Truven Health Analytics Delivers New Custom Solutions for Hospital Administrators

Integrated technology, data, analytics, and services to help hospitals and health systems meet rapidly changing needs and thrive in a value-based care system


Las Vegas, NV (HIMSS Booth #3021), Mar. 01, 2016 — Truven Health Analytics, a leading provider of healthcare data and analytics solutions and services, launched an expanded Custom Solutions offering for hospitals and health systems. Building on and enhancing Truven’s market leading suite of products, Custom Solutions enables provider executives the flexibility to uniquely and rapidly integrate technology, analytics and services to create a customized solution to their specific needs.

The healthcare industry is in the midst of transformational change, with providers wrestling with new payment and delivery models and a host of new data to measure performance and guide management and clinical decisions. To meet the growing need in hospitals to use disparate data sources to solve real world problems, Truven Health Custom Solutions will offer a specialized data platform and analytic tools for clinical and operational performance management. As a result, hospitals will be able to improve care while reducing both cost and risk.

“There is no one-size-fits-all approach for hospitals when it comes to effectively and successfully managing the transition to value-based care, ” said Roy Martin, executive vice president and chief operating officer, commercial division, at Truven Health Analytics. “With the launch of Custom Solutions, providers can now cut through the clutter of disparate technologies and siloed data, and seamlessly integrate information that will help them assess the market, improve performance and better engage with their patients.”

Truven Health Custom Solutions is powered by Truven’s data lake technology, which harnesses information from a wide variety of internal and external sources, standardizes and combines this data into customized analytics modules, and delivers specific insights via interactive dashboards and reports. Truven Health is uniquely positioned to deliver this level of analytics customization due to its access to rich data sources, team of experienced data scientists, and wide range of experience working with state and federal governments, payers, employers and providers. Truven uniquely understands what it means to operate in today’s environment, and deliver solutions that best address cross-domain needs.

Specialists in the integration of disparate technologies to create fully interoperable analytics solutions, Truven Health has successfully delivered custom-tailored data warehouse solutions, state hospital data analytic dashboards, and population health and HIE solutions. The Custom Solutions team will use this experience to help providers develop specialized data repositories, business intelligence tools with interactive dashboards, portable analytics and statistical models embedded within electronic health records, and bundled payment and payment reform tools.

“Providers are dealing with information overload, and seek meaningful ways to get access to the right information and make it actionable, ” said Rahul Joglekar, vice president, new business development for the provider solutions business of Truven Health Analytics. “With Truven Health Custom Solutions, providers will be able to connect the dots, quickly identify areas for improvement, and optimize performance and care delivery.”

Truven Health Custom Solutions are part of a series of specialized new analytic solutions being developed to help hospital administrators address their unique needs, such as the new Truven Health Community Hospital Solution Suite, which was also launched today.
