CHEST: Improving pulmonary medicine by developing an analytics platform

The American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) is a membership organization for professionals focused on promoting lung health. Its 19,000+ members gain access to training, research, publications and conferences sharing global expertise. It has a unique approach to creating and providing innovative educational opportunities and works collaboratively with industry.

We’ve already helped CHEST create a research and analytics business that effectively organizes and monetizes the organization’s data, analysis and insight. Now we’ve helped them also take control of that data with a cloud-based platform that stores it securely and makes it easier to access and leverage.

CHEST’s insights are respected in the industry on topics ranging from clinical guidelines and training, physician behavior, to regional hotspots for certain pulmonary conditions. CHEST Research and Analytics offers insights valuable to clinicians, pharmaceuticals companies and medical device businesses.

We used our expertise in bringing together disparate cloud-based solutions into an integrated whole to develop the platform. It acts as a ‘workbench’ for CHEST to access all the data in one place, combine data sets and understand data better through analytics.

As well as being able to perform custom analysis based on customer requests, CHEST can give customers access to the data on a subscription basis. And the platform helps CHEST meet its members’ research and analytics needs. With the new platform, the CHEST Research and Analytics business is poised for growth into the future.

“With PA’s help to creatively cultivate and analyze our unique clinical and training data we are really beginning to change the way industry views CHEST. The platform PA built means we can offer members customized data. Industry is beginning to view CHEST from the perspective of a true partner that can assist with all aspects of product development, not just from an education and post-product launch perspective.”
