Through Rimmasch’s guidance Health Catalyst rolled out nine technology services and solutions aimed at addressing the needs of hospitals and health systems around the globe, which continue to be utilized and effective to this day.

As a result of the innovative solutions, the following healthcare organizations, among others, were able to tackle their COVID-19-related clinical, operational, and financial challenges, while achieving and sustaining high quality patient care.

  • Paso Del Norte Health Information Exchange (PHIX) and Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) improved data exchange to support safe, effective transfer of patients to alternative care sites during a COVID-19 surge.
  • Albany Med was able to deploy and integrate real-time dashboards for monitoring all COVID-19 activity, including patient testing and activity, care requirements, and supply utilization, in under 16 hours.
  • Allina Health was able to effectively track and manage COVID-19 immunization for its sizeable workforce. The organization needed to confirm the immunization status for its more than 28,000 employees, 6,000 associated and employed physicians, and its on-site contracted services. In just three weeks, Allina Health obtained comprehensive COVID-19 immunization data for more than 28,000 employees, 6,000 associated and employed physicians, and all contracted services; received confirmation of COVID-19 immunization (or accommodation) for the entire Allina Health workforce; and saw $50,000 indirect labor cost savings, the result of integrating and automating COVID-19 immunization data.

In recommending Rimmasch for this achievement, Health Catalyst CEO Dan Burton said, “Holly leads with innovative thinking and with her eye on the Quadruple Aim of improving community health. Her commitment to the sustainable improvement of hospital operations and patient care, even in the toughest of times, led to frameworks and products that can assist healthcare systems in times of emergency but also provide long-term strategies as we work to shape a better healthcare future.”

Health Catalyst is proud to celebrate Rimmasch and is grateful for her mission-driven leadership as we work to deliver massive, measurable, data-informed healthcare improvement.
