Health Catalyst - Why Work With Us?

Health Catalyst was founded by a team of healthcare veterans with hundreds of years of combined experience leading care transformation at health systems such as Intermountain Healthcare and Northwestern University. That team now believes the lessons learned in their previous experiences should be available to every healthcare system in the country.

These healthcare veterans pioneered a new data warehousing architecture that uses a just-in-time approach to data binding to resolve many of the problems they encountered using traditional data warehousing methodologies. The Health Catalyst Late-Binding™ Data Warehouse combines that architecture with a set of sophisticated analytic applications and services to enable our health system partners to realize measurable value within months of deploying our solutions. 

How Health Catalyst Approaches Outcomes Improvement
We believe that with the right evidence, analytics, and methods, providers can transform healthcare, improving the quality of care delivered to the patients that they serve.

  1. What should we be doing (best practice)? We use best practices and evidence in the literature that tells us the best way to deliver care for a particular condition.
  2. How are we doing (analytics)? We measure the current care provided.
  3. How do we transform (adoption)? We implement change throughout the organization to become better at delivering care.

Together, these three components will result in better outcomes and value for patients. It’s important to note that all three elements must be strong. For example, if we are very good at keeping current on best practices and have a strong analytics system, but are not good at deploying that information broadly throughout the organization, then we’ll have pockets of excellence, but not systematic improvement across the entire organization.

What Health Catalyst Offer
Health Catalyst offers a way to use all three elements (Best Practice, Adoption, Analytics) to drive outcomes improvement in your organization. Through these products and services we help our health system partners reach their improvement goals.

"Truly wonderful place to work"

Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Health Catalyst full-time for more than a year


Everyone is going to have a different experience based on what groups and clients they work with at Health Catalyst. I've been fortunate to work with wonderful colleagues and managers who have helped


Sometimes we focus so much on the "new shiny" that we lose sight of the ongoing work that needs to be done for existing products and services. The groups that I've worked with very rarely set goals

Advice to Management

If most of the "cons" in these reviews are complaining about lack of snacks or being sad about a missing 401k match - I think we're doing pretty darned well! Continue being awesome and us engineers

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Health Catalyst (United States) in Jun 2020


    They have a very standardized interview process. Phone call w HR, take-home tech skills assessment, panel interview. I did fine on the initial two phases, and comparing my code to other solutions up on GitHub, it was not hard to advance to the panel round. This is where the experience wasn't so good - the initial interviewer had technical difficulties and was at least 5 minutes late. Throughout that first hour, he mentioned time being short several times, and saved a tech coding question for the last 20 minutes. As I start to define some entity classes, he stops me and says not to, just focus on the algorithm because there isn't enough time. This essentially strips away a frame of reference for myself to use when implementing the algorithm - it wasn't a difficult problem, but the frequent reminders about time running out are not really conducive to do my best problem solving. It was unprofessional and threw me off, so much so that I mentioned it to the next two interviewers in the second hour. If you are trying to assess how a SE tries to solve a problem or implement an algorithm, let them work it out!
