The Advisory Board Company is a global research, technology, and consulting firm partnering with more than 165,000 leaders in more than 4,100 organizations across health care and higher education. They own a massively successful platform called Crimson, which helps save millions of dollars and thousands of lives every year. At Icreon, we’re proud to be an integral part of that team.

Crimson Physician Management
The Challenge

Crimson wanted to make it easier for health care providers to be better informed through data, and utilize that data as a way to improve the national health care system as a whole. The idea was just the beginning. It raised numerous questions – like how to be in compliance with storing and analyzing electronic medical records, how to scale across the country, and how to convince hospitals to adopt the system. The ultimate goal was to provide more transparency into the health care industry, something that had not been efficiently done yet.

The Analysis

The health care market is extremely complex and patchy. Icreon worked with the Advisory Board to understand the different ways to analyze patient records for doctors and administrators. We ultimately defined multiple, distinct database-drive products that could be used to help physicians better care for patients.

Icreon developed multiple software technologies to give hospitals better insight into physician performance and the cost of healthcare outcomes. Utilizing .NET technologies, Icreon was able to develop data, analytics and business intelligence tools. Combining our skills in application scalability and performance, we created some of the most complex healthcare technology used by over 130,000 physicians in the world.
