Salt Lake City – June 14, 2016 – New customer wins, heightened industry recognition and noteworthy customer successes have strategically positioned Health Catalyst for significant market expansion in the second half of 2016.

A leader in healthcare data warehousing, analytics and outcomes improvement, Health Catalyst today announced the addition of several new health system clients, some of the seven new clients signed in the last six months. The additional customers increased the size of Health Catalyst’s client base to over 250 hospitals and more than 3,000 clinics that collectively care for over 70 million Americans each year.

New clients include:

  • Alberta Health Services (AHS), Canada’s first and largest province-wide, fully-integrated health system, responsible for delivering health services to the over 4 million people in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and the Northwest Territories.  AHS consists of 106 hospitals, 5 psychiatric facilities, and equity partnership in 42 primary care physician networks
  • Health Share, Oregon’s largest Medicaid coordinated care organization, serves over 230,000 Oregonians in the Portland Metro area. Health Share coordinates health plans and services at the local level with a mission of achieving ongoing health system transformation, health equity, and the best possible health for each member. Health Share was founded and is governed by eleven organizations serving Medicaid members in our region.
  • King’s Daughters Medical Center, a locally controlled, not-for-profit 465-bed hospital that offers cardiac, medical, surgical, pediatric, rehabilitative, psychiatric, cancer, neurological, pain care, wound care and home care services. The hospital ranks fourth in the state of Kentucky in admissions and with number of employees at 3,200.
  • MemorialCare Health System, a nonprofit integrated delivery system throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties, Calif. that includes six top hospitals, two medical groups, a health plan, and numerous outpatient health centers, imaging centers and surgery centers.

The plan covers kids, teens, pregnant women, and adults who are eligible for the Texas Managed Care Medicaid program called STAR Kids, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). It includes more than 1,100 doctors, 3,200 specialists, 60 hospitals, and other health resources.

“Health Catalyst is proud that many of our nation’s most prestigious and forward-looking health systems have selected us as their partner to help deliver the improved quality and lower costs required to thrive in our evolving healthcare environment,” said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. “We look forward to welcoming more provider organizations into the Health Catalyst fold in 2016, and we’re eager to help them deliver the kinds of significant outcome improvements that many of our current clients have achieved.”

Lives and Dollars Saved Through Outcomes Improvement

Contributing both to the company’s sense of mission and its strong sales performance, existing Health Catalyst customers have substantiated hundreds of millions of dollars in cost savings, as well as life-saving quality improvements through their use of the company’s Late Binding™ Data Warehousing and Analytics platform. The platform incorporates data from disparate sources across the care continuum – electronic health records (EHR), clinical and financial systems, payer systems, and other external systems – and supports multi-disciplinary teams in evaluating, comparing and improving clinical, financial and operational performance across their networks.

In recent months, noteworthy outcome improvements that added to the company’s 73 documented customer success stories included:

  • $125 million saved in one year. Allina Health is a $3.7 billion not-for-profit organization whose more than 90 clinics, 12 hospitals and related healthcare services provide care for nearly 1 million people across Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Allina’s data-driven performance improvement effort in 2015 yielded a strong bottom line including $43 million in productivity improvements and $30 million saved by reducing clinical variation.
  • Sepsis deaths cut to half the national average. Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, an award-winning 177-bed community hospital near New Orleans, leveraged best-practice care protocols and advanced analytics and a new approach to engage clinicians to reduce sepsis mortality by 18 percent in just six months, to less than half the national average. Thibodaux also reduced average variable cost per sepsis patient by 7.3 percent, lowered their length of stay by 1 day, and increased sepsis patient satisfaction by 7 percent to reach the 93rd percentile, nationally.
  • Better care delivery for the riskiest pediatric diabetes patients. Houston-based Texas Children’s Hospital, the nation’s largest pediatric facility, used analytics and education to drive better care for children with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a complex and serious complication of diabetes. Changes included assigning 81 percent of DKA patients to a diabetic care unit and core diabetic nurse (CDN); a 17 percent relative increase in DKA patients receiving an evidence-based evaluation and order sets; a 19 percent relative increase in DKA patients receiving IV insulin within one hour of order; and a 33 percent relative decrease in length of stay for DKA patients.
  • 16 percent fewer pneumonia deaths. MultiCare Health System, one of Washington state’s largest not-for-profit health systems with five hospitals and 130 locations, used Health Catalyst’s pneumonia application combined with a team of clinical and analytics experts to drive a 16 percent reduction in the pneumonia mortality (compared to a 1.7% improvement in pneumonia mortality within the National Top Quartile of U.S. hospitals during the same period); a 24 percent reduction in pneumonia readmissions (compared to a 2 percent reduction in pneumonia readmissions for the National Top Quartile); and a 2 percent decrease in length-of-stay for pneumonia patients.
