Healthcare Analytics Enters New Frontier of Value-Based Care

KLAS reports on how the healthcare analytics market is changing in the new paradigm of value-based care.

    OREM, UT, April 24, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Amid the shift toward value-based care, providers' analytics needs are drastically changing, resulting in vendors rushing to the market with a wave of new products, including more targeted solutions. This according to the most recent KLAS report, Healthcare Analytics Perception 2014 Analytics for Value-Based Care--A New Paradigm.

The healthcare analytics market is bursting with vendors, giving providers more options than ever before. In fact, in this perception study, providers mentioned a staggering 87 different vendors being considered for BI/analytics in value-based care. To that point, no single vendor was mentioned more than 7% of the time. In this report, KLAS makes sense of the growing vendor crowd and provides insights into the most-considered vendors.

"Business intelligence and analytics have gone from a 'nice-to-have' to a 'must-have' in today's challenging healthcare environment," said Joe Van De Graaff, report author. "To fulfill short-term analytics needs, many providers report shifting more consideration to vendors with healthcare-specific solutions. However, a clear market leader has yet to emerge."

KLAS spoke to more than 100 healthcare providers to capture which vendors they are considering and in which specific arenas. Cross-industry BI/analytics vendors discussed in this study include Dimensional Insight, IBM, Information Builders, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, SAS, and Tableau. Healthcare-specific/niche vendors discussed in this study include Advisory Board, Explorys, Health Catalyst, Optum, Premier, and Truven Health Analytics. EMR (large HIT) vendors include Allscripts, Cerner, Epic, McKesson, and Siemens.
