Washington Health Care Authority selects PCG to provide technical consulting services


The Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) selected PCG to provide technical consulting services that will help HCA deploy an enterprise data warehouse (EDW) to the cloud.

PCG’s Technology Consulting and Health Services practice areas are providing services which will support HCA’s Decision Support and Analytics Infrastructure (DSAI) initiative. In turn, this will enable HCA to work with a technical implementation partner to deploy their enterprise data architecture using Amazon Web Services.

Specifically, PCG will be reviewing the existing EDW solution and documentation, leading the development of requirements for the new EDW solution, and helping to decide how to handle existing processes and procedures. PCG will also be leading EDW testing, implementation, and go-live activities. In addition, PCG’s team will be working with HCA to prioritize incremental updates to the new EDW solution based on agency needs.

The result will be a cloud-based enterprise data warehouse that will assist with decision-making and meet a wide variety of data use cases. HCA will have the ability to build and maintain enterprise data management and analytics solutions, allowing them to keep up with rapidly changing technologies and evolving business requirements without being bound by external vendor contracts.

The project is expected to last 12 months, with three additional one-year periods at the client’s discretion.
