arrive at insights that can lead to improved patient care and outcomes.
Dashboards provide clients with short time-to-value solutions that meet
immediate needs around disease management, operational efficiency,
costing and profitability and quality.

Performance monitoring within the
hospital can be accomplished through strategic partnerships between
finance and operations. These partnerships serve the organization well
and lead to financial steadiness. Learn how Perficient is helping health
systems implement innovative performance management solutions that
instill a common language of accountability.
“Rising customer-centric business methods and the impact of heightened
regulations have led healthcare organizations to reassess whether their
back-end systems are efficiently meeting front-end demand,” said Steven
Scott, general manager of Perficient’s healthcare practice. “As
companies react to these challenges, clinical and financial data must be
properly examined, so executives can establish accurate cost models and
make informed decisions. Perficient’s vast portfolio of healthcare
assets, including the High Performance Costing Expressway on display at
ANI 2014, enables clients to leverage technology to manage and monitor
both their own systems and the member experience.”
