Leading Healthcare Analytics Organization Harnesses Flexible Automated Machine Learning Platform to Deliver Stakeholder Insights

BOSTON, MA — November 27, 2018 — DataRobot, the pioneering architect of automated machine learning, today announced that Blue Health Intelligence (BHI®), one of the fastest-growing healthcare data and analytics firms, has selected DataRobot’s automated machine learning platform to further streamline the company’s analytics model-building and deployment capabilities.

By partnering with DataRobot to further enhance machine learning efforts, BHI uses robust predictive analytics expertise to help customers improve quality and manage rising healthcare costs. Additionally, by using DataRobot, BHI is dramatically reducing the time needed to build and deploy the analytic models its healthcare partners need.

“Using this technology, we’ve further solidified our position as a leader in predictive and prescriptive healthcare modeling,” said Swati Abbott, chief executive officer for BHI. “DataRobot is another solution that accelerates our ability to leverage our more than 180 million members and 18-plus billion claims records to more flexibly use analytics to answer our partners’ unique business and clinical questions.”

DataRobot’s automated machine learning enhances BHI’s predictive analytics capabilities, supporting member/patient identification and stratification, helping identify at-risk patients and then determine the appropriate interventions for impactable individuals. With DataRobot, BHI’s teams can deploy models via APIs or export models to customers. This added flexibility helps BHI better serve its customers and to integrate securely with their existing solutions.

“DataRobot’s automated machine learning technology also allows BHI to stay ahead of industry trends within the data science space, minimizing time spent on things like feature engineering and exploratory regression so our professionals can address larger, more strategic challenges,” said Sasha Gutfraind, PhD, senior healthcare data scientist at BHI.

“The volume of data within healthcare is growing faster than nearly any other industry, and most companies aren’t capable of managing and making sense of data at this scale. With the power of automated machine learning, BHI is uniquely equipped to address some of the most critical problems in healthcare today, including quality standards and rising costs,” said Gourab De, VP of Data Science Practice at DataRobot. “By partnering with DataRobot, BHI can harness the power of machine learning to make better – and faster – predictions.”
