Health Catalyst Congratulates Texas Children's Hospital on Winning National Leadership Award

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 10/16/13 -- Health Catalyst, the leader in healthcare data warehousing and analytics, today congratulated Texas Children's Hospital (TCH) on winning the 2013 Transformational Leadership Award from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and the American Hospital Association (AHA).

In announcing the award, CHIME recognized TCH for its "data-driven approach to care improvement (that) is helping to improve patient care, increase productivity and lower costs, saving TCH millions of dollars in direct benefits while unlocking crucial data trapped in its electronic health records system." TCH uses the Health Catalyst Late-Binding enterprise data warehouse (EDW) to drive its outcome-improvement efforts with immediate access to near real-time data from the hospital's electronic health record (EHR) and other internal and external systems.

The annual CHIME-AHA award honors an organization that has excelled in developing and deploying transformational information technology that improves the delivery of care and streamlines administrative services. The award is given to the organization's CIO and CEO, who recognize the need for a strong partnership between its technology team and executive leadership.

TCH, consistently ranked among the top children's hospitals in the nation, realized $4.5 million of direct benefits this year as a result of just four of their initiatives involving its EDW and related streamlined reporting, according to CHIME. The program is led by the hospital's Chief Information Officer Myra Davis, and TCH President and CEO Mark A. Wallace.

"Texas Children's Hospital's success in nurturing a data-driven culture of continuous quality improvement is a bellwether for hospitals across the nation working to adjust to value-based healthcare," said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. "Thanks to the visionary leadership of Mark Wallace and the brilliant execution of Myra Davis and her team, TCH today has one of the nation's most advanced systems for improving quality and streamlining administrative and operations services. We're honored to have assisted TCH in this effort."

The hospital is nationally ranked among the nation's top children's hospitals by U.S. News & World Report and Parents magazine.
