Kevin Hamilton is a member of BRG’s Healthcare Performance Improvement practice, where he leads the Applied Analytics and Global Health Performance teams.

He is also leading BRG’s expansion of the HPI team into the international market. In this role, he is charged with adapting the team’s methodology and approach to fit with the challenges that hospitals face around the world. He also serves as a conduit to propagate global best practices across all of BRG’s international healthcare clients.

Mr. Hamilton was instrumental in conceptualizing and developing the precursor to BRG’s DRIVE (Dynamic Rapidly Interactive Visualization Environment) platform. This analytic engine is integral to HPI’s Comprehensive Performance Improvement projects. Used to interrogate and create actionable information from disparate raw transaction data, DRIVE has been transformational in the team’s ability to quickly and precisely address impediments to creating true healthcare value.

A mechanical engineer by formal training, Mr. Hamilton has spent his career working to apply novel analytic methods to healthcare data to improve hospital operations while simultaneously improving the value of healthcare provided to patients. Before joining BRG, he was a senior director for an international consulting firm.
