Intermountain Healthcare is named to “Elite 100” list of InformationWeek for using technical innovation to deliver better care for better costs.
Intermountain Healthcare has been named to the 2014 InformationWeek Elite 100 rankings, which is the magazine’s annual ranking of the nation's most innovative IT organizations, which specifically recognizes organizations that use technology to provide better products to their customers or reduce the costs of their products.
Intermountain, which is the only Utah company to make this year’s list, has been listed in the InformationWeek Elite 100 rankings three years in a row. Intermountain was honored in 2014 for the development of a new research system that streamlines the clinical study registration process, optimizes document and data management processes for clinical trials, and improves the study-tracking process. The system was developed jointly at the Intermountain Homer Warner Center for Informatics and the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute, and it’s expected to reduce clinical trial overhead time by 75 percent, which will reduce costs and allow a great increase in the number of clinical studies that can be conducted.
“Just as transformed the retail industry, Netflix changed the face of movie distribution, and Orbitz and others reinvented travel planning, new digital companies, technologies, and business models will shake up a range of other industries, from healthcare to manufacturing to higher education,” says InformationWeek’s Rob Preston. “The 2014 InformationWeek Elite 100 highlights companies that are leading this digital business revolution, redefining business models and reshaping industries.”
