(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Predixion Software announced six new customers, including healthcare leaders Aetna and Centene Corp. who are using Predixion's enterprise-class collaborative predictive analytics solution to help identify patients at high risk of readmission before they leave the hospital.
According to the company, data driven, targeted interventions using Predixion Insight are resulting in improved patient outcomes and reduced healthcare costs at many of healthcare organizations.
"Predixion offers an affordable and powerful way for healthcare organizations to quickly and efficiently identify at-risk patients so that they can improve patient outcomes and reduce costs," said John Squire, Microsoft Senior Director, Partners and Cloud Strategy, US Health and Life Sciences. "The importance of business intelligence and predictive analytics is growing rapidly in healthcare due to the shift in reimbursement models from fee-for- service to pay-for-performance. At Microsoft, we're incredibly excited about the continued customer adoption of Predixion and Microsoft Business Intelligence in healthcare."
New customers also include a Branch of the United States Armed Forces and American Career College/West Coast University. These customers chose Predixion's predictive intelligence platform to address a range of business challenges ranging from predicting student success to advanced scenario planning. Ease of use, speed to insights and return on investment were key drivers in the selection processes.
"Predixion provides cost-effective SaaS and on-premises solutions for delivering a self-service predictive analytics experience that is tightly integrated with the Microsoft BI stack and delivers analytic insights to the business. What's unique is their 'last mile of analytics' concept that puts actionable predictions into the hands of non-technical information workers," said William McKnight, president of McKnight Consulting Group.
"We are delighted to welcome these new customers. We are focused on delivering advanced, easy-to-use predictive analytics solutions for mainstream users and our efforts are starting to pay huge dividends," said Predixion co-founder and CEO Simon Arkell. "With our recent and ongoing sales successes in healthcare and other verticals, we are confident that predictive analytics is crossing over into mainstream business applications and uses."
Predixion has created a world class predictive platform for big data. Predixion Insight is natively integrated with the Microsoft BI stack, leverages Apache Mahout Algorithm libraries and is fully integrated with Microsoft SQL Server, Greenplum and Hadoop Hive, with other analytic platforms on the way. A deployment framework was designed to simplify the process of sharing models across an enterprise, automate predictions directly from source data to line of business applications and Predixion's own thin client app for PCs and tablets, and squeeze complexity out of the end user experience, resulting in self-service predictive analytics.
Predixion Software is a disruptive predictive analytics software company with a focus on the last mile of analytics - the deployment of predictions to the people who need to act upon them.
