Atlanta’s Piedmont Healthcare to advance accountable care with Health Catalyst Data Warehouse and Analytics Platform
Health Catalyst, a provider of healthcare data warehousing and analytics, and Piedmont Healthcare have partnered on a strategic initiative to improve the health of patients using a new data-driven approach to quality and performance improvement.
Health Catalyst's Late-Binding Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) and Analytics will help leaders and clinicians at Piedmont Healthcare reveal clinical and operational insights from the terabytes of data collected across the organization's five hospitals and more than 75 primary care and multi-specialty locations. The EDW creates a "single source of truth" with powerful analytics apps that transform its data trove into information that is critical to the success of Piedmont's accountable care organization (ACO).
An ACO is a network of hospitals and doctors that coordinate patient services on a pre-arranged fee schedule while agreeing to absorb cost overruns.
