The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) inks agreement with MarkLogic
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have renewed a license agreement with MarkLogic’s technology running on public cloud infrastructure.
This agreement paves the way for CMS to leverage MarkLogic in support of its cloud-first strategy, which involves ingesting data as-is, adapting to regulation and modifications, reducing overall project costs, and increasing security.
The move in healthcare to next-generation database technologies underscores the business critical need to deploy technologies that help create a sustainable healthcare system. Outside of CMS, top healthcare, pharmaceutical and insurance companies are using MarkLogic to achieve a 360-degree view of data and metadata faster than ever, leading to better decision making and trusted analytic insights.
MarkLogic can be utilized by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) program and more broadly in applications throughout CMS to rapidly build and deploy applications in the cloud.
As the healthcare industry becomes more integrated, with more links among industry stakeholders, MarkLogic provides the platform and approach to make data more accessible to everyone, said Gary Bloom, CEO of MarkLogic. In so doing, he added, MarkLogic is proving itself as a flexible, scalable, and efficient alternative to the traditional relational and open source databases.
CMS first tapped MarkLogic to support the launch of a Federally Facilitated Marketplace and consumer-facing website, now known as HealthCare.gov. It was one of the most significant challenges in CMS’ 50-year history, and MarkLogic proved capable of assisting CMS with the coordination of hundreds of thousands of data points from both the public and private sector in seconds, all while facing a mandatory government project completion deadline.
