ESD Celebrates 25th Anniversary
Healthcare IT consulting firm ESD celebrated its 25th year in business on Wednesday, marking a milestone in the company’s history. Since its inception, ESD has deployed over 1,600 clinical IT experts to assist over 90 U.S. hospitals with healthcare technology transitions.
ESD was founded by President, Joe Torti in Toledo, Ohio and began as an Oracle Development Partner. Through the years, Mr. Torti built relationships with clinical health IT colleagues and engaged them as
employees as the business began to grow.
Joe has this to say about the company’s milestone anniversary, “I never dreamed that this company would have evolved into what it is today. Over the years, we have developed strong relationships with our clients and consulting network that have contributed to ESD’s success. I look forward to the years ahead and would like to thank those that have helped make that success possible.”
Today, ESD has built its cultivated consultant network to include over 10,000 healthcare IT experts whom are contracted with on a per-engagement basis. The firm has deployed hundreds of resources simultaneously for healthcare IT implementations across the country and has built much of its success on providing go-live support resources for the first critical weeks of a healthcare IT transition.
Over the years, ESD has progressed into a full-cycle healthcare IT implementation firm providing beginning to end support for all phases of change relating to EHR technology. Their pre-activation service offering includes Automated Testing, Training, Build and Configuration and Clinical Transformation to assist with the preparation of implementation.
Through the go-live phase, ESD supports its clients with Clinical Service Desk and Patient Portal Help Desk Support services, increasing adoption and usability among clinical users and physician staff. Following the golive process, the firm also provides Optimization services to assist hospitals to make the most out of their technology investments by ensuring that features and workflows are designed to best support patient care to promote comprehensive and accurate documentation of patient records.
