So many of today’s healthcare organizations are in the throes of mergers, network expansions or new partnerships that require HIT systems to quickly begin behaving as a single entity.
As an IT leader, it’s good to know you can call upon an experienced resource—with unrivalled vendor history and expertise—to help shepherd your process.
Using our InTegrity™ approach as a framework, we begin with a rigorous “Phase Zero” exercise that unearths potential points of failure and creates a rigorously honest view of the tasks at-hand.
S&P Consultants bring a frank and objective perspective to the table—providing candid assessments of your in-house situation, the new entity’s situation, and the ability of your vendor(s) to contribute to a successful outcome. Having that neutral ally can be a powerful tool in negotiating—literally and figuratively—among the stakeholders looking to you for guidance.
Uniquely, S&P delivers both technical and strategic expertise.
For example, one of the first hurdles to clear is ensuring that executive leadership has a clear picture of what is involved in combining the organizations’ IT infrastructures and solutions. A common mistake is under-preparing—either from a time or budgetary standpoint.
How does a merger affect your long-term roadmap—not only from an IT perspective—but as it will affect your ability to deliver clinical quality, patient satisfaction, and bottom-line results in the future? We can show you the implications of various options.
The S&P team will help your entire organization “level set” so that you are set up for success, armed with a sound plan that takes each granular detail into account.
Moving patient data in and out of systems such as Cerner (Classic and Millennium), Epic, Allscripts, MEDITECH, McKesson, Siemens, Sunquest, SCC Soft, Haemonetics, Oracle, and Access, or even “homegrown” systems isn’t a job for the faint of heart. Or the inexperienced. With hundreds of successful migrations under our belts, S&P’s consultants arrive with a depth of knowledge in extraction, transformation, loading, testing and validation that helps you avoid unexpected snags and setbacks.
Our clients have experienced a reduction in their data conversion projects times of more than 50%—an acceleration that’s matched by a confidence in the quality of the transfers as well.
