Corporate Technology Assessment for Community Health Center

Project Description

A comprehensive primary care community health center needed to identify strengths and deficiencies in the current Corporate infrastructure to build a strategic path toward improved efficiency, customer service, and measurable return on investment. Identifying their needs would enable them to improve overall Information Technology services delivery ensuring its growth is on the right path.

The primary care center contracted with SDI to assess the ability of their current IT infrastructure to support current and future business needs. The SDI Team gathered critical information through staff interviews, site assessments, and internal documentation reviews taking place on-site and through remote communication. This assessment also added a HIPPA perspective in preparation for their annual audit.

Project Goals

The primary care center like many large healthcare systems must balance tight IT budgets with customer expectations and rapidly evolving technology. It is in this changing healthcare IT environment that the primary care center was looking for a partner that could assist and verify the organization’s Corporate IT environment; while providing advice on the implementation of improved models for the delivery of quality, cost-effective, HIPAA compliant and comprehensive Information Technology services.
