Using our clinical, administrative, and measurement expertise, our team consults with health system leaders to shape all phases of improvement programs.


Ursa Health’s innovative platform transforms the big data from your EMR into information and action swiftly and without disruption to clinical practice.


Effective improvement work requires the right information. In our experience, this information has to be customized to each setting and question.

Flexible Deployment

Ursa Health adapts to the structure of your reporting environment and can be run in the cloud or within your firewall, managed by our team or yours.

Natural Language Processing

HCPCS/CPT codes are not enough. Ursa Health combines these with natural language processing of clinical data to understand delivery of care.

Ursa Health In Action

Ursa Health emerged from a program launched in 2013 within a complex, integrated delivery system to meet the urgent challenge of improving delivery of care. We developed an innovative analytics approach that leveraged data to customize the information that clinical teams and system leaders needed to answer their improvement questions. Today, these analytics have been eagerly adopted by a wide range of clinical specialties and are driving over 100 redesign projects and programs. Ursa Health’s technology-enabled services deliver a proven solution with software that enables health systems to access this method without dedicated programmers.
