"Ultimately, the combination of a network of connectivity, universal health information exchange and freakishly intelligent analytics can help to significantly improve healthcare in the U.S.," said Miriam Paramore, executive vice president of corporate strategy and product development for Emdeon. "Our collaboration with Atigeo is the type of relationship the healthcare industry needs to dynamically surface valuable healthcare data that can help eliminate cost and improve care and satisfaction. After giving numerous vendors the chance to integrate our big data, Atigeo was up to the task."

Emdeon is the single largest clinical, financial and administrative health information network in the nation. In 2012, Emdeon processed nearly seven billion health information exchanges, including approximately one out of every two commercial healthcare claims delivered electronically in the United States. Emdeon's network connects to over 400,000 hospitals, physicians, labs, pharmacies, payers and channel partners. This exceptional access to healthcare data paired with analytics, designed to learn like a neural network, creates opportunities that help drive key programs like care collaboration, accountable care, medical home and pay for performance.

"Converting healthcare data into actionable information empowers healthcare providers to formulate meaningful, well-founded care decisions for their patients," said Michael Sandoval, chairman and CEO of Atigeo. "Emdeon's vast data resources are a perfect fit for the application of xPatterns technology and we are honored to work with a market leader to improve healthcare decisions."

xPatterns, Atigeo's cloud-based big data analytics platform, rapidly exposes insight abstracted across vast repositories of structured and unstructured data. Given the sharp rise in big data, including newly digitized EMR data, there is a need for technology solutions to piece together the bits and bytes into meaningful pictures. The xPatterns platform is a cloud-based application framework for rapidly building enterprise-grade, intelligent applications that make big data more accessible and actionable.

In addition to demonstrating the beneficial outcomes of big data and real-time analytics, Emdeon will also present short, impactful educational sessions featuring Emdeon and industry partner subject matter experts on clinical information exchange and interoperability innovation. All educational presentations will take place at booth number 5027 in Emdeon's in-booth theater.
