How We Deliver Value

IT’s role in healthcare has shifted from strategic enabler to key driver of business transformation and innovation, and Impact Advisors has been there for it all. Hundreds of the industry’s foremost IT leaders have put their trust in us to help them develop and implement IT strategies and optimize the appropriateness, effectiveness, security, and strategic value of their technology architecture, infrastructure, application portfolio, IT governance, and human assets.

We assimilate best practices from healthcare and other industries to create flexible, scalable, and future-proof strategic plans with actionable, value-generating near and long-term roadmaps. We consider your organization’s unique business strategies, resources, and culture, engaging your leadership in the development and deployment of the IT strategy that they help create and drive.

With every engagement, Impact Advisors focuses on prioritizing the highest value targets, and our approach is collaborative, equipping your teams with tools and skills they’ll use to drive more, sustainable value.

Choosing the right solution can be challenging. Now add the timeline pressure of a looming board decision. Impact Advisors has led more solution evaluation and selection projects over the last few years than any other firm in the industry. From an options analysis to a comprehensive selection process, we are objective and thorough, leveraging our deep knowledge of all the major vendors and their capabilities and accelerating your ability to make an informed choice.

A new EHR or ERP system is one of the biggest investment decisions a healthcare organization will ever make. We can help you build a solid business case and define an accurate budget by determining the total cost of ownership and expected return of your major IT investments.

Modernizing core technology and migrating to the cloud are inevitable. Digital transformation can’t happen without it. Leveraging deep business acumen, clinical systems integration, and analytics capabilities, along with the power and scale of cloud computing platforms, we deliver agile solutions purpose-built to further healthcare innovation and digital transformation.

Our experts will help you evaluate and choose the right technology or platform on which to build desired digital health and analytics capabilities. We’ll also prepare your organization to consume from the cloud and absorb the organizational impacts of the shift.

Impact Advisors can help clients grow and improve their medical imaging tools, processes, and operations through solid strategies, plans, technology deployments, and targeted optimization. We have expertise in all aspects of medical imaging, including cardiology, radiology, and digital pathology and extensive knowledge of and experience using the market’s leading imaging technologies and tools.

Navigating the complexities of healthcare regulation is a highly specialized skill. Healthcare organizations engage Impact Advisors’ experts to interpret the rules and develop actionable strategies to achieve compliance within the required timeframes. If needed, we can deploy resources to supplement your team’s build and configuration efforts. We can also help you establish a formal compliance program, tooling and staffing it until your own team can be ramped up.

In healthcare, downtime and data loss aren’t just inconvenient, they can be catastrophic. Impact Advisors delivers resiliency by minimizing disruptions and their business impacts and establishing plans to expeditiously return to normal operations after problems occur.

We provide the full spectrum of industry-standard Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery services, tailored to your organization’s risk tolerance, capability, and maturity. Collaborating with your stakeholders, we create prioritized strategies to steadily advance your resiliency.
