Spreading our wings

We are proud to be chosen by Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center to provide project management and practice consulting services to their EHR deployment project. We're working closely with BIDMC's excellent staff and with eClinicalWorks and Concordant, who were also chosen for the project and who we know very well from the MAeHC project.

This is the first commercial project undertaken by MAeHC. As we near the end of our seed funding from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, we are pursuing a 'public service' strategy and a 'commercial' strategy. The public service strategy is to get collaboratively provided resources to build on the successess and lessons of the pilot projects and launch Phase 1 of a statewide rollout. The 'commercial' strategy is to pursue paying customers inside and outside of the Commonwealth who have needs that we have the skills and interest to address. These strategies are complementary -- the lessons we learn from clinical leaders such as BIDMC will make us even more seasoned for the challenges of a statewide rollout. In return, if we can get any organization to avoid our mistakes and replicate our successes, our mission will be forwarded.
