Gartner Mentions Perficient in Three Healthcare Hype Cycles

Gartner just released three healthcare Hype Cycle reports in which Perficient is listed as a sample vendor for the development and implementation of patient portals.

“Patient portals permit a protected digital patient-provider relationship and admission to clinical, financial and administrative functionality, educational information, and personal health maintenance tools. Patient portals are provided by a healthcare organization, which could be a primary physician, and can be stand alone or tethered to electronic health record (EHR) and healthcare megasuite systems.” (Gartner)

We were listed in the following reports:

  1. Hype Cycle for Healthcare Providers, 2018: This Hype Cycle provides critical input for strategic planning. It helps CIOs to communicate with boards, executives and stakeholders about the future directions of health IT, and to identify, understand and prioritize significant investments in applications, analytics and “medical IT” advances. Specifically, it tracks a total of 35 innovation profiles that represent specific applications, as well as analytic and technology advances, germane to healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs).
  2. Hype Cycle for Digital Care Delivery Including Telemedicine and Virtual Care, 2018This Hype Cycle tracks digital innovations focused on the care delivery capabilities and activities of healthcare delivery organizations. Specifically, it tracks 34 applications targeted to hospitals and integrated healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs).
  3. Hype Cycle for Consumer Engagement With Healthcare and Wellness, 2018: This Hype Cycle tracks the technologies and technology-related ideas that will have the greatest impact on consumer engagement in health and wellness. It provides healthcare CIOs with the holistic, cross-industry view of consumer engagement they need to make strategic technology decisions.

Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities.

Hype Cycle reports can be used by clients and inform the teams on how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of the specific business goals.

“We’re honored to be included as a vendor that has significant experience with patient portals,” said Matt Castle, Vice President, Health Sciences. “This mention is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of our employees, great relationships with our clients, and our understanding of the Digital Health space.”
