Deliverables for Project Success

  We work with clients at various stages of analytics maturity.  Some organizations have already developed well-conceived data warehouses and want to incorporate advanced analytics or new algorithms.  Others are at earlier stages of data maturity and need help navigating the journey from current state to future vision.  As an illustration, the tangible work that we do to help our clients often falls into strategy, dashboard, dataset, or algorithm deliverables.

[Keywell] was able to help us inventory our data in legacy systems and parse out data that previously had been challenging to obtain to better understand how our product was bringing value to our customers. Separately, Keywell prototyped new dashboards in a platform new to us and was able to integrate data that was previously unavailable. We valued working with Ashley for her healthcare industry experience, technical knowledge, and ability to help us strategize at a high level while bringing immediate value to the organization.

[Keywell] helped us assess our early analytics strategy and data needs and subsequently helped us revamp our reporting systems to improve our team and customer analytics. We were able to better quantify the impact of our platform in connecting individuals with social care needs to organizations that can help. Keywell was uniquely capable of applying advanced analytics methods to our data, developing a model that combined findhelp and population health data to demonstrate predicted improvement of healthcare outcomes with increased access to healthy food. Keywell also helped us develop interactive dashboards that we display on our public website for researchers and customers to analyze search volume and trends. I would highly recommend Keywell as an analytics services partner.

Tom Fisk is wonderfully reliable, insightful, efficient, and effective. In our experience working together, I was grateful for and impressed by Tom’s careful listening and thoughtful contributions to our work. He is an expert in his field and wonderfully collaborative. Time and again, Tom demonstrated a highest-level mastery of the integrated technology domain, related markets, and equally high-level skill in communicating with other organizational leaders. If I were to get the chance to work again with Tom Fisk, I’d take it in a heartbeat.
