SALT LAKE CITY and PHOENIX, Nov. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Catalyst, a leader in healthcare analytics, decision support and outcomes improvement, announced a multi-year agreement with Banner Health to implement the Health Catalyst Data Operating System (DOS™) across the health system's enterprise, in conjunction with outcomes' improvement professional services.
Regarded and recognized as a top health system in the country for the clinical quality consistently provided to patients in its hospitals, nonprofit Banner Health operates 28 hospitals, including three academic medical centers and other related health entities and services across Arizona, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Nevada and Wyoming.
Health Catalyst's DOS platform will simplify the sharing, analysis and availability of information from multiple Banner data systems in an effort to improve health and achieve clinical and financial quality targets. A staff of Health Catalyst improvement specialists will work onsite with Banner's physicians, administrators and quality teams to leverage the DOS platform, which includes a vast suite of products and analytic accelerators, optimized with artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing to enhance the health system's high-performance improvement program.
"As Banner continues to pursue the delivery of value-based care while eliminating unnecessary variation across our health system, we believe Health Catalyst's innovative capabilities will better enable us to make proactive, data-driven decisions for the populations we serve," said Ryan Smith, Senior Vice President of Information Technology and Chief Information Officer for Banner Health.
Working with Banner's existing IT systems, DOS will serve as an important platform for the health system's analytical backbone, with the ability to integrate and analyze critical data from over 200 of the most popular data sources, including third-party electronic health records (EHRs), data warehouses, claims processing systems, financial systems, wearables, genomics, and socio-economic indices.
"We are honored that Banner Health, one of our nation's most admired health systems, has chosen us to further improve their quality programs," said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. "Clinical and financial decision support at the point of care is almost nonexistent in healthcare. With DOS, we are making decision support more affordable and effective, increasing the value of existing systems like electronic health records, and making new software applications possible, too."
