Discover how improving data quality empowered GRIPA to pursue new analytics initiatives
Greater Rochester Independent Practice Association (GRIPA)’s goal is to make better healthcare easier to deliver, less costly for patients, and more rewarding for all involved. GRIPA is taking health analytics to a higher level, beginning by moving their integration infrastructure to the cloud and replacing a legacy enterprise master person index (EMPI) with a next-generation EMPI.
When Geremy Gersh joined GRIPA as Vice President of Information Technology, he began to transform the organization’s integration and analytics platform. “We needed to take a cloud-first approach to our data management architecture, so we could lower our total cost of ownership and rapidly onboard many more data sources,” Geremy explains.
The organization struggled with the heavy resourcing required for a legacy on-premise EMPI. This highly customized, legacy EMPI was expensive to update and maintain, requiring many a la carte customizations. One of GRIPA’s employees worked full-time to resolve patient data issues, tackling 4,000 tasks a month. GRIPA was ready for a cloud-native solution that would be easier to govern and scale, helping the organization to advance quality care and population health.
