Query results in seconds, not hours; Kognitio Cloud utilized for complex PDS Data Warehouse queries at prestigious academic healthcare organization

"We wanted to challenge their technology and identified a client with a high volume data warehouse – the speed and performance results were unbelievable." — Russell Hendrickson, PDS

Kognitio, driving the convergence of Big Data, in-memory analytics and cloud computing, and Practical Data Solutions (PDS), a leading-edge provider of healthcare data modeling for analytics and dashboard reporting, today announced a strategic collaboration with a prestigious academic healthcare organization.

PDS enables healthcare executives to more effectively manage their business by providing actionable insights into revenue cycle, patient access, contract analysis, denial management, population health, and quality measures that improve operational efficiency and the bottom line.

Kognitio offers an innovative processing accelerator for the PDS data model and analytical infrastructure, delivered via a HIPAA-compliant private cloud solution. Today, the two firms announced recently completed testing which demonstrated remarkable results: answers to complex queries were returned in seconds, rather than hours, marking an improvement of as much as 30,000%.

"Upon our initial evaluation of the Kognitio technology, we believed it could add value to the infrastructure and tools used across our client base," according to Russell Hendrickson, President of PDS. "We wanted to challenge their technology and identified a client with a high volume data warehouse – the speed and performance results were unbelievable," says Hendrickson.

“The complexities of healthcare transactional data require a superior level of analytics that Kognitio empowers better than any other technology,” said Steve Millard, president and chief executive officer at Kognitio. “Kognitio Cloud enables PDS to accelerate performance management efficiencies for healthcare provider organizations in a way that was previously only possible for large corporate entities with big IT budgets.”

The companies remarked that this new client marks the beginning of a collaborative effort to empower performance management through advanced in-memory analytics and reporting. The dramatic improvement in query execution from the combined solutions will enable users to do train-of-thought, ad hoc analysis on highly complex data sets in near real-time.
