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 began as a small analytics company that looked to increase transparency into the health care industry. The end goal was crystal clear – to make it easier for care providers to access relevant data, and to constantly use that data as a way to improve the national system

as a whole. This simple premise launched a thousand questions, like how to remain in compliance while storing and analyzing electronic medical records, how to scale across the country, and how to convince hospital systems to get on-board. Together, we found answers.

The Analysis

Working with Crimson, we realized a number of things – the healthcare technology market is highly complex and fragmented. To solve this, we worked with the leadership team to understand different ways we could

analyze patient records for doctors and administrators. This led to defining multiple, distinct database-driven products that could be used in tandem to help physicians better care for patients.

Ultimately, our work with Crimson and The Advisory Board has produced multiple software technologies which hospitals can subscribe to that allows them to gain better insight into physician performance and cost of care outcomes. The data, analytics and business
intelligence tools we've co-created leverage the latest in .NET, combining our skills in application scalability, distributed architecture, authentication, and performance to create some of the most sophisticated health-related technology on the planet.
