Explorys announced today that Akron General Health System has joined the Explorys network.

“We recognize coming together with other systems to leverage the power of Big Data enables us to identify better care opportunities for the patients we serve,” said Dave Fiser, MBA, Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Akron General.

Akron General Health System will use Explorys’ DataGrid platform and the EPM: Explore application to analyze its clinical, operational, and financial data across its broad spectrum of services and delivery channels to identify patterns in outcomes and opportunities for improving delivery of care.

“We recognize coming together with other systems to leverage the power of Big Data enables us to identify better care opportunities for the patients we serve,” said Dave Fiser, MBA, Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Akron General.

This multi-year agreement enables AGHS to utilize Explorys’ Enterprise Performance Management solutions across the hospitals, as well as its ambulatory, rehabilitation, and wellness centers.

“We are excited to have the esteemed team of Akron General as a partner,” said Explorys CEO Stephen McHale. “Healthcare providers that leverage BIG DATA not only improve care, but will also form sustainable expense and reimbursement models along with payers to support healthcare reform.”

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.
