The mission of Vital Statistics Consulting LLC is to improve public health, healthcare quality, and patient safety. We generate real-world evidence from the evaluation of policy and programmatic interventions, healthcare services, and clinical processes to help market stakeholders—which include inpatient facilities, medical practices, healthcare organizations, governments, and insurers—make more informed business decisions.
We advance excellence
Healthcare quality, patient safety, and institutional cost-savings are the hallmarks of our solutions. We identify intervention targets through meticulous systematic analysis of root causes. We then develop, implement, and evaluate customized evidence-based quality improvement initiatives that are linked to patient outcomes, process efficiency, clinical-staff morale, and costs.
We develop leaders
Our distinctive research-education service, delivered in person or remotely, cultivates critical knowledge and skill in the next generation of healthcare executives and clinical leaders. We offer a Clinician-Scholar Career Development program, which optimizes DNP potential for hospitals that are on the Pathway to Excellence or Magnet Journey, and a degree-completion service for DNP candidates. We furnish one-on-one and small-group training in research design & methods, healthcare analytics, and scientific writing.
We enhance culture
We are committed to establishing contemporary professional standards and managerial practices from the bedside to the C-suite. Our Nurse Practice Environment solution guarantees an enduring culture whose patient-centered principles translate to fewer medical errors, reduced risk of adverse events, and substantial cost savings.
We know data
Our expertise cuts across multiple domains of Real World Evidence. Our consultants are doctorally prepared data scientists with expertise in policy analysis, outcomes research, implementation science, and economic impact analysis. Measurement is our métier. We develop or enhance measures of quality, process, cost, and effectiveness to strengthen organizational and clinical decision-making, improve population health management, and target community health programs’ services.
We get you to the finish line
The dissertation or scholarly paper is the final hurdle in a years-long journey to doctoral qualification. Our degree completion services assist PhD and DNP candidates with study design, analysis—quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods—interpretation, and professional presentation.
