Intermountain Healthcare enters into agreement to use Ayasdi’s clinical variation management software to accelerate data insights
Ayasdi, a developer of machine intelligence applications for healthcare, and Intermountain Healthcare, an integrated health system based in Utah, have entered into an agreement to deploy Ayasdi’s Clinical Variation Management software to accelerate the insights Intermountain is able to gain from its rich data set.
Utilizing Ayasdi’s application for clinical variation management—which leverages machine learning and topological data analysis to extract meaningful insights from billions of data points—Intermountain will aim to more rapidly gain data insights that can help lead to better health outcomes at more sustainable costs.
“Intermountain has led the industry when it comes to understanding and managing clinical variation. It is one of the key principles we have applied in delivering value based care to our patient population,” said Lee Pierce, Chief Data Officer, Intermountain Healthcare. “We have been impressed by Ayasdi’s technology and are optimistic for the impact this could have on our mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible.”
What makes Ayasdi’s application unique is its ability to accelerate data insights by drawing on clinical data directly from health networks’ integrated systems of record.
“We are delighted to be collaborating with Intermountain in their quest to continually enhance their understanding and management of clinical variation. Their exceptional leadership on the subject coupled with their pre-eminent data architecture made them an ideal environment for Ayasdi to prove out its approach.” said Mary Hardy, Ayasdi’s Vice President of Healthcare. “Understanding and managing clinical variation remains one of the great challenges facing healthcare today and we are pleased that Intermountain recognized Ayasdi’s ability to accelerate the pace at which Intermountain gains insights from its data.”
Both Ayasdi (Kiosks 14042 and 14084) in the Clinical & Business Intelligence Knowledge Center) and Intermountain Healthcare (Booth 1632) with be exhibiting at the 2016 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition (HIMSS16), February 29-March 4, in Las Vegas.
Jennifer Gamble, an Ayasdi Data Scientist, will deliver a presentation on managing and understanding clinical variation at HIMSS16 on Tuesday, March 1, at 1pm at kiosk 14084.
