Proskriptive honored as recipient of the 2016 Microsoft Health Innovation Awards
Boise, Idaho—March 2, 2016— Proskriptive today announced it has been named a recipient of Microsoft Corp.’s 2016 Health Innovation Awards.
The awards, which were announced at the 2016 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas, recognize health organizations and their technology solution partners for using Microsoft devices and services in innovative ways that help enhance care delivery for individuals and communities, connect care teams with consumers, deliver data-driven insights to clinicians, and streamline clinical and business processes. The 2016 winners are transforming the industry by creating breakthrough solutions that empower health and life sciences organizations, while meeting global, local and industry-specific compliance and security standards.
Proskriptive is a data science technology company that connects healthcare organizations with a market of rich analytic content to enable easy access to patient insights that guide targeted interventions and yield superior care outcomes. Selected for “Building the Intelligent Cloud Platform”, Proskriptive technology is built on Microsoft Azure and drives innovation by open sourcing the data schema to deliver access to the latest predictive models, dashboards, reports and data sets on a subscription basis so healthcare organizations of all sizes can thrive in today’s changing healthcare market.
“Working with Microsoft has enabled us to deliver a solution that is secure and compliant, but most importantly, it fast tracks time to value,” said Justin Richie, Proskriptive CTO. “For our customers, this translates to quicker access to the insights they need to better manage risk,” added Michael Hollenbeck, Proskriptive CEO. “This Microsoft Award validates our hypothesis that we can do a better job of scaling data science by providing access to turnkey solutions powered by the wealth of analytics that already exist today.”
Microsoft recognized Proskriptive’s efforts in supporting the shared savings needs of Primary Health Medical Group, an independent provider group in Idaho. Proskriptive merged EMR with claims data to provide a single unified patient view and enriched it with risk models sourced from leading healthcare organizations, to allow Primary Health to more easily identify and manage cost/quality commitments. In addition, a central management console allows them to easily monitor their progress against all risk bearing contracts.
“The health industry is undergoing a seismic shift in which intelligent technologies are helping organizations, communities and individuals improve care by helping them better understand and share information,” said Laura Wallace, vice president, Health & Life Sciences, Microsoft. “This year’s Microsoft Health Innovation Award recipients are advancing the goals of improved patient engagement and care coordination through their pioneering use of Microsoft devices, platforms and cloud services.”
Nominations were submitted by health providers, payers, pharmaceutical and life science organizations, and public and private health institutions across the world for applying Microsoft technology to create transformative and highly-effective innovations. An esteemed panel of industry experts selected this year’s winners based on how their innovation represents a forward-thinking development or implementation of a solution that is delivering groundbreaking results and producing better health outcomes for more people.
