"Everything we do here is about how to take in the various often disparate data sources that construct the healthcare landscape such as claims, laboratory, pharmacy, medical benefits, demographic information, provider information, and facility information, and apply advanced analytics onto that data to identify the difference between current state and desired state," CEO Keith Dunleavy told Forbes in an interview.

"That gap between current state and desired state across a number of different constituencies is what our life is all about, because then we can apply additional analytics that tell us how to close that gap," he added.
