Have you, as the CEO and leader of your hospital decided to evaluate what you need to upgrade your IT infrastructure and bring your hospital up to government, staff and community standards? In all likelihood your hospital is understaffed in the Information Technology Department. If your hospital is typical of most Critical Access or Regional Hospitals the IT staff is barely keeping up with their present workload. Maintaining and servicing day to day needs of the hospitals IT operations can be overwhelming. Now you are going to ask your IT department along with Nursing and other critical departments to conduct an internal analysis of the hospitals present IT infrastructure.
What's working? What's not working? How do you get everything up to both government and community specifications and expectations? You probably have two or three vendors advising you on what systems to buy, what modules you need, pathways to "meaningful use", and you are getting inundated with many voices telling you what is the best way to go. The vendor is not an unbiased consultant. The vendor is selling software and services, their own! AGL Hospital Consulting is focused on helping only one organization and that is yours! AGL Hospital Consulting does not sell software or hardware and is THE unbiased opinion you need to help in your 1,3 and 5 year roadmap to IT success.
AGL conducts a strategic analysis of your hospital's Information Technology (IT) infrastructure. The purpose of this analysis is to determine the hospitals present IT infrastructure, what IT programs and services are required to be implemented with particular emphasis on meeting federal guidelines for EMR and "Meaningful Use" compliance. Many hospitals have IT systems that are 8 to 15 years old and many of these systems have outlived their usefulness. Not only does the hospital, in today’s environment, need to know what they are doing today that works, but also what is not working. Tody's hospital must also have a IT plan that will be 1, 3 and 5 years in scope.
AGL consultants, on site, will conduct interviews with every department of the hospital touched by IT services and determine what is working, what is not working, and recommend what new programs and workflows would help each department to become more efficient. AGL Hospital Consulting will build and deliver an IT analysis that is unbiased and a strategic plan that is not focused on selling the hospital any type of software or hardware.
A new Hospital Information System can cost between $1,000,000 to over $3,000,000 and the wrong choice of vendor or products and services needed can take years to recover from. Let the experts at AGL Hospital Consulting show you and your Board the right path.
