Troy, Mich., February 29, 2016 – CareTech Solutions, a leader in information technology (IT) and end-user interface services for U.S. hospitals and health systems, today announced it will present its annual Rising Star customer awards and exhibit at the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2016 Annual Conference and Exhibition from February 29 – March 4, 2016, in Las Vegas, at booth #1221. The company will demonstrate its clinical service desk, IT performance monitoring and provisioning services, that enhance the end-user experience while collectively helping hospital and health systems ensure the security of protected health information (PHI) and mitigate IT problems, amid increasing cybersecurity risks and a shifting landscape due to healthcare reform.
CareTech Solutions will also showcase three new products, designed to further streamline IT functions and support customers’ focus on patient care and satisfaction, including:
- Application support services, to stabilize day-to-day healthcare IT operations in a high-volume, post-go-live environment through customizable, cost-effective application support services
- Integration services, to support interface engine implementation, migration and support, facilitating the transfer and transformation of data to critical systems throughout the hospital’s environment
- Mobility services, to allow customers to improve patient engagement and satisfaction, through custom-developed mobile applications
“We make it a priority to consistently provide our customers with the tools and services they need to thrive, especially as healthcare delivery transitions to value-based care, and processes must be optimized to promote value and better outcomes,” said Jim Giordano, president and CEO of CareTech Solutions. “To do so, data must be integrated throughout the entire healthcare infrastructure, and rising patient consumerism must be prioritized. We’re pleased to now offer integration services, mobility services and application support services to customers, to help them address these healthcare challenges, advance the end-user experience and optimize patient engagement and clinical outcomes.”
In addition, CareTech Solutions will present 14 customers with 2015/2016 Rising Star Awards, a corporate award program in its ninth year that recognizes clients who exemplify leadership in using information technology as a strategic advantage for their organizations, on Tuesday, March 1 from 10-11 a.m. PT, at HIMSS booth #1221.
