Health Catalyst, Inc., a leading provider of data and analytics technology and services to healthcare organizations, today announced that WakeMed Health & Hospitals (WakeMed) will implement Health Catalyst's Data Operating System (DOS™) and Rapid Response Analytics (RRA) solution which will assist WakeMed in providing efficient, quality care across the Raleigh, N.C.-based health system.
With one million patient visits each year, WakeMed is the largest provider of care in Wake County and home to three full-service, acute care hospitals as well as a dedicated Heart Center, Children's Hospital, Rehabilitation Hospital and other speciality facilities and physician practices.
