SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 -- Health Catalyst, a leader in healthcare data warehousing and analytics, received a high early- performance score among companies noted as having a healthcare-specific analytics platform in the report, Healthcare Analytics: Making Sense of the Puzzle Pieces, published this month by the respected research firm, KLAS. Health Catalyst achieved an early performance score of 90 on a scale of 100 in the report.
Heralded as a "newer and more effective way to approach EDW" that "often gives clients some tangible results in three to four months," Health Catalyst received favorable marks in a category that also included Deloitte (Recombinant), Explorys, Healthcare Data Works, IBM, Information Builders, Microsoft, Oracle, Premier, SAP (Sybase), and Teradata.
Health Catalyst's KLAS recognition follows recent accolades from Chilmark Research, which assigned Health Catalyst its highest overall rating in the Chilmark 2013 Clinical Analytics for Population Health Market Trends Report, and from Gartner, which named the company a "Cool Vendor for Healthcare Providers 2013" in its latest annual review of healthcare IT solutions.
KLAS' high marks of Health Catalyst are highlighted in what it calls an emerging category of enterprise data warehousing (EDW) and analytics platform solutions that are specifically designed for the unique challenges of healthcare. The nature of KLAS reporting is to provide market analysis based on the feedback from multiple healthcare organizations and KLAS notes that Health Catalyst is the only vendor in the emerging category of Healthcare Analytics Solution Platforms with "enough live clients validated by KLAS for an early performance score -- (and) reviews are highly positive."
Health Catalyst's Late-Binding Data Warehouse and Analytics platform, with more than 100 content-driven analytics applications, is "helping to redefine what EDW means in healthcare in a good way," according to the KLAS report. Health Catalyst takes "a fresh and palatable approach to healthcare EDW that challenges traditional thinking and long projects," the report added. "Initial clients see benefits beyond EDW and herald the vendor for introducing needed analytics paradigm changes in the organization."
"We appreciate the comprehensive research completed by KLAS and we are honored that their independent review highlighted our clients' successes in utilizing our platform and applications to improve care and efficiency," said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. "Our clients' success and satisfaction is the fundamental way we measure our effectiveness. We're grateful to see third-party validation from KLAS that this is consistently occurring."
