Health Information Technology

No single industry has been affected more by the pressures to improve the quality of care and reduce costs — all while meeting the ever-increasing regulatory changes and mandates. Our IT strategy and cybersecurity experts guide and support healthcare executives as they enhance infrastructure, security, and electronic health records (EHR), and they establish standards to ensure integration and data sharing.

We help healthcare organizations embrace technology changes to improve data integrity and compliance, enhance operations, and embrace predictive analytics. Our expertise includes technology and digital strategy, process consulting, technology acquisition, project assurance, enterprise system optimization, infrastructure services, technology assessment, and cybersecurity.

Our clients say

As UPHP grew over the past 20years, our IT department kept evolving, but frustration began to set in regarding our processes. We realized we needed outside experts to conduct a thorough IT assessment, looking at not only our processes, but our people as well.

The Plante Moran team came in and did just that. Their IT consultants worked with us to clarify our goals and expectations and worked hands-on with our staff. They provided clear, comprehensive communication and their end-results were spot on. They walked us through their findings and recommendations, taking the time to explain everything and answer any questions. They left us with a concise strategic plan that will help us get from point A to point B.

I feel they went above and beyond working with our IT director, providing the tools and imparting the knowledge we need to keep moving forward.
