Healthcare transformation is the many projects, in many areas, across many organizations
Healthcare transformation is happening now. It’s been happening since the time of Hippocrates, likely before. And it will continue to happen.
Healthcare transformation involves: patients, physicians and providers, nurses, administrators, patient care staff, support staff, community leaders, employers, government, social and community services, vendors, partners, technology companies, consultants, among others.
Healthcare transformation is happening in healthcare delivery systems, hospitals, physician offices, clinics of all types, communities, homes, digital venues, places of worship, schools, workplaces, in New York City, in Denver, in Los Angeles, in Seattle, in Nashville, in Miami and in many, many, many other places.
Healthcare transformation is happening because markets are shifting and organizations are responding. The healthcare delivery industry is becoming more competitive, more lucrative, and more opportunistic.
Thankfully, healthcare transformation is the effort to reorient the entire delivery system around the user of the industry’s services: the patient. That’s a gargantuan endeavor that requires action toward a broad reinvention of just about everything the industry does and the creation of many new things — with the vast majority of activities occurring multiple degrees removed from, but always in support of, the patient experience.
Thankfully, healthcare transformation is the effort to reorient the entire delivery system around the user of the industry’s services: the patient.
For example, healthcare transformation is the creation of a care coordination department. And then it’s everything that is required to make that service a reality: the repurposing of a contact center to focus on specific populations; the human resources activities of job description writing, recruiting, and training; the creation of processes and policies; the redesign of care to include coordination services; deploying the technology necessary to support the operation; finding internal collaborators and external partnerships; the iteration and evolution of the service once it’s launched; and a whole lot more.
Healthcare transformation is the care coordination example repeated ad infinitum. It’s the many, many projects in many, many areas, across many, many organizations, to reorient the healthcare delivery system around the patient in response to market changes.

This is what we hear when we get on the phone with healthcare executives
“This project needed to be done yesterday.” - VP, Strategy and Business Development
Perhaps the IT department queue is too long, a deadline is looming, or the need to innovate requires a fresh perspective. We provide technology, healthcare knowledge, and/or implementation resources for a project team.
“We struggle getting projects implemented.” - Chief Innovation Officer
Project challenges delay strategy implementation, frustrate project team members, and cause other challenges. We prepare a project team for a specific project while imparting project delivery skills to team members.
“We have to get it right this time.” - SVP of System Transformation
It can be difficult for technology vendors and project teams to mesh. It’s even worse when you discover the consultant doesn’t know healthcare delivery. We’ll articulate technology requirements, document business workflow, and partner with the project team to vet and/or manage vendor partners.
