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 assisted us with strategic planning, vendor selection, contract negotiations and data conversions with great success.

With regards to contract negotiations, they handled all the typical contract issues and saved us valuable time and effort in the process. They pushed for various protections on our behalf, some of which we would not have thought of.

By the time we had to be more directly involved, 80% of the work was done.
