PHEMI Named a 2017 Gartner Cool Vendor in Healthcare Providers for its Advancement of Precision Medicine and Clinical Research Initiatives

Company’s big data management platform purpose built for integrating and analyzing large healthcare data sets with industrial strength privacy, performance, and governance 

VANCOUVER, BC, May 1, 2017 – PHEMI, the company delivering big data solutions with built-in privacy, governance, and enterprise-grade management, says its status as a Gartner Cool Vendor for Healthcare Providers is based upon a big data warehouse solution that meets the complex challenges associated with precision medicine and clinical research initiatives. Gartner’s Cool Vendors research was initiated to help CIOs and other top IT leaders stay ahead of the IT technology curve, while making better strategic decisions about technology and services.

In November 2016, PHEMI introduced the PHEMI Central Precision Medicine Edition, a big data management system for genotypic and phenotypic information that’s purpose-built for privacy, performance, and governance. The PHEMI Central Precision Medicine Edition is a sister product to PHEMI Central, a big data warehouse platform that solves the challenge of healthcare data integration and governance, expediting the ability to work with large data sets and collaborate more confidentially and effectively. Because PHEMI decreases the work of ingesting and governing data, attention can be focused on deriving value and insights from data.

According to Gartner, “CIOs, CMOs, chief data officers (CDOs), lead researchers and data architects responsible for architecting advanced analytic environments, and who work with complex and rich data sources, should consider platforms that decrease the work on the ingestion and governance side so that attention can be focused on deriving value from the data.”1

“It’s rewarding to receive recognition through Gartner’s Cool Vendor research for our efforts to offer the most advanced and comprehensive big data solutions for healthcare analytics. PHEMI is helping organizations deliver on the promise of big data today, while providing a platform that can scale to meet future needs,” said Paul Terry, CEO, PHEMI. “Because of these capabilities, we’re also seeing massive interest from other sectors, like insurance, finance and the public sector, markets where sensitive data needs to be used responsibly to help transform their businesses.”

PHEMI Central Precision Medicine Edition provides interactive performance across the entire genotype and phenotype at scale, independent of the amount and types of data in the system. Powerful data governance management features address the privacy and security challenges related to healthcare, enabling the sharing of data across researchers, providers and other collaborators.
