Intermountain to deploy clinical variation management software from Ayasdi
LAS VEGAS – Utah-based Intermountain Healthcare will deploy the Clinical Variation Management software from Ayasdi, a developer of machine intelligence applications for healthcare. Intermountain Healthcare believes the software can boost the insights the health system can gain from its mountain of health data.
Ayasdi’s software leverages machine learning and topological data analysis to extract meaningful insights from billions of data points, the vendor explained. Consequently, Intermountain sees the software helping it to more rapidly gain data insights that can help lead to better health outcomes at more sustainable costs.
“Intermountain has led the industry when it comes to understanding and managing clinical variation,” said Lee Pierce, Intermountain’s chief data officer. “It is one of the key principles we have applied in delivering value-based care to our patient population. We have been impressed by Ayasdi’s technology and are optimistic for the impact it could have on our mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible.”

Ayasdi’s Clinical Variation Management software can accelerate the process of gaining insights from health data because it draws on clinical data directly from a provider organization’s integrated systems of record, Ayasdi said.
“Understanding and managing clinical variation remains one of the great challenges facing healthcare today, and we are pleased Intermountain recognized Ayasdi’s ability to accelerate the pace at which Intermountain gains insights from its data,” said Mary Hardy, Ayasdi vice president of healthcare.
Both Ayasdi and Intermountain Healthcare are exhibiting this week at HIMSS16, Ayasdi in kiosks 14042 and 14084 in the Clinical & Business Intelligence Knowledge Center, and Intermountain in booth 1632 in the main exhibit hall.
Intermountain Healthcare is a not-for-profit health system of 22 hospitals, 185 clinics, a medical group with 1,300 employed physicians, a health plans division called SelectHealth, and other health services.
