SAINT LOUIS (March 15, 2012) — Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT), a leading information technology consulting firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it has been named one of IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program 2012 Laureates. The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change.
Perficient was recognized for its innovative work with Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH). Perficient helped TCH implement a business intelligence technology solution, leveraging Microsoft technologies, that would give them the ability to not only use their data to increase financial efficiency and operational effectiveness, conduct innovative research and satisfy regulatory requirements, but also create an environment that allowed TCH to provide the best patient care in the most efficient and effective way possible.
“There's no question technology plays a vital role in driving business forward. It ensures an organization's ability to compete, innovate, communicate and thrive. What the Computerworld Honors Laureates so clearly demonstrate is technology's role in moving society forward. Computerworld acknowledges and applauds the outstanding work being done by individuals and organizations that have successfully used technology to improve the quality of our lives and that of future generations,” said John Amato, vice president/publisher of Computerworld. "Computerworld is proud to name the 2012 class of Laureates and celebrate their initiatives benefiting society through the innovative use of IT.”
Perficient has extensive experience in healthcare technology. It understands health organizations’ issues and, through its partnerships with leading technology innovators like Microsoft, IBM and Oracle, can implement the right information technology solution that enables data sharing between critical systems, collaboration between stakeholders, and compliance with industry standards and regulations.
“Perficient is honored to be named a Computerworld 2012 Laureate for its work with Texas Children’s Hospital,” said Martin Sizemore, Perficient’s director of healthcare strategy. “As the pressure to manage population health increases, organizations must remind themselves they are first and foremost dealing with people. Through our work we were able to develop and implement a technology solution that helped TCH not only track operational efficiencies and manage costs, but most importantly, provide the quality of care that patients need to live longer, healthier lives.”
In addition to its healthcare industry expertise, Perficient provides clients with business-driven technology solutions and support in a wide range of practice areas, including Enterprise Performance Management, Business Process Management, Business Intelligence, Integration/SOA implementations, and portal and collaboration solutions, among others.
The Computerworld Honors Program awards will be presented at the Gala Evening and Awards Ceremony on June 4, 2012 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
