Healthcare Analytics Innovator Jumps to Inc. 500 List After 3 Years on Inc. 5000, with 3-Year Sales Growth of 998%

SALT LAKE CITY, August 17, 2016Inc. magazine today ranked Health Catalyst No. 384 on its 35th annual Inc. 500 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

A leader in healthcare data warehousing, analytics and outcomes improvement, Health Catalyst’s sales growth of 998 percent from 2012 to 2015 launched the company onto the Inc. 500 for the first time after three straight years on the Inc. 5000 list. The lists represent a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses.

“We are honored to be named among the nation’s fastest growing companies, and we attribute our growth to our customers’ success in using Health Catalyst’s analytics platform to systemically improve clinical and financial outcomes,” said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. “Enabling this clinical and financial improvement is central to our company’s mission.”

The Health Catalyst Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) and Analytics platform forms the information foundation for value-based performance at some of the nation’s largest health systems, serving more than 70 million patients overall. The company’s Inc. 500 ranking is one of several accolades received in the previous 12 months including:

  • The Glassdoor “Employees’ Choice Award” recognizing the Best Places to Work in the nation in 2016. Glassdoor ranked Health Catalyst the No. 7 best place to work in the small- and medium-sized business (SMB) category, which includes U.S. companies with fewer than 1,000 employees.
  • Rock Health’s “Best Place to Work in Digital Health” award
  • The “Gallup 2016 Great Workplace Award.” Health Catalyst is the first company in the healthcare IT market to win this prestigious award recognizing high levels of employee engagement
  • A “Best Place to Work in Healthcare” award from Modern Healthcare, for the fourth year in a row
  • A Utah Business “Fast 50” award, in recognition of percentage growth in revenue during 2015
  • The Salt Lake Tribune’s “Top Workplaces Award” recognizing the 60 small, medium and large firms that received the highest ratings from their employees, based on a survey by WorkplaceDynamics

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” said Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.


The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2012. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2015.

Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at
