Based on its recent analysis of the healthcare data analytics market, Frost & Sullivan recognises BroadReach with the 2016 Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) Frost & Sullivan Award for Visionary Innovation Leadership. BroadReach stands out in the competitive marketplace by employing cutting-edge data analytics software and incorporating valuable operational tools in its software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, BroadReach Vantage.
BroadReach Vantage includes robust analytic tools to manage and find insight in data, including data aggregation, dashboards, predictive modelling and “what-if” analysis. It integrates data from disparate sources, including customer-supplied data, user-generated data, and over 4,500 BroadReach indicators, which refers to broad socioeconomic data collated from public sources such as the World Bank and World Health Organization (WHO). It then allows the data to be broken down and examined from multiple perspectives, as required by each client.
BroadReach Vantage also supports teams’ efforts to act on these evidence-based insights with effective programs and clinical services. The platform incorporates operational tools best-practice workflow applications, real-time team collaboration and automated reporting to increase the capacity of teams and improve service delivery.
Many BroadReach solutions are used by clients working within SSA, including NGOs, donor organisations, development agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and United States Agency for International Development (USAID), governments in emerging economies, private and public health systems and commercial pharmaceuticals companies.
“The BroadReach Vantage platform comprises data-driven modules for strategy, planning, operations, reporting, and collaboration. As all graphs and statistics are highly interactive, users can select relevant key indicators from the database and analyse them accordingly,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Caeri Dunnell. “Another important feature is the high-impact modelling to optimise resource allocation and introduce focused interventions.”
Meanwhile, BroadReach has aligned itself with the Cognitive Era Mega Trend by utilising advanced analytics, machine learning, predictive modelling, and natural language generation in the platform. Natural language generation is used to translate graphs and statistics to words, giving clients deeper written insight and simplifying the analysis of complex graphs.
BroadReach is presently in the early adopter phase of growth; however, in the next five years, it is expected to move into the fast followers’ phase. Given the interdependencies among multiple areas that affect health and wellbeing, such as education and employment, and the company’s holistic approach to development, BroadReach is well positioned to support an even wider range of clients as the leading solution provider for the development industry.
Dunnell noted,“The company aims to increase the reach and impact of its BroadReach Vantage platform to 20,000 global leaders by 2020. The long-term goal of the company is to become the industry standard in maximising the return on investment of billions of dollars spent each year in global development.”
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated the understanding to leverage global Mega Trends and to integrate its vision into processes to achieve strategic excellence. The award recognises the efficacy of the recipient’s innovative process and the impact it has on business and society at large.
