SALT LAKE CITY and GULFPORT, Miss., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Memorial Hospital at Gulfport (Memorial), ranked the best hospital in Mississippi by US News & World Report, has selected Health Catalyst's Late-Binding™ Data Warehouse and Analytics platform to drive faster improvements in quality and more efficient overall performance.
The award-winning 445-bed not-for-profit health system has earned a reputation as a bastion of quality care in a state that ranks 50th in overall health, according to America's Health Rankings. Memorial will use Health Catalyst's healthcare-specific enterprise data warehouse (EDW) and analytics applications to build on its successful quality improvement program.
"Memorial has driven significant quality improvements over the years but with ever-increasing amounts of clinical data we're going to need the most advanced applications to analyze and understand all of the data we're collecting and to build that knowledge into our decision-making process," said Gene Thomas, Chief Information Officer of Memorial. "We reviewed every approach on the market and selected Health Catalyst due to their expertise and history of delivering what they say they'll deliver, and doing it exponentially faster than anyone else."
Health Catalyst will provide, for the first time, a unified view of clinical and performance data from Memorial's McKesson and Allscripts electronic health records (EHR) and other enterprise applications across the health system. With that timely, actionable information consolidated into a single source, Health Catalyst's content-driven analytics applications will quickly reveal opportunities for improvements that drive better quality at lower cost.
"We're honored to have been selected by Memorial Hospital at Gulfport to be their data warehouse and analytics partner," said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. "We look forward to helping Memorial take their quality program to the next level so clinicians and administrators alike can use data and analytics to improve their overall performance and quality of care."
Groundbreaking Healthcare Analytics Platform
The Health Catalyst platform was recently heralded by KLAS as a "newer and more effective way to approach EDW" that "often gives clients some tangible results in three to four months" (Healthcare Analytics: Making Sense of the Puzzle Pieces, January 2014). The platform normalizes disparate data sources and enables rich metadata management for data access, discovery, analysis and reporting. The late-binding approach not only is faster and more agile than "early-binding" EDWs common to other industries; it also addresses the need for clinical analysis of near-real time information to track and improve care for whole populations of patients.
The Health Catalyst platform includes a framework enabling rapid development of hundreds of new analytics applications to solve both basic and complex reporting needs. Health Catalyst analytics applications to be deployed initially at Memorial include Population Explorer, Patient Satisfaction Explorer, Financial Health Explorer, Readmission Explorer, Revenue Cycle Explorer, Patient Flow Explorer, Labor Management Explorer, Practice Management Explorer, Comorbidity Analyzer, Regulatory Explorer, Readmission Predictor and Executive Dashboard.
Organizations that deploy the full Health Catalyst platform are positioned to move to the top level of the Analytics Adoption Model, a road map for the industry's adoption of analytics technology.
Advanced Training by HORNE LLP
Memorial will deploy the Health Catalyst platform with the support of HORNE LLP's Advanced Training Program in Healthcare Delivery Improvement. The program trains staff in the theory and methodology of continuous quality improvement. The program is a sister-program to Dr. Brent James' internationally recognized Advanced Training Program at Intermountain Healthcare. HORNE LLP, a Health Catalyst strategic consultant, is a CPA and business advisory firm that has specialized in health care accounting and health care consulting for 50 years. Memorial has been a client of HORNE's for more than 30 years.
