INTEGRIS selects new data platform to support caregivers
INTEGRIS Health has selected the Health Catalyst Data Operating System to centralize data from the Epic electronic health record, along with financial, operational and patient satisfaction data.
Executives at the system, the largest not-for-profit healthcare organization in Oklahoma, say the Health Catalyst DOS will provide an environment to take data from disparate systems for analysis and pinpoint enterprisewide opportunities for measurable improvements.
“A key strategy for INTEGRIS is to provide our caregivers with great clinical and business intelligence to help them continuously improve the care we provide,” says Timothy Peyrson, president and CEO at the delivery system. “Health Catalyst provides the perfect blend of data science and tools that INTEGRIS caregivers need to improve care and value to the people we serve.”
INTEGRIS-affiliated hospitals have 1,800 licensed beds, 1,400 physicians and 10,500 employees, as well as 11 Centers of Excellence along with research, patient support groups and educational programs for the community. About 60 percent of state residents live within 30 miles of an INTEGRIS facility or physician.
Applications built on the Health Catalyst DOS platform cover population health, true cost of care, executive decision support, benchmarking, prioritizing improvement opportunities; and monitoring, detecting, predicting and preventing threats to patient safety.
“We believe that Health Catalyst offers the most mature analytics toolset in the healthcare market today,” contends Benjamin Mansalis, MD, and vice president of clinical and business intelligence at INTEGRIS.
