Keith joined Stroudwater Associates in 2001 and has helped develop Stroudwater’s data-driven approach to client engagements. He has expertise in the management, analysis, and presentation of healthcare data to assist in strategic planning, and uses state-of-the-art Geographic Information System (GIS) and data visualization software to interpret and analyze the geographic components and distribution of patient records, utilization estimates and projections, market share, and demographic data, adding insight to a hospital’s market position and highlighting areas of risk and opportunity. He has developed innovative approaches to studying a healthcare organization’s standing, including patient distribution by clinical service line and drive-time analysis. In conjunction with Stroudwater’s strategic planning and rural teams, Keith uses multiple public and private data sources to define and develop hospital markets. A major focus of his work is helping decision-makers see meaning in their operational data by using emerging information visualization tools and techniques.
Keith holds a Certificate in Geographic Information Systems from the Department of Geography-Anthropology at the University of Southern Maine. He attended Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, and has a BA in English and Political Science from Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
