VisionWare, a leading provider of Master Data Management (MDM) solutions for hospitals, health systems, and state and local governments, recently announced a strategic partnership with Montgomery County, PA to help streamline operations and improve service to citizens through the creation of a single "golden view" of each citizen in the county, in particular working with the Department of Health and Human Services within the county.

"It's important for us to have a complete picture when serving our community, which means a complete, accurate and single view of the constituent or citizen," says Anthony Olivieri, CIO of Montgomery County. "We chose VisionWare for their transparency, customizability, and user-friendly interface, to help ensure that the members of our community are receiving the high-quality services they deserve, as cost-efficiently as possible. VisionWare's innovative Master Data Management solution and deep understanding of the needs of both public sector and healthcare clients were clear differentiators."

VisionWare's MDM technology helps health systems and state and local governments gather fragmented data from disparate departments to create a single view of each patient or citizen, to deliver:

  • Accurate, complete, and consistent constituent data across departments and agencies
  • A holistic view of service consumption for more informed decisions
  • Higher-quality, more streamlined services delivered at lower cost
  • A common entry point for front office, back office, and constituent self-service
  • A common data backbone for digital transformation and CRM renewal, and
  • Better outcomes—and a better experience—for the patient or citizen

Montgomery County, located just northwest of Philadelphia, is the third most populous county in Pennsylvania, serving nearly 800,000 citizens. The county's Information and Technology Solutions (ITS) department champions prudent technological investments and provides support for computer, network, and telecommunications throughout the county. The ITS department was honored at a Microsoft Technologies Summit for its recent accomplishments. The County was recognized for its forward thinking in areas such as Server Virtualization, Support Desk Efficiencies and Data Center Design. Montgomery County is committed to providing the various county departments and other agencies with the highest level of support, utilizing proven industry standards and technologies—a commitment VisionWare can help them fulfill.

"Working with Montgomery County is an excellent opportunity for VisionWare to exercise our strengths in all areas, providing a comprehensive, single view of the patient or citizen in both the government and the healthcare sectors, as we'll be working with Montgomery County's Department of Health and Human Services department," says Gordon Cooper, Founder and Chairman of VisionWare. "This partnership builds on our proven track record of delivering actionable results across sectors and utilizes a combination of the technology and services that has made VisionWare a trusted data solutions provider for many years."
