- Think Local. Many strategic decision and predictions in healthcare are based on national metrics. However, healthcare is local. Different sub-markets have different population health needs and habits, and are dynamic. Trilliant Health gives health providers local-level data for decision making.
- Dynamic Planning. Many strategic decisions in healthcare are made from inpatient data, which represents only a fraction of services and revenue. Additionally, that data informs year-long strategic planning, with no adjustments unless there is a crisis like COVID-19. Trilliant helps health systems engage in dynamic planning, making decisions based on monthly rather than yearly data.
- Insights for Entrepreneurs. There’s an old saying that two things in life are certain: death and taxes. Hal adds two more certainties to that list for founders: it’s going take more money than you thought, and more time than you thought.
