Better Thinking Better Solutions - Health Lyrics

The mission for Health IT is too important not to be ahead of the curve

From buried to leading. The difference between a successful Health IT operation and a lagging one is clarity. With clarity you can lead.

We've been under the wave

We were once buried by the waves as they crashed over us again and again.

In the fall of 2011 we were brought in as leaders at a $6BN health system that faced:

  • 50% of the data center equipment and 60% of workstations were end-of-life
  • 1,800 instances of 900 distinct applications
  • 9 Acute care EHR instances
  • A clinically integrated network with >90 EHRs
  • A data center that had just gone completely down 8 times in 6 weeks.

We emerged from that, we got ahead and started riding the wave and it is exhilarating

24 months later

  • 1 Acute EHR
  • Reduced data center footprint from 12 to 2. Avoiding $15M in data center investments
  • Reduced server provisioning from 2 weeks to 2 minutes
  • Developed and launched multi-EHR portal in 30 days
  • Developed and launched online clinic check-in application in 7 days

We believe every Health IT organization has it within them to be great. It starts with clarity
