ANN ARBOR, Mich. --(Business Wire)--
Health Analytics today announced the creation of the Truven Health
SAS (News - Alert) Center of Excellence. Truven Health Analytics uses SAS software as a
core capability to provide government and commercial customers with a
wide range of healthcare data and decision support solutions.
Al Cordoba, who served as Truven Health's director of research
operations for the past two years, will lead the newly-created team,
which includes a lineup of highly-skilled SAS experts. The team will be
responsible for considering SAS solutions in our upcoming engagements
with customers, coordinating SAS technical product support and
evaluating our use of new additions to SAS' complete list of software
solutions and associated hardware.
"We are longtime users of SAS software. The market need for advanced
predictive analytics and decision support solutions that drive better
healthcare outcomes in a big data world is growing every day," said

a wide range of healthcare data analytics solutions. The Center of
Excellence team will be integral in SAS implementations, and will advise
Truven Health analysts on performance and optimization utilization of
SAS software. They will also spearhead technical leadership for SAS
solution maintenance, and it will be the coordination point between top
SAS experts and its users.
The Center of Excellence will also support SAS projects company-wide,
which will encourage collaboration and SAS best practices on analytics.
