Memorial Healthcare wins prestigious ComputerWorld award
Congratulations Memorial Healthcare System for winning the prestigious 2015 Data+ Editors' Choice Awards from Computerworld. On behalf of our entire team at Pyramid Analytics, we salute MHS and their BI initiative team for this remarkable achievement.
The award recognizes key aspects of how Memorial successfully benefits from investing in Pyramid Analytics:
- Use data analytics to help the organization find operating room cost efficiencies and improve patient care
- Gain the ability to analyze large volumes of data, from multiple sources
- Deliver relevant and consistent information to bring together multiple departments – from finance to clinical personnel, from medical to technical staff
“(…) the finance department can compare prices of stents from different manufacturers with a few mouse clicks and quickly estimate whether switching vendors will save money. And clinical staffers can, say, check to see which procedures are in demand, measure how long each surgeon takes to do a particular procedure, and check demographic data to see which segments of the local population have specific surgical needs.”
Wrote Stacy Collet in her article announcing Computerworld’s 2015 Data+ Editors' Choice Awards.
At Pyramid Analytics, we take pride in helping our customers succeed, scaling the reach, impact and adoption of their BI initiatives. It’s motivating to see Memorial Healthcare Systems recognized for their success using BI to drive operational efficiency and superior patient care. To put their results in perspective, earning this recognition places Memorial in an exclusive club of ComputerWorld award-winners that included UPS, Zulily, PayPal, Merck, and DirecTV. It’s because of success achieved by customers like Memorial, CareFirst, Blue Cross, and Saint Luke's Medical Center that Pyramid Analytics also got recognitions of our own, being honored as Recipient of the 2015 Microsoft U.S. Healthcare Partner Awards.
I have the pleasure to work with this award-winning team including IT clinical systems supervisor Diane Dowdell; business intelligence developer Karin Fernandez; Martin Hadida, director, data architect; BI architect Alvaro Reis; BI developer Terry Garzon; and BI developer Juan Velez.
Congratulations to you all!
