SEATTLE, Wash— May 31, 2016 — Pyramid Analytics, the next-generation business intelligence (BI) platform for the enterprise, today announced it has been named as a finalist for the 2016 Microsoft Public Sector Health Award. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized by Microsoft and selected as one of the marquee partner solutions among such a large and accomplished field of technology innovators,” said Rob Wallace, VP of Strategic Alliances. “Through our close collaboration with Microsoft, we are empowering healthcare providers and payers to make smarter, data-driven decisions that ultimately improve overall healthcare outcomes for patients around the globe.”
Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,500 entrants from 119 countries worldwide. Pyramid Analytics was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in the Public Sector: Health Partner of the Year category.
The Pyramid Analytics solution has broad market potential for both healthcare providers and payers. The vast majority of these organizations have a significant need to incorporate disparate legacy systems into a centralized, governed platform for analytics. Healthcare providers strive to use secure data to drive patient outcomes, safety, improve operational performance and enable medical staff for self-service data discovery. Meanwhile, healthcare payers strive to improve patient health, gain competitive advantage, measure what they manage and retain large employer groups by providing self-service analytics for these external users.
High profile joint customers of Pyramid and Microsoft include the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Blue Cross of Idaho, Carefirst of Maryland, Memorial Healthcare System, St. Joseph Medical Center, and St. Luke’s Health System.
“We are honored to recognize Pyramid Analytics as this year’s Finalist for the 2016 Microsoft Public Sector Health Award,” said Gavriella Schuster, general manager, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft Corp. “Pyramid Analytics is a prime example of the excellent talent we see in our Microsoft partner community to deliver innovative and transformative solutions to our mutual customers.”
