Health Catalyst was formed by a group of healthcare veterans with vast data warehousing and quality improvement experience. Our founders and executives collaborated for nearly a decade with Dr. David A. Burton, known for revolutionizing clinical process models using analytics. During development, they faced numerous hurdles in the quest to develop a data warehouse that could handle the complexities unique to healthcare data.
We’ve figured out how to use technology to unify data.
And we’ve seen the results.
After determining that the predominant approaches to data modeling weren’t effective for healthcare data, they discovered the solution, which is now known as the Adaptive Data Architecture. Using a late-binding bus architecture, Catalyst’s adaptive data model is agile, flexible, and can be implemented in a matter of weeks compared to the months or years traditional approaches require. Today at Health Catalyst, you’ll work with a team of experts who know that healthcare needs to change—and have made the change it needs a reality.
Our founders came from one of the top healthcare systems in the United States. Early on, they saw where the healthcare industry needed to go. They built their own data warehouse, but realized it wasn’t sufficient to create the kind of fundamental changes healthcare required. They needed to be able to help their clients spot the trends, map out a plan and implement process and organizational changes to make sustainable improvements. After years of false starts, they achieved a breakthrough that is the proven healthcare data warehouse available to you today.
Health Catalyst’s Cultural Attributes: Smart, Hardworking and Humble
When we were first forming Health Catalyst, we got some good advice: make a list of beliefs and values we didn’t want to change. That list translates today into the Health Catalyst culture:
We hire people who are smart, who love to learn and pick up new skills quickly, independently and with little direction. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel with each solution we develop, but we also know that an off-the-shelf wheel won’t be the perfect fit every time. So we encourage our people to actively find and pursue innovative solutions that truly solve the problem … and more.
- I love to learn and am a lifelong student
- I learn new skills quickly and independently
- I comprehend new tasks and situations with limited direction
- I actively find and pursue innovative solutions
Our people are hardworking
Each time we work with a new client, we start by setting a deadline for implementing our platform, and we stick to it until the job is done. Sometimes this means doing more than we were contracted for – and that’s fine. Our team members are willing to do what it takes to get the job done right so that every customer succeeds.
- I stick to the task until the job is completed
- I complete tasks and quickly move on to new assignments
- I make personal sacrifices, as needed, to get the job done
- I am willing to contribute more than my fair share to a project
- I recognize that not everything in my job will be fun
Our people are humble
We give credit where it’s due. And often the credit for a really amazing idea goes to our clients and team members. Our company was built on humility. We appreciate praise and accolades but we never want these wins to blind us to the fact that our own success comes from everyone around us. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
- I am secure in my own abilities
- I am excited and offer sincere praise when others succeed
- I put the success of the company above my own self-promotion
- I am open to and respond favorably to feedback and coaching
- I am grateful for what I have
- Comp & Benefits
- Work/Life Balance
- Senior Management
- Culture & Values
