USA's edition of Business Chief - May issue now available!
The May issue of the USA edition of Business Chief is now live!
This month, we start the conversation with Epicor’s Senior Vice President of Product Marketing, Scott Hays.
As more and more businesses struggle to attract, and more importantly retain, the key talent and expertise they need, Hays tells us why it's important for employers to encourage Generation Z in the workforce.
On the subject of skills shortages, we also speak to Jack Coker, Principal at Ducatus Partners, to see how companies can address the lack of skilled workers and investment in both America and the world stage.
Speaking to Business Chief, he discusses whether the current skills gap a global phenomenon and what businesses can do to fix it.
Next, with an estimated 50mn electric vehicles to be in operation by 2025, we speak to Taavi Madiberk, CEO and Co-founder of Skeleton Technologies, to see how businesses can make sure that the adoption of electric vehicles is sustainable.
In a fast-changing marketplace, developing and maintaining a brand identity can be a mammoth challenge for any company.
With this in mind, Business Chief spoke to marketing expert Allen Adamson. He tells us why business should be careful not to dilute their brand when introducing new products.
Next, we turn the spotlight to the capital of Georgia, Atlanta, to see how this bustling economic powerhouse is emerging as a major player in both the US and global economy.
Finally, Business Chief takes a look at the top 10 largest commercial businesses that the US has to offer.
Health Catalyst: An agile approach to healthcare data
Healthcare Catalyst is quite literally a healthcare providers’ catalyst for change when it comes to their measurable, data-informed improvement in analytics, software and services.
Founded in 2008 in Salt Lake City, Utah, Health Catalyst is dedicated to enabling health care organisations to build a healthcare-specific, open, flexible, and scalable data platform and fully integrated suite of analytics applications.
This enables health system partners, including Northwell Health in New York which serves a population of 11 million, to realise measurable value within months. “Our customers have recognised the potential to use data, to meaningfully improve their clinical, financial and operational business performance outcomes,” said Mike Doyle, Chief Customer Officer.
Formed by a group of healthcare veterans – with a quest to develop a data warehouse that could handle the complexities unique to healthcare data – they revolutionised the clinical process models and use of analytics and discovered the solution now known as Adaptive Data Architecture, which is agile, flexible and can be implemented in a matter of weeks compared to a matter of years.
Today, Health Catalyst helps clinicians in more than 250 hospitals that care for more than 100 million patients each year.
Health Catalyst offers a solution in three parts:
Data Operating System
Cloud-based DOS is a healthcare-specific, open, flexible, and scalable that provides customers a single environment to integrate and organise data.
Analytics applications build on top of the data platform and allow customers to make measurable clinical, financial and operational improvements.
World-class team of analytics and domain experts leverage technology to help customers shorten time-to-value and achieve sustainable, measurable improvements.
The fully integrated data platform and suite of analytics applications helped clients during the pandemic, in ways even Health Catalyst could never have imagined. Health Catalyst offered products and services to support customers’ agile response to the pandemic in four phases:
“By having the data operating system, our clients were able to take advantage of the integrated source of data to meet challenges that they were facing in their local geographies due to the pandemic in ways that we could never even have predicted,” said Doyle.
Doyle highlighted Health Catalyst’s Value Architecture group, which helps the company ensure that its technology and expertise are delivering measurable and meaningful value to our clients. “I think another key differentiator is our open platform that our clients are able to use to accelerate their own integration of data, but it is customisable, configurable in ways that makes it unique for them in ways other cookie cutter analytics just can’t match.
“We like to start every discussion by listening and understanding how we can help our customers avoid making mistakes and getting the most out of their investment in data.”
Speaking about their partnership with Northwell, Doyle said: “We're very grateful for this partnership and want to thank these visionary leaders who are able to envision a future using data that is light years beyond what we can think of today.”
