Data warehousing and clinical analytics platform to accelerate improvements in clinical quality and operational efficiency

SALT LAKE CITY and MILWAUKEE – November 21, 2013Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, one of the nation’s top pediatric facilities, has selected Health Catalyst, the leader in healthcare data warehousing and analytics, to help improve quality and lower costs in response to emerging payment pressures.

Health Catalyst’s Late-Binding™ Data Warehouse and Analytics platform will give Children’s Hospital leaders and clinicians a unified view of clinical, financial and performance data from electronic health records and other enterprise applications across Children’s Hospital’s network of hospitals and clinics. Armed with near real-time data and powerful self-service analytics, Children’s Hospital will be able to more quickly identify and implement the discrete changes in process and workflow required for success under value-based healthcare.

“Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is committed to providing the best and safest care for those we serve,” said Michael Nauman, MBA, CIO and Corporate Vice President of Enterprise Performance Management for Children’s Hospital.  “To adjust to value-based care and services, we need to rapidly transform our plethora of data into actionable information for decision-makers across our health system. We’ve been impressed by the transformation that Health Catalyst has driven at other pediatric facilities, and we look forward to working with them to enhance our analytical capabilities in support of our vision of the healthiest kids in the nation.”

“To thrive in our evolving value-based healthcare system, hospitals need to quickly make sense of and analyze the huge volumes of data stored in their disparate systems, identify opportunities for quality improvement and cost savings, and then enable their caregivers to take appropriate action,” said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. “We are thrilled that Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin has chosen Health Catalyst to build the foundation for that transformation, adding to our client base of leading pediatric facilities nationwide.”

Built for today’s needs while adaptable for tomorrow’s, Health Catalyst’s data warehousing and analytics platform normalizes disparate data sources and enables rich meta data management that facilitates data access, discovery, analysis and reporting. The approach not only is faster and more agile than traditional “early-binding” enterprise data warehouses, but it also addresses the need for clinical analysis of near-real time information to track and improve care for whole populations of patients.
