NewWave and Looker Team to Inspire Data-Driven Healthcare Innovation at HiMSS20
Elkridge, MD – Feb. 27, 2020 – NewWave Telecom and Technologies, Inc. (“NewWave”), a full-service information technology (IT) company, announced today that it will feature the power of Looker, a leading data platform company, inside the NewWave booth (#800) at the 2020 Global Health Conference & Exhibition March 9 to 13 in Orlando, FL.
As an Advanced Partner in Looker’s consulting network, NewWave and Looker have joined forces to produce a powerful data analytics platform for the “Silicon Valley” of Federal healthcare, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation Center. This platform, integrated within Microsoft Azure for Government, will provide a model for transforming the value of healthcare data for all Americans.
“Predictions show that there will be over 80 million Medicare beneficiaries by 2030,” said Aaron Seib, Senior Vice President, Informatics at NewWave. “Looker is truly unique in its ability to tackle these huge data sets as it has the ability to flex and scale to mine data out of even the largest data sets in the world. By codifying and calculating baselines for patients, Looker frees the data to provide a governed, self-service data model for doctors to drill into specific events to see what is triggering cost. Creating these baselines will have a monumental impact on the healthcare system as we know it.”
“With every diagnosis having a unique and complex set of data, it is essential for the medical community to have real-time access to drive decisions,” said Keenan Rice, Vice President of Global Alliances and Emerging Marketing at Looker. “Looker allows doctors and administrators to completely understand their patient’s performance in real-time across multiple disciplines. This deep understanding of patients across hundreds of key metrics provides the healthcare industry with the power to have a huge impact on patient care.”
The HiMSS20 Conference brings together a diverse community of nearly 45,000 passionate healthcare professionals from across the globe for a week of world-class education, breakout workshops and networking opportunities. Looker will exhibit at booth (#8200-32) with leading representatives also joining NewWave, a sponsor of HiMSS20, inside booth (#800) to collaborate and present shared solutions on the cutting edge of value-based healthcare information interoperability.
“NewWave enables healthcare organizations to implement state-of-the-art, agile data analytics practices by leveraging innovative products from our partner vendors including Looker, Snowflake and Databricks,” said Donghwa Kim, Vice President of Engineering at NewWave. “By collaborating with Looker, NewWave now offers its customers high-quality visualization, robust data governance, and self-serve data analytics capability to identify trends and opportunities for value-based health care solutions.”
