NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OnFocus Healthcare, Inc., the leading provider of healthcare enterprise performance management solutions, today announced that it has been named to the April 22, 2013 list of "Cool Vendors in Healthcare Providers" by analyst firm Gartner, Inc. OnFocus is one of five vendors evaluated in the report, which recognizes companies that offer innovative and potentially transformative ways for healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) to respond to the stress that arises from wholesale changes in healthcare systems.
According to the report, "HDOs frequently devote great effort and executive time to creating critical strategies, but then fail to translate the strategies into effective, sustained execution and culture change." This "top-of-mind" problem is especially critical as executives strive to lead their organizations rapidly toward more bundled, value-based and accountable care. OnFocus provides a workflow management system for defining, detailing, cascading and tracking the execution of key strategies across the organization.
"We are proud to be recognized by Gartner as an innovative solution for healthcare organizations," said Steven J. Mason, Jr., President and CEO of OnFocus Healthcare. "We believe this designation further validates the critical role we play in helping healthcare delivery systems automate their performance management processes to improve employee focus, execution and results on critical outcomes at all levels of the health system."
In use with more than 300 healthcare provider organizations, OnFocus' enterprise performance management (EPM) software allows healthcare leaders to link their business intelligence with current strategies, key performance metrics and dynamic action plans to produce clear accountability for action and results across hundreds of employees, facilities, departments and clinics – producing performance breakthroughs in key areas that must be enhanced clinically, financially or operationally.
