IoT Analytics

It’s time to make your IoT data work for you.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is much talked about and fast becoming a fixture in many industries. In a survey by McKinsey & Company, 98 percent of survey respondents reported that most companies within their industry include enterprise IoT initiatives in their strategic roadmaps, and 92 percent of survey respondents stated that IoT would have a positive impact over the next three years.

Yet, despite the obvious importance of IoT across industries, a significant portion of companies struggle with executing their IoT initiatives. A recent study by PWC revealed “more than six out of ten organizations have failed to take operational IoT initiatives past the proof-of-concept stage.”

Pinnacle Solutions’ analytics experts can empower you to create and sustain true value from diverse IoT data and initiatives. Whatever your IoT and analytics maturity level, we can help you gain real business value. We’ve helped our customers with their IoT initiatives using the SAS Platform to enable IoT use cases and support a journey toward tackling additional challenges using the same analytic foundation. Most of our customers also rely on us to provide the resources and analytic expertise to strategically navigate the IoT journey and prioritize which use cases can give them the fastest ROI.

Pinnacle Solutions can help companies at all stages of the IoT, whether that’s the beginning stages of planning or mid-implementation. We can provide you guidance on: how to approach an IoT journey, where to get started, how to alleviate barriers blocking your current IoT initiatives, and how to achieve the next level of sophistication with your current solutions and IoT initiatives.

Pinnacle Patient No-Show Predictor™

No-show patients are named by healthcare professionals as one of the biggest challenges for the healthcare industry. No-show patients cost time, money, and can cause operational bottlenecks that decrease patient satisfaction and care. Healthcare providers have tried several methods to address this patient no-show problem, but there is still a significant gap and opportunity to address patient no-shows.

That’s where the Pinnacle Patient No-Show Predictor™ solution comes in.

The Pinnacle Patient No-Show Predictor™ is an advanced predictive analytics solution that determines the likelihood of a patient missing their appointment. Based on this prediction, administrative staff can take additional corrective actions through modification of existing patient reminder protocols and statistically based strategies for same-day scheduling.

Your no-show problem isn’t going away. With the Pinnacle Patient No-Show Predictor™, you can discover, predict, and act to reduce the impact and rate of patient no-shows.
