Phoenix, Ariz. (May 17, 2016) – ClearDATA announced today it has been named a Cool Vendor in the Gartner “Cool Vendors in Healthcare Payers, 2016” report, published April 20, 2016.

ClearDATA is one of four companies recognized in the report by authors Jeff Cribbs, Robert H. Booz and Constance Sjoquist.

The report recognizes innovative technologies in support of core administration, cloud security, analytics and care management. According to the Gartner report, “2016 will be a pivotal year for cloud adoption in the healthcare payer industry” noting that “the payer industry has lagged other industries in cloud adoption, largely due to security concerns.”

ClearDATA’s cloud computing platform and information security services provide payer IT leaders with a single entry point to spin up new instances, view account information (billing and invoices), and monitor security and compliance.

The Cool Vendors named in the report offer solutions and business models that indicate key emerging dynamics in the healthcare payer space. In ClearDATA’s case, the company has purposely designed and developed products and services to help payers weather the winds of change in the healthcare arena, from the shift to value-based care to increased interaction with healthcare consumers.

These and other trends call for heightened safeguarding of healthcare consumer information and a scalable data hosting environment for business decision analytics – particularly in the realm of cost containment.

“We appreciate the recognition from Gartner, one of the world’s leading analyst and research organizations,” said Darin Brannan, CEO, ClearDATA. “We proudly offer payers some pretty cool alternatives to spending a fortune on managing and securing valuable health data in the cloud.”

Brannan continued, “Increasingly, payers need to analyze and answer questions that aren’t so easy to decipher – from which wellness plans are paying off, to whether programs like remote patient monitoring are making a measurable difference. ClearDATA’s healthcare-exclusive cloud platform enables payers with an ideal – and highly secure – setting to crack the code on these questions, thanks to a newfound ease in aggregating and standardizing unlimited data sets from countless sources.”
