20 years guiding healthcare provider organizations in their information systems and analytics planning and implementation have clarified a couple of things. Much has been accomplished, but there is much more left to do. As the challenges mount and resources become increasingly constrained, healthcare organizations are required to do more with less. We can't keep trying to "transform" healthcare - we need to evolve healthcare. Our philosophy is to build on the work that has been done, get the most from the people, products and information that you already have in place, get rid of what isn't working, and invest thoughtfully in solutions that will propel you forward. Change offers opportunity. Everything is changing...let's make that work to your advantage!
We approach every client and every problem with a fresh perspective. Using tools and techniques that have proven successful in the past as a starting point, we modify and tailor the approach each time to meet the specific needs of the situation. It takes a little more work, but the result is a set of recommendations and deliverables that are unique to you. We take the time to listen and engage, to become part of your team for a while. We bring valuable knowledge and experience, challenge assumptions, respectfully disagree when necessary, and collaborate with you to develop solutions that your team will own and support long after we're gone.
We are a small team of collaborators with a few lifetimes of experience in health care information systems consulting between us. With e-volve health advisors there are no junior staff, just knowledgeable professionals that know how to work with your team and with each other because, well, we've done this before...many times! We are excited by the rapid evolution of healthcare information technology solutions and services and keep abreast of what is new and emerging, but we also have the experience to critically assess this expanding marketplace and think strategically about how to best apply new solutions in your environment. We have no vendor affiliations, so our advice is truly independent and focused on your best interests only.
