SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- Health Catalyst (formerly Healthcare Quality Catalyst), the leader in healthcare data warehousing, today announced it closed $33 million in Series B funding, led by Norwest Venture Partners (NVP), with participation from Sequoia Capital (Series A lead investor) and Sorenson Capital. The Health Catalyst platform brings a new paradigm to the rapidly growing market for healthcare performance improvement, enabling hospitals and health systems of any size to better manage the coming cuts in Medicare and Medicaid rates, and more easily shift to managing patient populations under new care models.
Health Catalyst has more than doubled in size in each of the past three years while expanding its product line from eight stand-alone solutions to a platform of more than 40 integrated products. The company's agile, healthcare-specific data warehousing platform is utilized in the care of more than 20 million patients, including at Allina Health, Indiana University Health, MultiCare Health System, North Memorial Health Care, Providence Health & Services, Stanford Hospital and Clinics, and Texas Children's Hospital. In the last year, a majority of Health Catalyst's existing clients have dramatically expanded their original relationships with the company as a result of the rapid return on investment from their initial work together.

As part of this Series B investment, Promod Haque, managing partner at Norwest Venture Partners (NVP), will join the board of Health Catalyst, with Fraser Bullock, co-founder and managing director of Sorenson Capital, participating as a board observer.
"Almost every hospital and hospital system will need a data warehouse to organize, visualize and utilize its data to address the $750 billion of waste in the U.S. healthcare system," said NVP's Haque. "Health Catalyst not only offers a best-in-class solution to meet this growing need, but it boasts a stellar list of referenceable customers with quantifiable results and a pipeline of health systems that are demanding the company's solutions. The management team collectively brings more than 340 years of successful healthcare data warehouse experience to the table and has done a stellar job building an outstanding company and technology platform. We look forward to partnering with the team to help grow the company further."
Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst, said, "Health Catalyst is well-positioned to continue to partner with the country's largest and most advanced health systems, as well as offer smaller health systems and individual hospitals a turnkey solution using the same platform and architecture. We are grateful for the market validation of the effectiveness of our platform and we will be using the funding to continue to invest deeply in our technology, services, and people to support our clients in their continued progression towards being data driven organizations."
Health Catalyst's technology platform meets the need for more effective data management and analytics capabilities as health systems are required to adjust to new shared-risk payment models. Hospitals of all sizes can better leverage their investments in electronic health records (EHRs) to more effectively measure quality outcomes, meet regulatory and financial incentive reporting requirements, standardize around the best, safest care practices, and eliminate waste.
Developed by healthcare and data warehousing veterans, Health Catalyst's platform is designed for integrating and analyzing complex operational, financial, clinical, and research data. Health Catalyst's approach has helped large, integrated delivery networks and smaller hospitals alike improve quality outcomes while simultaneously realizing millions of dollars in cost savings from improvements in areas such as length of stay, readmission rates, reduction in unnecessary procedures and prevention of patient injury.
"The market has reached a clear inflection point. While most large healthcare organizations have crossed the first hurdle to capture medical records electronically, many are still struggling to turn that information into real improvements," said Michael Dixon, partner at Sequoia Capital and a Health Catalyst board member. "Health Catalyst is helping their clients overcome these challenges and harness their data to save money, meet compliance needs, and most importantly, improve the health of patients. We're excited to continue our partnership with them as they expand their business."
Bullock of Sorenson Capital commented, "We understand Health Catalyst's roots. Having invested in companies here in the Salt Lake Valley for many years, we know the caliber of folks at Health Catalyst and have witnessed their success as leaders previously at nationally-recognized health systems like Intermountain Healthcare and Northwestern. We are thrilled to help Health Catalyst continue in its growth."

The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
