Accenture Named a Leader in Everest Group’s Healthcare Provider Digital Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2020
NEW YORK; July 22, 2020 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has again been named a “Leader” in healthcare provider digital services by Everest Group.
The recognition, in Everest Group’s Healthcare Provider Digital Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2020, marks the second consecutive year that Accenture has been recognized as a Leader in the global research and advisory firm’s annual assessment of the healthcare provider marketplace.
Accenture was positioned as a Leader due to its strong project delivery capabilities; a well-developed co-innovation network; the quality of its resources, including its consulting and technical expertise; and strong domain knowledge for undertaking digital transformation for healthcare provider clients.
The report  notes that while healthcare providers have historically been hampered by legacy IT systems and regulations, “…they are now jumping on the digital bandwagon to meet the demands of a challenged healthcare ecosystem,” particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
