It offers programs rooted in best practices in three key areas: best practices research; software tools; and management and advisory services. Its best practices research memberships serve as the foundation of intellectual property across all programs and are focused on identifying best-demonst...morerated management practices, critiquing widely-followed but ineffective practices, and analyzing emerging trends within the health care and education industries. Its software tools programs leverage this intellectual capital, allowing members to pair their own operational data with the best practices insights from its research through web-based business intelligence and software tools founded upon the critical insights of the industry. Its management and advisory services programs assist member institutions efforts to adopt and implement best practices to improve their own performance. The Company competes in some discrete programs and for discretionary expenditures against health care-focused, education-focused, and multi-industry firms. The health care industry is highly regulated and is subject to changing political, legislative, regulatory, and other influences.lessless
