“We are pleased to announce the 2016 Computerworld Data+ Editors’ Choice Awards honorees,” said Scot Finnie, editor-in-chief, Computerworld. “This year’s 20 winning organizations have used data analytics to achieve a wide spectrum of gains, from improving business profitability to uncovering trends in criminal activity and reducing energy use - even keeping trains running on schedule.

GE Healthcare uses Talend Platform for Data Services to run its Centricity™ EDI Services Clearinghouse, which serves more than 2,100 healthcare organizations in the U.S. and annually processes approximately 588 million claims representing $220 billion in transactions. The company employs Talend technology to streamline the flow of data in the 1B transactions that occur each year between payers, providers, administrators, and other parties in its care supply chain - all in an effort to deliver the most effective patient treatment in the most efficient way possible.
