CHICAGO, Feb. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The QuartzClinical cloud-based healthcare data analytics platform was awarded the 2019 Frost and Sullivan Best Practices Award. Earning first place in the Machine Learning-Powered Data Analytics category, QuartzClinical was recognized for its innovative use of big data, advanced machine learning, and proven real-world applications.
"QuartzClinical streamlines the delivery of healthcare services to patients by combining Lean Six Sigma performance improvement methodologies, project management tools, a sophisticated business intelligence dashboard, and advanced data analytics," according to the report. "The cloud-based platform functions as a separate data analytics layer that integrates all of the key healthcare data sources available to a hospital, such as electronic medical records, billing and coding systems, supply chain management information, financial data, and quality peer review data – thereby helping to solve the interoperability problem that most hospitals experience."
QuartzClinical uses over 30 billion data points to power its sophisticated algorithms. "With its easy-to-use interface and intuitive business intelligence tools, hospitals are able to reduce readmissions, length of stay, mortality, and the cost of care. This directly leads to better pay for performance results and a significant impact on the bottom line," presented Sapan Desai, MD, PhD, MBA, FACS at the American College of Surgeons meeting in 2018. Dr. Desai is the CEO of the Surgisphere Corporation, the parent company for QuartzClinical.
Frost and Sullivan remarked that "QuartzClinical's combination of machine learning technology, artificial intelligence, and precision analytics can provide results quickly. It incorporates administrative tools including clinical metrics, financial performance tracking, patient tracking and analysis, and service line analytics so an organization can affordably achieve quality and safety."
The healthcare analytics platform leads to measurable real-world results that can significantly improve the quality of patient care. At the 2018 World Hospital Congress in Brisbane, Australia, Dr. Desai presented data on how its machine learning and big data algorithms reduce readmission after surgical procedures, decrease length of stay and reduce utilization of skilled nursing facilities after orthopedic procedures, and improve outcomes after surgical procedures. This was validated by the Frost and Sullivan report, which mentioned that "Frost & Sullivan expects that the hyper-accurate predictive models and dynamic dashboards [empower] healthcare organizations to achieve higher-quality care at a lower cost."
