Some of the more interesting, vertically-focused companies include:

Clinical data focus

  • ActiveHealth Management: started as a care management company; exited to Aetna and now is the platform underpinning its Accountable Care offering and population management toolset
  • Amplify Health: helps primary care doctors directly contract with self-insured employers (Proactive Primary Care)
  • Archimedes: analytics company working across all healthcare sub-verticals—best known for highly robust disease models and simulations; owned by Kaiser Permanente
  • CliniCast: manages risk by helping providers select the optimal intervention to deliver outcomes (Optimize Patient Outcomes, Minimize Unnecessary Costs)
  • Health Catalyst: builds data warehouses/infrastructure for large provider organizations (Healthcare Analytics and Data Warehousing)
  • HealthCore: health outcomes research company serving all of the industry sub-verticals; exited to WellPoint
  • Humedica: clinical data analytics for provider organizations; exited to UnitedHealth Group / Optum
  • Kyruus: network analytics to identify and understand key social connections that drive commercial, organizational, and health results  (Patient Access Healthcare Big Data Referral Management)
  • Lumeris: population health management tools for ACOs (Accountable Care is a Journey)
  • Medecision: data aggregation, analytics, and population management platform for payers and at-risk providers; exited to HCSC
  • Predilytics: predictive analytics company focused on all at-risk entities, including payers and providers
  • Recombinant: data warehouse and analytics solution; exited to Deloitte Consulting Innovation

'omics focus

  • CancerIQ: integrates real-time clinical and genomics data to identify patient risks, interpret complex data, and highlight the best evidence-based interventions
  • Flatiron Health: business and clinical intelligence platform for oncology providers (Oncology Data Platform)
  • Syapse: enables the generation and use of 'omics profiles in diagnosing and treating patients at diagnostic companies, research institutions, medical centers, and payers

While healthcare data does require special handling, vertical-agnostic companies like Cloudera are emerging as big data winners in healthcare as well.

About AvatarNemo

V: Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valourous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition! The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V.
