground up to combine IM&A advisory and delivery capabilities with vertical domain knowledge. While the core capability of our firm is comprised of competencies that address business & IT strategy, business analysis, program management, information management, and big data analytics, the context in which we approach any problem is the vertical industry of our clients.
