SAINT LOUIS (Feb. 6, 2019) – 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 showcase a comprehensive analytics and data strategy solution developed in partnership with Northwell Health at the 2019 HIMSS Global Conference and Exhibition. Held February 11-15, in Orlando, Florida, HIMSS19 brings together more than 45,000 health information and technology professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world.
To compete, healthcare providers must establish a foundational and integrated enterprise IT infrastructure to support regulatory reporting requirements, enhance business operations, and drive optimal patient outcomes. In addition, providers are challenged with utilizing an enterprise data warehouse to deliver analytics of value to cross-functional users.
Perficient and Northwell Health, the 14th largest health system in the U.S. and the largest in New York, recently partnered to leverage the healthcare provider’s participation in New York State’s Medicaid reform program to develop the infrastructure for integrating its clinical, claims and financial data into a single repository. As a result, Northwell Health was able to enhance its performance measurement with the state’s reform incentive payment program and gain data efficiencies around nearly 10 million patients, 65 million interactions, leading to improved accuracy in its reporting and analytics.
“The most important success criteria in analytics is driving strategic business value,” said Jim Kouba, director of healthcare solutions at Perficient. “To meet the demands of its rapidly growing hospital, outpatient ambulatory and physician practices, Northwell Health needed an enterprise solution to bring together disparate data sources to deliver a holistic patient view. Through our partnership with Northwell, we helped develop a solution that enabled them to deliver better care throughout the patient’s journey.”
During HIMSS19, Perficient and Northwell Health will present how the two teams worked in close collaboration and partnership with one another. In the session, “Overcoming Challenges in Creating Self-Service Analytics,” Kouba and Chris Hutchins, associate vice president, Healthcare Analytics, Northwell, will discuss how the importance of aligning with business decision makers is integral to a successful analytics strategy and how incrementally building an enterprise data warehouse and analytics system strengthens that collaboration.
Provided as part of the Data Science, Analytics, Clinical and Business Intelligence track, the session will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 13, from 10 – 11 a.m. EST, and will showcase the tools, processes, education and measures for enabling information and discovery analysis across clinical, financial and operational functions.
“We’re honored to have been invited to present with Northwell Health at HIMSS19,” said Matt Castle, vice president of Industry Solutions at Perficient. “We are thrilled for the opportunity to share best practices and techniques with leading healthcare providers. Applying our strategic guidance and utilizing the breadth of our healthcare experience, Perficient was able to leverage key data insights, streamline internal processes and ultimately improve customer experiences for our client. We look forward to the continued growth of our partnership with Northwell Health providing innovative healthcare business solutions that drive future successes.”
