The University awarded a contract for software license & maintenance agreement to Truven Analytics, Inc., Ann Arbor, MI, for an estimated $503,372.
This solution is a comprehensive, web-based, planning and analysis tool that provides the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System (UIHHSS) with market, demographic and competitive information aimed at making informed business decisions. This tool is essential to better understand and predict the healthcare needs within the community. We are able to extract information about competitive position, emerging market trends, consumer characteristics and potential business impact. UIHHSS has used Truven Health Analytics planning and outpatient profiles products since 2005 to support strategic, operational and market planning efforts. Truven Analytics is mainly used by the business planning and decision support department to generate market intelligence and inform strategic initiatives/business decisions and develop strategic plans.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the procurement is software license, upgrade or maintenance.
