SALT LAKE CITY – MAY 21, 2015 – Health Catalyst, a leader in healthcare data warehousing and analytics, today congratulated Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer Holly Rimmasch on being named one of Utah’s top woman executives by Utah Business. In its May 2015 cover story, the magazine praised the award winners as “dynamic, influential leaders shaking up Utah’s business scene.” Among several hundred nominees, winners were selected for their contributions to the Utah business community, for their professional accomplishments, and for giving back to the community. Rimmasch will accept the 2015 “30 Women to Watch” award today in a ceremony at The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.

“We congratulate Holly on this well-deserved honor,” said Dan Burton, Chief Executive Officer of Health Catalyst. “She is a pioneer in clinical improvement initiatives whose expertise about the healthcare setting and healthcare operations has contributed to the health of people across Utah and beyond. We’re lucky to have her on our team.”

Rimmasch brings nearly 30 years of clinical and healthcare management experience to Health Catalyst, supporting its mission of eliminating waste and systematically standardizing best practices across US hospitals and health systems. She has spent the last 17 years pioneering systems for improving clinical care through implementation of clinical and operational best practices, most recently as an Assistant Vice President at Intermountain HealthCare responsible for Clinical Services.

In her three years as a senior executive at Health Catalyst, Rimmasch has been instrumental in driving the company’s growth and maturing its product offerings. In particular, she has spearheaded the creation of Health Catalyst’s Three Systems approach to performance improvement: a combination of 1) data warehousing and analytics technology, 2) organizational change management, and 3) the consistent integration of evidence-based best practices into everyday care delivery.

“I am extremely grateful to Utah Business for naming me one of Utah’s Women to Watch, especially in light of the amazing work done by the other executives on the list,” said Rimmasch. “To the extent that I’ve been successful, however, the credit really belongs to our extraordinary clients, whose commitment to making US healthcare a better, more efficient and cost-effective system for all Americans is truly something to watch.”

A Utahn by birth, Rimmasch received a bachelor’s of science from Brigham Young University and a master’s of science from the University of Utah.
