SALT LAKE CITY and THIBODAUX, La., June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, ranked among the top 5 percent of US hospitals for patient service, has selected Health Catalyst's Late-Binding™ Data Warehouse and Analytics platform to further enhance its successful performance improvement programs.
Thibodaux Regional selected Health Catalyst for its ability to accelerate quality and performance improvement at the award-winning 177-bed community hospital, already one of the nation's highest-performing and most efficient hospitals. Thibodaux Regional has received HealthGrade's Outstanding Patient Experience Award for the last six years and a number of other high-profile awards for nine years running. The medical center also has managed to maintain zero debt while holding 500 days of cash-on-hand – three times the national median.
"We have a strong track record of efficiently delivering great patient care and service but the pursuit of patient-centered excellence means performing at an ever-higher level and we're confident that Health Catalyst can lead us there," said Greg Stock, chief executive officer of Thibodaux Regional. "We've been looking for a long time for a partner like Health Catalyst that has the right applications and processes to leverage our data to reduce costs, and improve clinical outcomes and patient experience. Like the folks at Health Catalyst, we believe that excellence isn't just about performing at a high level; it's about establishing processes that enable that to happen continuously."
Health Catalyst will provide -- for the first time -- a unified view of clinical and performance data from Thibodaux Regional's electronic health records (EHR) and other enterprise applications. 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.
"At a time when many hospitals are struggling just to remain financially viable, Thibodaux Regional is a model of financial efficiency and quality performance," said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. "To be selected as the data warehouse and analytics partner for such a high-performing hospital is an honor and really speaks to the value that Health Catalyst can add to even the best-run hospitals in their quest to continuously improve quality and remove costs."
New Approach to EDW and Healthcare Analytics
Faster and more agile than "early-binding" EDWs common to other industries, the Health Catalyst Late-Binding EDW has been heralded by KLAS as a "newer and more effective way to approach EDW" (Healthcare Analytics: Making Sense of the Puzzle Pieces, January 2014). The Health Catalyst platform includes a framework enabling rapid development of hundreds of new analytics applications to solve both basic and complex reporting needs. As a result, clients are able to analyze near-real time information to track and improve care for whole populations of patients.
Organizations that deploy the full Health Catalyst platform are well-positioned to advance to the top levels of the Analytics Adoption Model, a road map for using analytics to drive healthcare improvements.
