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.
