Tom Burton and Steve Barlow launched their company, Health Catalyst, in August 2008, with a $50 personal investment each. They were healthcare industry veterans and believed so strongly in their health analytics platform, which they believed had the potential to affect millions of patients, that they persisted, driving the company until they received their first big investment in 2011 and an opportunity to grow smarter and faster!

Today, Health Catalyst is an innovative health analytics platform that integrates information from different health systems into useful and actionable insights, which improves the quality of patient care and decreases cost. It’s literally saved thousands of lives and hundreds of millions of dollars because analytics drive decisions. They’ve grown to 500 team members, and Health Catalyst is now in over 400 hospitals and 4,000 clinics nationwide.

Co-founder and chief improvement officer Tom Burton says their secret at Health Catalyst has been developing a powerful company culture, created on four principles: improved client outcomes, ownership, pragmatic innovation and transparency, based on ideas they learned from studying other corporations. Health Catalyst also leverages a tool called Motivosity for the team members, as associates and owners, to use to send thank you gifts to each other, and that helps reinforce their award-winning culture.
