Explorys announced today that Catholic Health Partners, one of the largest nonprofit health systems in the US, has joined its network in a continued effort to improve care, costs and outcomes by leveraging BIG DATA.
“We are very excited to have Catholic Health Partners as one of the leading integrated health networks partnering with us,” said Stephen McHale, Explorys CEO. “CHP is viewed as a leader in delivering quality care and it is invigorating to see them incorporate our platform and solutions as critical elements of their quality initiatives and strategies.”
This multi-year agreement enables Catholic Health Partners to utilize Explorys’ Enterprise Performance Management solutions across their 24 hospitals, 15 long-term care facilities, and seven regional health systems to analyze populations, providers, treatments and outcomes in real-time, as well as measure processes and financial results. Leveraging this data will help Catholic Health Partners to continue their leadership in improving the quality of care they deliver to their patients. These solutions are built on the industry’s first super-scale BIG DATA framework for healthcare data exploration, measurement, analytics and engagement.
Catholic Health Partners (CHP) has been a recognized leader for clinical performance and efficiency. “We have proven our ability to utilize evidence-based practices in the coordination and delivery of quality care,” stated CHP Senior Vice President, Resource Management and Chief Information Officer, Rebecca Sykes. “This partnership with Explorys gives us a core platform on disruptive computing technology that will allow us to leverage a sustainable solution for measuring our performance while at the same time creating fiscally responsible care paths supporting the new and evolving payment models.”
Explorys’ DataGrid platform is based upon a massively parallel computing and unique indexing model that enables healthcare providers to search and analyze patient populations, treatment protocols, and clinical outcomes to improve care delivery and accelerate lifesaving discovery in less than a second; all in a HIPAA compliant manner. This scale enables healthcare leaders to leverage an “always on” and “always learning” network that spans billions of healthcare events across the myriad of delivery venues available to patients.
Catholic Health Partners is the largest health system in Ohio and one of the largest nonprofit health systems in the U.S. With $5.1 billion in assets, CHP employs nearly 32,480 associates in more than 100 organizations, including 24 hospitals that serve the health needs of people in Ohio and Kentucky. True to its mission, in 2010 CHP provided $365.1 million in targeted community benefit. CHP earned national ranking as a top health system for quality and efficiency in 2009, 2010 and 2011 by Thomson Reuters, which studied more than 250 health systems across the country.
Founded in 2009, Explorys provides the first secure cloud-computing Enterprise Performance Management for Healthcare powered by BIG DATA. The rising costs of healthcare and the need for better outcomes are driving leading healthcare providers to more effectively leverage their data to improve quality, patient satisfaction and support Medical Home and Accountable Care (ACO) models.
