Healthcare IT Design that Drives Expected Outcomes

The patient and family healthcare journey starts when they leave their home and continues even after they return. Throughout this journey patients must be digitally connected with their care providers and their supporting interoperable health systems. Each step along the way depends on healthcare information that engages and connects the patient, family members, visitors, caregivers, support staff, and healthcare vendors – ultimately enabling the delivery of safe and high-quality patient care.

Recognizing the importance of this connectivity, IMEG brings a holistic and collaborative multi-disciplinary design approach to HIT, from program expertise to technology design to medical equipment planning. This approach puts the patient, caregiver, and connected care experience at the forefront while providing the following deliverables to the client:

  • Consideration of current state to recognize investments and existing patient care quality, learn from the past, and build into the future
  • Early establishment of a collaborative vision that is aligned to the program
  • Technology that is embedded early in design with continuous management throughout the project lifecycle to meet the patients’ and caregivers’ expectations
  • Alignment with medical equipment planning and procurement to support convergence and awareness of shared resources, integration, and connectivity
  • An integrated HIT roadmap and detailed program that is aligned with construction to avoid costly change orders and value engineering
  • Quality assurance and commissioning to validate user acceptance
  • Change management, training, and adoption guidance to mitigate issues upon activation
