SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Catalyst, a leader in healthcare data warehousing and analytics, was recognized as the enterprise BI vendor whose solutions make the most compelling contribution to better outcomes in a report titled "Enterprise Healthcare BI: The Search for Outcomes," published this month by the respected research firm, KLAS.
The report differentiates 11 enterprise BI vendors based on client reviews, insights and outcomes, and marks the third time in three years that Health Catalyst has been recognized as a top performer in the healthcare BI market by KLAS.
"Health Catalyst is seen as the most consistent and effective BI vendor in achieving outcomes," wrote the report's authors, Joe Van De Graaf and April Ridgeway. "[Health Catalyst] consistently demonstrates a high-touch, consultative approach, using their products as facilitators of engagement and deeper work."
KLAS' report highlights the shift in emphasis in the market from reporting to delivering actionable insights and driving clinical, operational and financial outcomes. According to KLAS, Health Catalyst's "strategy of prioritizing client relationships and outcomes results in the highest client reviews of any vendor for insights and outcomes."
As the report explains, insights and improved outcomes result from "a proactive, customer-focused approach" that goes beyond simply implementing BI technology. Rather, top-performing vendors like Health Catalyst employ "a disciplined, holistic approach to help clients achieve analytics victories that would often not be possible otherwise." As Health Catalyst's 58 published case studies attest, the company employs a methodology for achieving outcomes that combines analytics, clinical content and organizational structures to help clients create a data-driven culture of improvement.
KLAS also recognized Health Catalyst's "clinical leadership and healthcare focus," reporting that these factors were praised by the company's interviewed customers. The report emphasizes Health Catalyst's commitment to partnering with clients to drive results. This includes employing "high-quality resources with clinical expertise who are invested in client success" and who "work beside clients to build an analytics framework and approach to suit their needs."
KLAS interviewed 394 providers to review the performance of BI vendors in healthcare and highlight those who contribute the most value in the eyes of their customers.
