MarkLogic Corporation announced its sponsorship of the HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG). MarkLogic joins industry leaders such as McKesson and NTT Data, as well as leading health plan and provider member organizations, in order to solve various challenges in the healthcare market, with a special emphasis on data integration, agility and customer service. Both organizations are attending AHIP 2016, and will have more information at their booths (HCEG booth #406; MarkLogic booth #640).
According to a MeriTalk study, data integration is the number one challenge of healthcare organizations, resulting in $342 billion in lost benefits per year. Another study discovered that healthcare providers commonly ignore 90 percent of the data they generate—a statistic that is unacceptable in today’s data-centric world. Traditional solutions like relational databases, Extract Transform and Load (ETL) tools and data silos are not designed for today’s data challenges and are not agile, timely or cost-efficient (in fact, many medical entities are struggling to eliminate data silos). To resolve these issues and realize additional benefits, healthcare organizations, agencies, suppliers and systems integrators are implementing new generation technologies like the MarkLogic database to integrate data from silos, making their infrastructure more agile in order to surpass business goals. MarkLogic will bring over a decade of data integration expertise to HCEG.
