The rapidly expanding need to integrate and evaluate protected health information has led life sciences companies to invest in increasingly complex informatics initiatives. But too often, they do so without a vetted business case for long-term ROI. Without a strategic roadmap for data integration, or data visualization that highlights key insights, companies can find themselves paralyzed, not empowered, by their big data projects.

HighPoint helps life sciences companies achieve the right mix of business process architecture, compliance oversight, and information management capabilities, allowing them to derive meaningful insights from their data. Paired with DPaaS (data provisioning as a service) support, we can enable new, democratized analytics to drive long-term value — all while managing governance, quality, integration, and near-real-time provisioning.

We’ve completed more than 100 informatics projects for clients worldwide, including digital analytics frameworks, unstructured data mining solutions, real-world evidence analyses, and predictive patient outcomes solutions. After these solutions were completed, we continued our work as a managed services provider for more than half of these projects.

DATA INTEGRATION IS EVOLVING

As technology rapidly shifts data integration needs from traditional on-premise ETL and EAI integrations to a mix of cloud and web-based services, life sciences companies must choose an integration partner with a clear vision that spans strategy, implementation, and analytics.

HighPoint has helped organizations address nearly every data type imaginable, across business functions, spanning global transparency, commercial cloud integration, real world evidence, IDMP, REMS, and pharmacovigilance. By utilizing established frameworks for every stage of a data integration initiative, our clients receive consistent and efficient implementations that meet their needs.

HighPoint can review the state of your technologies and your data from all sources to workshop and design a future state for your ETL/EAI capabilities. We’ll assess the external market landscape for emerging tech practices and define a roadmap for reaching these new capabilities.

IMPLEMENTATION SERVICES

Most clients who select HighPoint for their integration implementations also turn to us for managed services support. We can take on platform operations, maintenance, and the deployment of new services for any range of technologies at any scale.
