Excellence Through Experience

CharlesRiver Advisors assigns only seasoned, experienced, senior level staff to our consulting engagements. This experience and expertise coupled with our SMART methodologies allows our staff to get more done in less time and at less cost to our customers. Our partners have performed 100s of engagements.

Customized Healthcare IT solutions

CharlesRiver Advisors has extensive experience in hospitals and markets of all sizes. Over the past 15 years we have servied 175+ clients and 60 of those are Critical Access Hospitals. 

We find that medium to small hospitals typically have to address the same information technology challenges as much larger medical centers, yet have only a fraction of the staffing and fiscal budget.

The large medical centers and IDNs may have more resources, but often face more complex organizational and integration issues.

In brief, each healthcare provider niche colors IT issues in a different manner. Our objective is to identify your unique issues and to work closely with your institution to develop the appropriate IT solutions.

CharlesRiver Advisors helped us negotiate a couple of computer hardware and software contracts over the past few months and were very pleased with their services.

The proposed contract from the vendor was very complicated and contained "high tech" language that the average reader, like myself, did not understand.

CharlesRiver Advisors was able to go through this contract in great detail to insure that our Hospital had optimal legal and operational protections. They were able to negotiate terms that we never would have dreamed, including better pricing and maintenance contract coverage.
