A recent NDIS project

Benchmarking financial performance against the NDIA support worker cost model (2020)

In July 2020 the NDIA released the Disability Support Worker Cost Model 2020-21. Allowing a greater level of benchmarking for NDIS providers than ever before.

Using the provider's YTD rostering data Darren led the detailed analysis of income and costs relative to the NDIS price guide and cost model. The analysis identified areas of competitive advantage, and opportunities for improvement. Darren presented charts, analysis and commentary to the executive, as well as recommendations for strategic and operational improvement. As well as learnings about cost structures, the analysis also provided insights into invoicing risks and opportunities for improvement.

A recent strategy & performance project

Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) Board Performance Dashboard (2020)

CALHN brings together five hospitals: and a range of specialised community and clinical health services, with turnover of $2.7 billion per annum.  Working alongside the data and analytics team, Darren led a project to develop a new KPI dashboard for the CALHN Board,
