KPI Ninja to Bolster Health Catalyst’s Data Platform Capabilities, Maximize Functionality of Analytics Applications, and Speed-up Time-to-Value
Salt Lake City, Utah – February 22, 2022 – Health Catalyst, Inc. (“Health Catalyst,” Nasdaq: HCAT), a leading provider of data and analytics technology and services to healthcare organizations, today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire KPI Ninja, a Lincoln, Nebraska-based provider of interoperability solutions and population health analytics.
KPI Ninja’s end-to-end technology solution combines the agility of a centralized platform with interoperability and analytic technology. Health Catalyst believes KPI Ninja’s powerful and flexible event-driven data processing capabilities, a natural complement to Health Catalyst’s Data Operating System (DOS™) Platform, will empower customers with the ability to build and customize new services, clinical solutions, and operational tools around their core care systems, without the major refactoring and processing typically required of these systems.
Additionally, Health Catalyst expects KPI Ninja’s ability to seamlessly ingest, aggregate, and analyze varied data sources from inside and outside the hospital, such as FHIR, Hl7 V2, CCDs, flat files, and APIs, will bolster Health Catalyst’s existing data processing capabilities and maximize functionality of Health Catalyst’s Analytics Applications layer. Health Catalyst is committed to enabling KPI Ninja’s focus to be on continued outstanding execution and delivery to existing clients, with its current client support teams and relationships uninterrupted in enabling this focus and execution.
We anticipate that these attributes, together with Health Catalyst, will help ensure data is ready to power insights at every step of the decision-making process, allowing customers to see results faster with greater cost efficiency.
