The University awarded a contract for Software Application Integration to Syntellis Performance Solutions, CHICAGO, IL, for an estimated $885,882.
Software application integration with the Syntellis Performance Solutions Axiom Decision Support, Cost Accounting and Capital Planning. The end result is an integrated platform, data, applications and processes.

This software is used by our Business Planning/Decision Support department to establish cost accounting standards for all services provided by UIH. Cost accounting is used to allocate cost to the individual services provided to patients and to analyze our operations in various ways - based on service line, by physician, by location, by payer, etc. It enables UIH to understand the total cost of care and identify cost saving opportunities. Cost data is critical in order to make strategic decisions about what healthcare services to provide and in understanding their financial results. Decision support data is also used in quality improvement activities as it combines clinical data with financial data.

The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the procurement is software license, upgrade or maintenance. UIH has made substantial investment in the Kaufman Hall Axiom technology platform over the years. The spun-off organization, Syntellis Performance Solutions, maintains and improves the Axiom suite allowing for even greater functionality. The Axiom software suite is proprietary and can only be purchased/licensed from Syntellis.
