KLAS: Top 5 vendors for data aggregation

The ability to aggregate information across disparate data sources is the foundation of population health management. However, there are a variety of steps needed to fully aggregate data — steps which healthcare organizations are still working to deploy, according to a KLAS Research report.

For the report, KLAS Research surveyed more than 100 C-suite executives, managers and physician leaders at hospitals and clinics about their data analytics and population health initiatives.

The most frequently deployed data aggregation function was the ability to incorporate data in a timely manner using common standards (88 percent), followed by incorporation of outpatient EMR data (84 percent) and ability to clean incoming data (80 percent).

Here are the top five data aggregation vendors, ranked by the average percent of functionality deployed at customer facilities.

1. Optum (based on five customers): 89 percent

2. Cerner (based on nine customers): 87 percent

3. HealthEC (based on five customers): 85 percent

4. Philips Wellcentive (based on 10 customers): 85 percent

5. Arcadia (based on six customers): 82 percent

The least commonly deployed data aggregation function — which only 45 percent of respondents cited — was the incorporation of data from external platforms, such as state registries.
