Maximize investments through technology optimization.
Healthcare IT has exploded in complexity over the past several years. Multiple systems creating silos impede care efficiencies. Regulatory and payment mix changes mean healthcare IT systems can fall behind quickly in their ability to help you meet your business objectives, and competition in your market is only growing stronger.

Small Hospital…Large IT Implementation
The 18-bed Critical Access Hospital (CAH) in the Northwest only had months to attest for Meaningful Use. More than a year of contract negotiations had taken them down to the wire to qualify for Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments. The medical staff and hospital administration had the right Electronic Health Record (EHR) system–they just needed the right resources to effectively implement the system. Failed IT implementations are not only expensive, but can reduce both the quality of care delivered and productivity of the nursing and physician staff – as well as satisfaction.
