Health Information Technology & Informatics

Effectively using health IT to maximize value

Health IT expansion presents many clinical challenges and opportunities for infrastructure, but also adds value to your organization.

Effective use of health IT helps make the right information available to the right people at the right time, which can fuel an upward spiral of continuous improvement, moving from current care toward optimal care.

Technology’s role in health care has expanded greatly over the last 20 years. Our ability to store, share, and analyze health information is directly tied to improved technology. The use of technology increases provider capabilities and patient access while improving the quality of life for some patients and saving the lives of others. We’re moving into an era in which physicians can see patients remotely and accurately diagnose a patient’s problems, even in the most rural areas, through telemedicine. We have moved from using technology to reduce errors and improve patient care to transforming the entire health care industry.

Our experts in informatics, emerging technologies, and data analytics collaborate across business and clinical departments using evidence-based approaches to define the clinical value of patient- and enterprise-facing health IT.

We assess your current systems, documentation, and information-sharing requirements, then use advanced data analytics to identify improvements across the care delivery system. Lastly, we help migrate existing processes and infrastructure to the desired future state.

Like a Chief Medical Information Officer, we can maximize the value of your health IT investment by working across IT systems. We are experts at integrating and analyzing large, complex data sets—including clinical, quality, public health, and claims data. We can help you go beyond using health IT as a transactional tool to deploy it as a strategic instrument to help transform the way medical care can and should be delivered.
