Providers Look for Next Level of Healthcare Analytics

KLAS report discusses healthcare analytics vendors' struggles and opportunities in meeting providers' needs.

Providers see analytics as a strategic compass for the changing healthcare world ahead

    OREM, UT, January 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When it comes to healthcare analytics, providers simply cannot have it all. A newly released KLAS report, Healthcare Analytics: Making Sense of the Puzzle Pieces , indicates that most vendors are struggling to deliver ease of use and robust functionality.

With movement toward value-based care, newer healthcare models, and ACOs, providers' analytics needs and expectations are by necessity continuing to rise. As providers look to go to the next level with healthcare analytics, there is still a notable discrepancy between what most vendors deliver and what providers require.

"The pressure is mounting," said Joe Van De Graaff, report author. "Providers see analytics as a strategic compass for the changing healthcare world ahead, and their need for better results and better ways to understand outcomes through data analytics and BI is critical."

The energy around healthcare analytics continues to surge, and concurrently, the opportunity for revolutionary solutions and outcomes is more urgent than ever before. This report helps providers understand the many different pieces of the analytics puzzle and highlights the successes and struggles of vendor products.

KLAS spoke to over 400 healthcare providers to capture their experiences with their BI vendor products. Cross-industry vendors discussed in this study include Deloitte (Recombinant), Dimensional Insight, Harris (Carefx), IBM, Infor, Information Builders, Kofax (Altosoft), Kronos, Microsoft, MicroStrategy, Oracle, QlikTech, SAP, SAS, Tableau and Xerox (Midas+). Healthcare-specific vendors discussed in this study include Allscripts, Advisory Board, athenahealth, Caradigm, Cerner, Epic, Explorys, Humedica, Health Catalyst, Health Care DataWorks, McKesson, Premier, UHC and Siemens.
