DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Aug. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sentry Data Systems announced today that it has been selected as a finalist in the 2018 SaaS Awards program for the Best Data-Driven SaaS Product.
The Software-as-a-Service Awards program is now in its third year of celebrating innovation and excellence in software, and accepts entries worldwide.
"Since Sentry's founding in 2003, our technology platform and services teams have helped healthcare organizations realize more than $8.5 billion in savings," said Travis Leonardi, Sentry's CEO and Founder. "Acquiring Agilum in 2016 was essential to completing Sentry's full spectrum of data analytics and business intelligence offerings for managing the entire healthcare enterprise. Our clients continue to take notice of how quickly Agilum's Productivity Management, Revenue Cycle Performance and Service Line Costing and Profitability modules can make a difference in managing costs and improving productivity."
A study conducted by Porter Research in April 2018 found 74% of hospitals currently use a third-party software vendor to support their financial and operational reporting and analytics. One hospital reported that with Agilum, "For the first time ever, finance and department heads can accurately see daily costs against their budgets and compare against historical trends."
SaaS Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: "In our third year promoting SaaS Awards, we have seen a wide variety of submissions from smaller non-profits to some of the largest organizations in the world. Making the shortlist itself is a huge achievement. All entrants demonstrated considerable commitment to software innovation."
