We’re excited to announce that Databricks has awarded Prominence Advisors for best Healthcare and Life Sciences (HLS) solution at the 2019 San Francisco Spark + AI Summit, the world’s largest Spark big data and machine learning event.

Prominence works with the nation’s leading healthcare organizations to make Healthcare Smarter by leveraging the data at their fingertips. Our HLS Databricks solution focused on the opportunity to improve Sepsis by leveraging the right data and technology.

Why Sepsis?

Rates and mortality have not decreased in the past decade, accounting for 1.7 million cases and 270,00 deaths every year in the United States.  It is also costly; Sepsis-related hospitalizations cost 70% more than the average stay around 27 billion a year. With the right data, predictive models, and prioritized lists of patients, interventions can be delivered at the right time to maximize successful outcomes and reduce costs of these complex clinical challenges.

To learn more, watch this webinar showcasing how Prominence uses Databricks unified analytics platform to build a scalable sepsis prediction model from raw EHR data.

Congratulations Team

“We are excited to be honored for our team’s work on our Sepsis ML solution build on the Databricks platform,” Bobby Bacci, Prominence CEO and Founder, said.  “We’re continue to push the envelope in building solutions that will change the way healthcare organizations use data in the future…more to come!”
