HIMSS Analytics, the research arm of the Chicago-based Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, has launched a new analytics tool that aims to help stakeholders gain insight into predictive modeling, benchmarks and value optimization of health IT.

According to a HIMSS press release, the tool, named Logic, was collaboratively built with hospitals and health systems, and allows healthcare providers, healthcare IT companies, governmental and education organizations, and investors to gain crucial insights for guiding healthcare IT strategies.  The tool will also help with the ranking and adoption of the HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM).

Logic builds off the current HIMSS Analytics Database, which stores key data insights from provider institutions across the country. New features include more visualizations and customizable dashboards that generate actionable market intelligence on-demand. Users can quickly understand the healthcare landscape from various avenues—from healthcare IT trends such as usage, first-time purchases, upgrades or replacements, to who the key healthcare decisions makers are at an organization and their new areas of focus, HIMSS officials said.

With HIMSS Analytics Logic, global healthcare leaders, stakeholders and influencers can look to benefit from the following features:

  • New data insights that define the market – Deep dives into financials, clinician and patient volumes, a healthcare organization’s footprint, size, primary services offered, mergers, acquisitions or construction, and their participation in accountable care organizations (ACO) and health information exchanges (HIE).
  • Smarter performance – New supporting technology powers the market’s fastest generation of reports and insights with advanced filter settings that can identify facilities by their EMRAM score.
  • Personalized, flexible and scalable – Interactive and intuitive reports and dashboards can be tailored for sales, product teams and marketing. Mobile access on any device empowers on-the-go insights.

“For providers, the road to value is an important but challenging journey. Having the market insights into what technologies providers are leveraging – insights that HIMSS Analytics has long provided the industry—is an important resource for all hospitals and health systems,” Adrienne Edens, Sutter Health Valley Area CIO and HIMSS board member, said in a statement. “Logic will also ensure that providers are being approached with the services and technologies that they actually need to improve care.”

The tool will be showcased at the HIMSS16 Annual Exhibition & Conference taking place in Las Vegas from February 29 – March 4, 2016.
