Health data has become a powerful influencer in population health management as healthcare organizations strive to analyze data and translate it into actionable, real-time insights, leading to smarter business decisions and better care for patients.
Challenged by the increasing complexity of managing an influx of health data from various sources including electronic medical records (EMRs), claims, billing transactions and patient histories, ProHealth Care, a not-for-profit, community-based health care system, sought to drive their data architecture efforts to better manage population health.
The company partnered with Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT) to implement Epic System´s Cogito data warehouse to improve data collection, measurement and analysis, and delivery of data.
As the largest healthcare provider in Waukesha County in southeast Wisconsin, ProHealth Care has 15 primary care clinics, three hospitals, home health care, inpatient and home hospice services, long-term care, senior residency communities, and a health and fitness centre.
