Saama_logoSaama Technologies, Inc., a leading pure-play data and analytics solutions and services company, has announced that Saama is listed as a sample vendor in two recent Gartner Hype Cycle Reports: Hype Cycle for Consumer Engagement With Healthcare and Wellness 2014 and Hype Cycle for Healthcare Provider Applications, Analytics and Systems, 2014.

Gartner Hype Cycles and Priority Matrices offer snapshots of emerging technologies, IT methodologies and management disciplines. Here, amongst other new technologies, the Gartner report details two nascent analytical capabilities that are expected to impact the way healthcare providers understand and track patient sentiment and customer engagement. Gartner rates these benefits as ‘high’ and the market maturity as ‘embryonic’ – which we believe affirms Saama’s dedication to innovation and delivering competitive edge in data-driven healthcare insights, advanced data and analytics, and services.

Saama’s Patient Sentiment and Experience solution is a comprehensive advanced data and analytics solution that helps healthcare organizations identify priority patient concerns, produce key insights and deliver optimal strategies for each hospital’s unique demographic base. Saama’s solution, leveraging the Saama Analytics Framework for project acceleration and leading customization services, enables healthcare providers to give higher quality patient care and improve overall patient experience levels at an optimal economic cost.

We feel Saama’s inclusion on the short list of Gartner’s solution vendors validates our strategic direction to provide advanced data science innovations to industry verticals and to healthcare and wellness providers in particular,” said Tim Bussiek, VP Marketing for Saama Technologies. “We continue to witness very strong traction in the market for industry-specific and fast Big Data and business insight solutions that meet the advanced analytics needs of our customers.”

The Hype Cycle for Consumer Engagement With Healthcare and Wellness Hype Cycle tracks the key technologies related to the engagement between healthcare organizations and healthcare consumers. According to the Gartner authors Jeff Cribbs, Steven Lefebure, Thomas J. Handler, M.D. and Barry Runyon, “This Hype Cycle reflects an increasing interest in a consumer-centric view of healthcare, the more active role of the consumer in healthcare, and the blurring and interwoven role of healthcare organizations in engaging the consumer.” Saama is recognized in the Patient Engagement and Persuasion Analytics category.

The Hype Cycle for Healthcare Provider Applications, Analytics and Systems is critical, writes Gartner analyst Vi Shaffer, for prioritizing health IT investments. The report states, “With electronic health record systems increasingly in place, the future is dominated by technologies that aim to enable real-time, adaptive management, engage and influence patients, and enhance clinicians’ cognitive processes.” Saama is again recognized in the Patient Engagement and Persuasion Analytics category.
