Transforming healthcare is our passion

Health Catalyst was formed by a group of healthcare veterans with vast data warehousing and quality improvement experience. Our founders and executives collaborated for nearly a decade with Dr. David A. Burton, known for revolutionizing clinical process models using analytics. During development, they faced numerous hurdles in the quest to develop a data warehouse that could handle the complexities unique to healthcare data.

We’ve figured out how to use technology to unify data.
And we’ve seen the results.

After determining that the predominant approaches to data modeling weren’t effective for healthcare data, they discovered the solution, which is now known as the Adaptive Data Architecture. Using a late-binding bus architecture, Catalyst’s adaptive data model is agile, flexible, and can be implemented in a matter of weeks compared to the months or years traditional approaches require. Today at Health Catalyst, you’ll work with a team of experts who know that healthcare needs to change—and have made the change it needs a reality.

Our founders came from one of the top healthcare systems in the United States. Early on, they saw where the healthcare industry needed to go. They built their own data warehouse, but realized it wasn’t sufficient to create the kind of fundamental changes healthcare required. They needed to be able to help their clients spot the trends, map out a plan and implement process and organizational changes to make sustainable improvements. After years of false starts, they achieved a breakthrough that is the proven healthcare data warehouse available to you today.

In the past, a lack of data stood in the way of better care. Now the opposite is true. Healthcare is inundated with data. Patient records, patient conditions, co-morbidities, changes in scientific flow. These complexities don’t exist outside of healthcare. But they’re a way of life inside it. We’ve figured out how to use technology to unify all that data. And we’ve seen the results.

We’ve seen everyone from hospital administrators to doctors get excited about having near real-time access to a single source of truth. We’ve seen faces light up as they move beyond when the reports will come to what the reports reveal. And we’ve seen their passion when they learn how to use data to improve care. That drive to do right by the patients and the payers, to deliver the right treatment at the right time, is their passion. And their passion is our passion.
