Five-hospital Swedish Medical Center serving the Seattle region will implement the Amalga data aggregation and analytics software of Microsoft Corp.

The software will enable the delivery system to combine data from disparate information systems across facilities to better understand the needs of specific patient populations, develop appropriate care plans, track progress and report on outcomes via dashboards.

Implementation of Amalga also will help position Swedish to participate in accountable care organizations. Other delivery systems using the software include New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Johns Hopkins Health System, Norton Healthcare, Providence Health & Services, and St. Joseph Health System.
