February 25, 2008 - IBM announced at HIMSS08 a comprehensive portfolio of health analytics solutions for health systems.


IBM's enterprise health analytics harness massive information generated by today's health care industry by converting it into new, data-driven intelligence. This source of clinical and business insight can bring strategic differentiation to health systems by giving them knowledge about their operations, patients and effectively all aspects of their businesses.


IBM's Enterprise Health Analytics are a complete suite of services, infrastructure and tools that can be tailored to the needs of any client.


"We have witnessed an explosion of data and complexity in the health care industry over the past two decades. Hospitals moved to adopt electronic medical records. Technology vendors delivered proprietary applications that captured and integrated discrete data to improve clinical processes. And the demand for clinical and departmental systems accelerated," said Dan Pelino, general manager, IBM global health care and life sciences industry. "IBM's enterprise health analytics solutions meet health systems' urgent need to convert this discrete data in ways that meet growing demands from employers, health benefits companies, consumers and governments to publicly report quality, clinical outcomes, cost of care and compliance to standards."


IBM's Enterprise Health Analytics solutions will help health systems: report, trend and analyze key organizational, financial and clinical metrics to improve reporting compliance; access information to manage and report the progression and impact of chronic diseases within a system, region or market; predict high-risk populations and begin early interventions for wellness management; view and analyze aggregated, specific data sets by specific populations for cohort management, disease registries, clinical guidelines and patient safety.
