In her new report Healthcare Payer CIOs, Leverage Vendor Partners to Succeed at Clinical Data Integration, Gartner research director Mandi Bishop recognized Arcadia as a representative vendor aligned to all five of the most likely value-chain process gaps that we feel could prevent health plans from successfully integrating clinical data from their provider networks.

Key findings:

  • Clinical data integration (CDI) is composed of a value chain with seven distinct processes: consent, acquisition, standardization, normalization, integration, deployment and use-case application.
  • Payer IT and business leaders underestimate the complexity of the CDI value chain, which leads to overpromising and underdelivering business outcomes in aggressive time frames.
  • There are a plethora of CDI vendors, and most are highly specialized. Many vendors support only parts of the value chain, rather than delivering end-to-end solutions.

Arcadia Analytics™ supports clinical data integration across the value chain.

  • Arcadia offers a comprehensive population health management technology and clinical data integration platform.
  • Arcadia uses cutting edge distributed computing technologies to quickly process clinical data sources.
  • Through the combination of a clinical data integration platform and population health management software, Arcadia Analytics addresses the needs of health plans and providers across the clinical data integration value chain, from data acquisition and normalization.
