Culbert Healthcare Solutions Announces Premier Partnership with ConnexaHealth
Collaboration will extend & improve the utilization of information technology by provider organizations
WOBURN, MA- October 12, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE) ––Culbert Healthcare Solutions, a professional services firm that strategically advises hospitals, academic medical centers and large group practices, today announced a partnership with ConnexaHealth, a provider of healthcare technology products and services, as a complement to Culbert’s national healthcare consulting practice.
The partnership creates a unique, holistic set of services that enables provider organizations to better navigate and succeed in the rapidly transforming US healthcare system. Culbert’s 10-year history and expertise in guiding the nation’s leading academic medical centers and integrated health systems to apply best practices and technology will be enhanced by Connexa’s focus on extending and optimizing core access, clinical and revenue cycle applications to improve adoption and enhance the return on IT investments.
“With provider organizations facing changes in reimbursement and financial risk, there has never been a greater need for knowledge and expertise in applying technology that extends the value of existing investments,” said Rob Culbert, president and CEO at Culbert Healthcare Solutions. “Organizational performance is key to success and our team is making more and more observations and recommendations around technology improvements. ConnexaHealth is a trusted partner that will help our clients achieve that goal.”
Connexa’s solutions center on conducting a comprehensive examination of technology within an organization, including people, processes and workflow. As a result, Connexa identifies gaps, redundancies and other potential challenges, and then addresses these areas with technology services and solutions to better position the organization to meet regulatory needs, address value-based care initiatives and improve financial performance.
Culbert’s focus is to help clients utilize best practices and technology to improve patient care, enhance patient experience and drive financial performance. Under the partnership, ConnexaHealth will build on this expertise by providing Culbert clients with a trusted source of IT services and products.
“Connexa’s relationship with Culbert is truly synergistic and creates opportunities for sophisticated groups to realize the potential of their IT investments through a coordinated engagement, where the application of technology is informed by deep subject matter expertise,” said John Beck, ConnexaHealth’s chief product officer. “Since the passage of the HITECH Act, the vast majority of groups possess the technology to meet EHR Incentive Program objectives, but few are able to move beyond implementation to adoption. Connexa and Culbert are singularly focused on healthcare providers, and this partnership will allow us to deliver a powerful combination of capabilities that make meaningful adoption not only possible, but practical.”
