Siemens and Anceta align to create National Patient Data Warehouse
Siemens Medical Solutions will supply information technology (IT) infrastructure and support services, as the company collaborates with Anceta LLC on the commercial development of the largest repository of patient information in the United States.

Anceta is a subsidiary of the American Medical Group Association (AMGA).

The data warehouse will provide participating multi-specialty groups with access to comparative data among participants of similar size and structure, and key benchmarks for practice management, clinical performance, product performance, health outcomes, economics and quality of care.

Additionally, the data warehouse will assist providers, policy makers and purchasers -- including employers and employees -- in making better decisions regarding healthcare choices.
