Why IDEA

  • 1
    Agility:
    We are small enough to creatively and rapidly adapt our solutions to best fit your needs, large enough (staff of 13 consultants) to respond to large scale analytical projects and implementations. In our rapidly changing healthcare environment, agility is key.
  • 2
    Experience:
    IDEA commenced business in 1991 and our founders have been with the company ever since. Each of our staff has on average over 20 years of healthcare finance and Decision Support Experience. When you work with IDEA, we bring all of that experience and depth to the table. You are never working with a junior staff member, we are all deeply experienced in what we do.

    Integrity:
    We take great pride in the fact that many of the clients we worked with back in 1991 are still our clients today. Integrity to our client partnerships, as well as our employees, has been the key to our success. We believe that if we continue to take care of both our client partners and our employees that we will continue to evolve and engage in new and exciting projects.

Our History



IDEA Consulting Group was founded in June of 1991 by Sharon Mansour in direct response to demonstrated needs for highly talented and agile consulting services that could rapidly adapt to ever changing client needs. This continues to be the backbone of our company philosophy.

IDEA has continued to grow based upon those needs and that model by hiring dedicated, talented, intelligent health care professionals with a proven track record to provide solutions to our wide range of clients. Our consultants, and clients, are distributed across the United States facilitating both local onsite support as well as time zone specific remote support.

Through our consulting experiences we have also been able to define and create innovative software solutions that reach far beyond the capabilities of most software companies. Our product design staff are also active consultants and thus we are able to immediately translate the latest market trends into our IDEA Budget Solution software and other software solutions.

This combination of consulting and software services and talent enables us to continue assisting our clients in an ever changing healthcare finance environment.
