Perficient Announces Release of Meaningful Use and ACO Data Business Intelligence Platform

Saint Louis — October 11, 2011 - Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT), a leading information technology consulting firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced the launch of Health BI powered by BI-Clinical.  Health BI offers healthcare organizations with accelerated compliance to Meaningful Use, ACO, and quality management requirements using a simple and fundamentally new approach to healthcare business intelligence.

With unprecedented business value, and more than 600 pre-built measures and key performance indicators, Health BI uses state-of-the-art technology tools to enhance clinical decision support, performance benchmarking, and persona-based dashboards from data across a wide range of clinical and financial systems. Based on Stage 1 meaningful use reimbursement incentives, providers have been implementing EHR solutions to provide a baseline for electronic data capture and information sharing.  As providers enter Stage 2, more robust clinical reporting and analytics will be required.  Business intelligence tools will help providers meet meaningful use requirements through structuring codified data, exchanging data across hospital systems, and creating a patient-centric community care record.  Additionally, since more than half of the 93 draft National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) ACO measures are also Meaningful Use measures, healthcare providers will be enabled by one powerful analytics tool that provides accelerated compliance to:

  • All 44 EP and all 15 EH Meaningful Use quality measures; ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certified
  • Guaranteed support for 100% Meaningful Use Stage 2 and Stage 3 compliance
  • 100% PQRI measure coverage
  • 200+ inbuilt measures / KPIs for financial and operational reporting
  • 100% coverage of all 65 quality performance measures required by ACOs for the Shared Savings Program
  • 100% coverage of 88 JCAHO measures

Rising operating costs and increased focus on care quality have resulted in the need for more actionable technology solutions. Health BI offers business functions that provide a sustainable model for healthcare business intelligence technology investments, including real-time clinical alerts to enhance point-of-care decision support.  Health BI supports both clinical and financial data, which provides a 360 degree view of population health management and a comprehensive measure library based on specifications recommended by leading quality and regulatory organizations such as HEDIS, ADA, AHRQ and NCQA. With an extensive range of customizable persona-based dashboards, Health BI provides drill down capabilities for advanced analytics, decision support, performance benchmarking, and complete physician practice clinical quality reporting.  

"At Perficient we design and deliver business-driven technology solutions that meet real healthcare industry needs,” says David Hastoglis, general manager of Perficient’s national healthcare practice. “Health BI is an important extension of Perficient’s healthcare offerings providing a 3-4 month rapid deployment and 50% cost savings when compared to a custom solution with similar benefits. Since many providers often own multiple technologies, Perficient’s extensive experience with leading platforms and deep vendor relationships make us particularly well prepared to help customers leverage and extend their investment across existing IT systems.”
