End-to-end clinical data integration platforms are the future of operational agility and improved patient outcomes.

Plano, TX, January 02, 2024 – Health Chain, a leading innovator in healthcare technology, announced it has been recognized as a Sample Vendor for Clinical Data Integration.

As reported by Health Affairs, around 15%, equivalent to roughly $600 billion of the total expenditure in the United States healthcare sector is linked to fraud, waste, and abuse. This represents a substantial quantification of the accessible opportunities for improvement within the industry. A significant portion of these challenges stem from the inability to achieve seamless interoperability, leading to siloed data, disjointed data pipelines, and a lack of alignment + collaboration across industry stakeholders. There is a notable absence of strategic initiatives targeting the importance of clinical data integration platforms.

Health Chain’s Centaur Data Platform aims to help Health Plans establish end-to-end data pipelines that not only reduce data hops from source to destination but also enable downstream processes including but not limited to risk adjustment, prior authorization and utilization management, care management and improving Star Ratings through quality measure improvements. According to Gartner, “The emergence of the health data management platform marks an inflection point in the next generation of healthcare data and analytic and health data integration solutions.”

Sudheen Kumar, Health Chain CEO said, “We are thrilled to have been recognized by Gartner! We believe our ongoing work with several BCBS plans has only reinforced the industry’s need for a FHIR-native, scalable health data management platform. We are excited to be a key contributor in the innovation required for the industry to truly adopt interoperability to reduce costs and effectively create better outcomes for members.”
