Jersey City, NJ, February 24, 2014 — Opera Solutions, LLC, a global leader in Big Data, machine learning, and advanced analytics, has expanded its alliance with Actian Corporation in order to deliver the latest Big Data innovations to healthcare organizations looking to lower costs, improve profitability and maximize patient outcomes. The Actian Analytics Platform™ powers the execution of advanced analytics and machine-learning capabilities provided by Opera Solutions’ Signal Hub™ technology, and the companies will now provide healthcare applications built on the Actian platform.

With a team of data scientists poised to apply the latest Big Data science techniques, Opera Solutions and Actian will help healthcare organizations streamline operations and complex decision making by identifying valuable patterns buried in their existing data repositories. These solutions are already being used by some of the country’s leading healthcare providers in order to improve charge accuracy and optimize staffing schedules.

“Opera Solutions excels at extracting predictive patterns from Big Data, combining them with healthcare front-line expertise, to prompt meaningful actions that can fundamentally improve the healthcare industry,” said Pieter Schouten, general manager at Opera Solutions. “We share Actian’s strategic mission of lowering the cost of healthcare through driving enhanced decision making, improving efficiencies, and delivering superior patient care.”

“Many of the healthcare organizations that have begun leveraging data analytics are overwhelmed by the complexity of the technology and underwhelmed by the return on investment,” said Lance Speck, general manager of Actian Healthcare. “Opera Solutions and Actian have made it our collective mission to transform healthcare by making it easier and more affordable and effective for organizations to industrialize data analytics technology.”

Opera Solutions’ Signal Hub integrates disparate data and then uses advanced machine-learning science to uncover meaningful patterns and correlations, or Signals, from this data. The Signal Hub extracts, stores, and continually updates these Signals and makes them available to a wide variety of healthcare applications. Signal Hubs use the Actian Analytics Platform, which has been created from the ground up for maximum scalability and price performance, enabling healthcare organizations to withstand ever-changing environments, adapt to tomorrow’s regulations, and leverage growing data volumes and sources.

Opera Solutions will join Actian at the HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition, sharing insights on ways healthcare organizations can quickly turn data into a healthier bottom line. Visit with Opera Solutions at the Actian booth (#3393) to learn more.
