Enterprise Health Systems Solutions
Racing against the clock
Although cyclists certainly race head to head with their competitors, the real race is against the clock. Health care provider organizations are in a race against time to comply with requirements of the Affordable Care Act, a seemingly uphill climb as they struggle with the act’s many impacts and competitors' moves to take the lead in their markets. From changing reimbursement levels and ICD-10 standards to electronic health records (EHR) and meaningful use, U.S. health care reform is a reality, and health care systems are transforming their businesses to operate effectively in this new environment.
As health care systems place more emphasis on quality care and patient satisfaction, highly integrated information technology systems and processes play an even more vital role in improving clinical safety, continuity, and quality while increasing efficiency and supporting cost containment. With resources at a premium, many health care systems may need assistance to drive the necessary operational transformation. Perhaps something like “our Enterprise Health Systems Solutions practice provides solutions and assistance with technology, workflow, and people continuums addressing challenges in both the administrative revenue cycle and the clinical operations environments.”
