Finding the Best Partner: Syntellis vs. Strata Decision

Choosing the right Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) platform is foundational to the success of your organization. Learn how two of the most popular, healthcare-specific EPM platforms – Syntellis' Axiom and Strata Decision's StrataJazz – stack up so that you can determine the best fit for your hospital or health system.

The Syntellis Difference: Axiom vs. StrataJazz

Data Extensibility

Unlike StrataJazz, which takes a one-size-fits-all approach with a rigid data structure, Axiom offers the flexibility to bring in whatever data you want and makes it immediately available for reporting — including on-the-fly capabilities — and other applications within your organization.

Data Extraction Capabilities

With Axiom, data extraction is easy, fast, and secure. With Strata, you can expect difficulties extracting data out of the system and into an enterprise data warehouse, making reporting even harder.


Syntellis’ implementation consultants are seasoned experts who have been in your shoes and are able to work with your existing methodologies, rather than applying a one-size-fits-all approach.


Syntellis won't nickel and dime you as your organization grows regardless of data volume and requests for data model modifications. There’s no need to worry about a data threshold or additional fees for episodic analytics or equipment replacement, allowing you to scale your organization without software cost concerns.

"Data import in Axiom is incredibly easy, especially when it’s a standard field. The pairing that Axiom does on the back end creates a true data warehouse that connects many different data sources."

I get most of my information straight from Axiom. I rarely go into the general ledger system, and I love being able to see decision support data and management reporting data in the same place."
