Analytics, a division of global innovation and development services
company Symphony Teleca Corporation (STC), today announced that it has
been recognized by Gartner in its recent Market Guide. Symphony
Analytics is the only stand-alone, analytics-focused vendor included.
Gartner's recent report, "Market Guide for U.S. Revenue Cycle Management
Applications for Healthcare Providers," includes vendors that offer the
core set of RCM applications for a healthcare enterprise greater than
250 beds, including hospital inpatient and ambulatory services1.
The report urges CFOs and CIOs of healthcare delivery organizations
(HDOs) to ensure that RCM investments address the HDO's requirements for
next-generation process capabilities for fully automated RCM operations,
real-time data, predictive analytics and patient engagement.
RCM is increasingly becoming a way to optimize financial performance in
an integrated health enterprise. With legacy applications and disparate
systems, healthcare providers are tasked with finding strategic ways to
consolidate data and provide necessary inputs for today's
cross-organizational industry models.
"It is critical for providers to leverage the power of data to overcome
the challenges of today's healthcare landscape, but doing so is
difficult with information siloed throughout the organization," said
Paddy Padmanabhan, Senior Vice President and Global Practice
Leader-Healthcare, Symphony Analytics. "Symphony Analytics is focused on
providing the frameworks and expertise in a cloud-based model to help
providers move to an integrated enterprise view of clinical and
financial data using preconfigured solutions. HDOs can now deploy
advanced analytics to increase cash flow from revenue cycle operations,
manage population health and improve patient outcomes without huge
investments in hardware and software. We believe Gartner’s recent report
confirms our position in the market and underscores our commitment to
providing customers with RCM analytics solutions that meet their unique
"The importance of RCM as an enterprise capability to optimize financial
performance is increasing. RCM is a key driver of enterprise process
change, enterprise-level capability creation and business intelligence,"
Gartner Analyst Melanie Meyer reports. "The applications supporting RCM
have evolved from addressing specific aspects of the process into more
integrated tool suites. The need to integrate with other applications
has driven the implementation approach used in the marketplace today,
which, in turn, has spurred vendor innovation.2"
We believe today's announcement points to the success of Symphony
Analytics' Health SymMetrics™ offering, healthcare expertise and
operational excellence as more and more organizations look to the
company to help overcome the biggest challenges of today's healthcare

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
