Market insight and analysis

LaingBuisson provides expertise on market structures, policy and strategy across healthcare, social care and education

About LaingBuisson

LaingBuisson has been serving clients for over 30 years with insights, analysis and data on market structures, policy and strategy across healthcare, social care and education. Today it is a leading business intelligence provider built around its data capabilities.  Many years of survey data, often with valuable time series, insights from consulting projects, long term relationships with providers, governments and regulators and accumulated experience have created a unique repository of knowledge. LaingBuisson is the chosen provider of independent sector healthcare market data to the UK Government’s Office for National Statistics.

That knowledge is shared daily online and in print in the LaingBuisson journals, in the market reports and at conferences and seminars. Our experienced consultants are a key part of that knowledge transfer.  They execute strategy and management consulting projects for clients, author our market reports, contribute to our journals and are content leads for our conferences. Supported by our research and data teams and with access to our extensive proprietary data and data collection capabilities, this means they are subject matter experts, often with an extensive network of CEO level relationships, enabling them to quickly and cost effectively add value.

LaingBuisson continues to focus on delivering content to its clients, increasingly digitally, either through mobile-friendly websites, dashboards to download reports and the supporting data in Excel, social media platforms or via our business intelligence portal iLaingBuisson®, which integrates all of our content and gives access to our cloud-based data tools.  Our strategy is to focus exclusively on the business-to-business market, targeting senior executives and decision makers, and over time for the key markets and geographies offer insightful business intelligence from:

  • in-depth market reports
  • relevant market datasets and provider directory
  • conferences to create market specific networks and to stimulate discussion of the key themes and trends
  • journals covering market specific developments
  • strategy consulting projects for more detailed analysis
