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.

Is your organization migrating onto EPIC (or any other source system) and trying to make sense of Point of Service, ERX vs. NDC codes, Willows, etc. and how to intelligently make sense of all that as you mirror that transition in your Decision Support system (TRENDSTAR or Performance Analytics)?

We have assisted 18 clients making transitions onto EPIC and can save you a great deal of time, headache and resources in getting this done right the first time. Please call or email us to discuss.

"IDEA Consulting Group has been outstanding serving as our internal Project Managers for our migration from TRENDSTAR to HPM and subsequent conversion of source systems from Siemens to EPIC.  They stepped in with an initial project plan that made sense and have provided us expertise that we did not have internally.  IDEA’s ongoing assistance in keeping us "ahead of the bus" as we have worked through both the HPM implementation and billing system conversion has impressed me on a daily basis.  IDEA’s ability to quickly gain knowledge of all of our systems as well as their staff’s wide range of experience (we have worked with four of their consultants and their software developer) has been tremendously helpful in making sure all of our needs have been met.  I would recommend their services without hesitation."
