Are you looking to optimize and streamline your healthcare organization’s technology landscape? Do you want to enhance operational efficiency, reduce costs, and improve the overall performance of your applications? Our Application Rationalization services are designed specifically for the healthcare industry, aiming to address these challenges head-on.

Application rationalization is the process of evaluating and optimizing an organization’s application portfolio. It involves analyzing the multitude of applications in use across various departments, such as electronic health records (EHRs), clinical systems, billing and payment systems, technology infrastructure systems, analytics, and more. By assessing each application’s value, cost, functionality, and integration capabilities, we help you make informed decisions about which applications to keep, retire, replace, or consolidate.

We understand the unique complexities of the healthcare sector and the critical role that technology plays in delivering quality patient care. Our team of experienced consultants specializes in application rationalization, offering tailored solutions that align with your organization’s goals, objectives, and regulatory requirements.

Contingency Based Application Rationalization

Our unique contingency based application rationalization services may be an option. After an extensive assessment of your environment, we provide comprehensive services and manage the entire rationalization life cycle. We don’t get paid until you begin to see the savings from the rationalized applications and systems.

How does it work?

  • Application Portfolio Assessment: Our consultants conduct a thorough analysis of your current application landscape, identifying redundancies, outdated systems, and opportunities for consolidation. We assess the value, usage, and performance of each application, considering factors such as user feedback, system dependencies, and business requirements.
  • Roadmap Development: Based on the assessment, we develop a roadmap that outlines a phased approach to optimize your portfolio. We prioritize applications for consolidation, retirement, or replacement, considering factors like interoperability, value, security, scalability, and regulatory compliance. Our roadmap is designed to maximize efficiency, minimize disruption, and align with your organization’s long-term goals.
  • Vendor Evaluation and Selection: If necessary, we assist in evaluating alternative vendors or solutions that best meet your healthcare organization’s requirements. We help you navigate the vendor landscape, comparing options and conducting due diligence to ensure a seamless transition and integration of new applications into your environment.
  • Change Management and Implementation Support: We understand that any technology transformation requires a change in organizational processes and user behavior. Our consultants provide guidance and support throughout the implementation process, assisting with governance, change management strategies, training, and adoption plans. We ensure that your staff embraces the new technology and workflows, minimizing resistance and maximizing the benefits of the rationalization initiative.
  • Ongoing Optimization and Support: Application rationalization is an ongoing process, and we offer continuous support to monitor the performance of your optimized application portfolio. We help you identify emerging technologies, assess their potential impact on your organization, and make recommendations for further enhancements and improvements.
