Consulting Services in Health Information Technology by Subject Matter Experts


The “life cycle” of services is grouped into four areas based on scope, duration and skill set requirements:

Advisory Services

– These engagements are usually short term and in most cases involve assessments, strategy and development work.

Implementation / Ongoing Support

– Longer term projects ranging from 6 months to multiple years in duration and focus on the implementation of an electronic health record (EHR).


– Projects that are typically part of the implementation of an EHR and involve workflow, process redesign, policy and procedure and other process related changes that enable the successful adoption of the technology.

Payment Reform

– These engagements revolve around the provider revenue cycle and include the development and implementation of new delivery systems and payment mechanisms brought about by proposed health reform legislation and other regulatory mandates.
