University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Invests $100M in Data Analytics

University of Pittsburgh Medical Center has invested $100 million in a sophisticated enterprise analytics effort to create a data warehouse over five years.

UPMC is partnering with Oracle, IBM, Informatic and dbMotion for the project, which it hopes will foster personalized medicine and bring together clinical, financial, administrative and genomic information, which is typically difficult to integrate and analyze, according to the release.

With the help of its technology partners, UPMC will install the hardware and software needed to create a comprehensive data warehouse that will bring together data from more than 200 sources of information across UPMC, UPMC Health Plan and outside entities, including labs and pharmacies. Clinicians, researchers and administrators will have secure, real-time access to data and analytic tools that fit their particular interests and needs, according to the release.

The terms of UPMC's new agreements with the technology partners for this initiative were not disclosed. Besides hardware and software, UPMC's planned investment includes internal salary costs, training and other operational support, according to the release.
