Healthcare BI
Moving Towards the Continuum of Care

| Read Time: 2 minutes

While vendor products and options in the health analytics market are broad, a few key trends stand out to healthcare providers: a gap of healthcare expertise among BI vendors, increased complexity of data aggregation, and a heightened call for analytics solutions for the continuum of care (COC). This report highlights providers’ perceptions/consideration of vendors seen as capable in these areas.

1. HEALTH CATALYST PERCEIVED AS BEST UNDERSTANDING HEALTH ANALYTICS NEEDS

Challenging experiences with complex tools and a search healthcare’s needs for faster results lead to consideration of vendors with healthcare-focused expertise and development. HealthCatalyst stands out to providers for their healthcare leadership and clinical expertise and is seen as innovative with their technology. Qlik is increasingly noticed for their end-user/self-service BI approach and industry partnerships (including one with Health Catalyst).

2. SAP, IBM, AND ORACLE LEAD DATA-AGGREGATION CONSIDERATIONS 

When providers think of aggregating disparate data sources, they often turn to cross-industry giants. SAP holds strong provider mindshare thanks to a pervasive BI market presence. IBM is referenced often for BI and artificial intelligence. Oracle receives notable consideration because of their database technology and multiple analytics products. Though referenced less, Microsoft is thought of for their data platforms and ETL capabilities.

3. ANALYTICS PLANS TO RELY ON EPIC - & CERNER - BECOME REAL

Epic receives the most overall consideration for analytics going forward, with multi-year customer hesitation shifting to anticipation. Seen as placing a strong, new focus on analytics products’ development, Cerner likewise has seen a notable increase in mindshare. Qlik receives attention for their growing healthcare presence and focus, and Oracle is noted for considerations in health/life sciences analytics.

4. OUTLIER ALLSCRIPTS EMERGING AMONG LARGE HIT VENDORS FOR ANALYTICS IN THE COC 

Seeing Epic’s integrated system as a foundation, providers expect Epic to provide CoC analytics. Rising on the radar is Allscripts dbMotion, which providers see as capable and positioned for analytics and care transitions in the CoC. Cerner’s HealtheIntent platform is referenced for aggregating and reporting on all kinds of data. Others considered include Qlik and Health Catalyst products, often used together; Explorys and Truven—typically considered for population health and ACO-focused initiatives, respectively; and Oracleand IBM, often associated with big data.
