We treat every consulting engagement as a partnership, and we make it our mission to arm your team with the knowledge and skills needed to continue making progress long after our exit. Our standard partnerships typically include:
- Assessment: We evaluate your current IT capabilities and uses to identify new systems you may need and opportunities to improve workflows.
- Selection: We lead the selection process for new IT platforms by vetting qualified vendors, identifying an initial pool, orchestrating product demonstrations, and assisting with negotiations.
- Implementation: We develop an implementation plan for the “go-live,” inclusive of policies, procedures, training curriculum, and performance dashboards. Depending on your needs, we can supplement these efforts with expert interim management.
- Optimization: We identify and mitigate IT-associated challenges to stabilize the technology and provide recommendations to optimize the current system. We also offer this as a standalone service for providers looking to optimize existing technologies.
