TYSONS, Va., January 9, 2017 – CSC (NYSE: CSC), a global leader in next-generation IT services and solutions, today announced that it has been recognized as a “Leader” for the second year in Everest Group’s 2016 “Provider IT Healthcare Services – Service Provider Landscape with PEAK Matrix™ Assessment.”
Developed by Everest Group, a global consulting and research firm, the PEAK (Performance, Experience, Ability, Knowledge) Matrix is a framework that assesses the relative market success and overall capability of service providers in various industries.

They have created capabilities that go beyond the traditional North American/large hospital systems market and address provider segments globally,” said Singh.
CSC earned its “Leader” position because it offers significant presence across all provider service lines, including large healthcare systems and stand-alone hospitals and clinics. CSC showcased strong domain expertise in the healthcare field, which is extremely important when clients are looking for a technology partner to meet their cost containment and regulatory compliance agenda. Recent acquisitions of Xchanging and UXC Limited, as well as strategic alliances with other next-generation technology players in the healthcare market, were highlighted by the report because they enable clients to future-proof their IT investments.
Other specific strengths of CSC cited in the report include:
- The variety of proprietary offerings including Population Health Enablement and Care Coordination, Lorenzo Electronic Medical Record (EMR), Hospital Infrastructure solutions (including cybersecurity, workplace services and storage as a service) and the CSC Agility Platform™ for hybrid cloud management;
