Avnet Health Care Analytics Platform Runs on HP HAVEn
The platform enables a cohesive view of a patient, regardless of where the data is stored within a health care provider’s infrastructure.Global IT solutions distribution specialist and an operating group of Avnet, Avnet Technology Solutions, launched its Healthcare Analytics Platform, which will initially run HP’s HAVEn big data architecture. The platform enables a cohesive view of a patient, regardless of where the data is stored within a health care provider’s infrastructure. The HAVEn platform is designed for analyzing and finding meaning from big data--petabytes of structured and unstructured information. HAVEn also aims to identify information that is not needed and can be placed in low cost storage or even dumped. For health care providers the combination of the Healthcare Analytics Platform and HAVEn offers the ability to integrate systems across multiple operational and clinical areas such as cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, geriatrics and neurosciences.
"We drew upon our deep healthcare and systems integration expertise to develop a platform to help healthcare providers drive efficiency to lower costs while improving patient care," Pat Stewart, vice president and general manager of IT Solutions for Avnet Services in the Americas, said in a statement. "Avnet’s new Healthcare Analytics Platform speeds the integration of disparate data to deliver useful analysis, visualizations, reports and information. By building the platform to run on HP HAVEn, we were able to provide the powerful analytics that healthcare providers need to obtain intelligence from this data to save lives."
