ST. LOUIS (February 23, 2016) – Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it will lead several presentations and product demonstrations at the 2016 HIMSS Conference and Exhibition, February 29 through March 4, at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Perficient’s feature presentation, Combining Multi-Institutional Data for Precision Medicine, at 10 a.m. Pacific time, March 3, features a case study on implementing a multi-purpose data warehouse across institutions and illustrates how data can be leveraged to deliver personalized medicine and improve patient care outcomes. Terie McClintock, a healthcare solutions director at Perficient, will lead the discussion with Michael Ames, associate director of Health Data Compass at the University of Colorado.
“Implementation of the enterprise data warehouse enabled Health Data Compass to produce a single version of truth for their entire patient population,” McClintock said. “The enterprise data warehouse is a critical component not only for the delivery of personalized, precision medicine, but also for scientific exploration of the relationship between patients’ phenotypic and molecular profiles and cohort identification.”
The presentation will take place at Booth 14000 in the Cassanova Meeting Room of the Clinical & Business Intelligence Knowledge Center.
