Strategic Planning

Our consultants have provided strategic planning and technical assistance for federal agencies, states, and large Fortune 500, mid-size, and start-up companies. We have assisted with major project portfolios across the country totaling more than $3 billion. A committed partner, we are invested in clients’ ongoing success. We know how to listen and believe good strategic planning not only charts the challenges ahead, but sets the goals to ensure future success.

Business Operations

HealthTech Solutions helps improve the efficiency and effectiveness of business processes. We have conducted enterprise-level assessments for a number of large clients and have particular expertise in implementing best practices, process transformations, benchmarks, and recovery. We have decades of experience in finance, purchasing, information technology, and operational processing.

IV&V

We focus on providing direct and practical recommendations for Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) services. Our consultants have decades of experience on both the client and the vendor side, offering a unique and valuable perspective. Our methods conform to industry standards throughout the development and project lifecycles, and all engagements are led by Project Management Institute-certified professionals. Our perspective focuses on continuous improvement to ensure project progress and comprehensive quality.

Project Management

HealthTech Solutions consultants combine extensive project management experience with first-hand project implementation skills. We have led large-scale implementations as well as enterprise-level assessments. Our team consists of seasoned consultants with technical, operational, and health IT program expertise, and Project Management Institute-certified professionals lead all engagements according to industry best practices. We also have experience training government staff on project management skills. See more on our project management competency here.

Project Recovery

Our recovery specialists can help get projects back on scope and on schedule. We never take a one-size-fits-all approach to project recovery, and we excel at core project management practices with short delivery cycles and rigorous quality checks. We protect our clients’ trust and will never accept an engagement unless we believe we can create value in excess of our fees. Our approach is designed for a quick turnaround and focuses on identifying achievable results.

Audit Services

Our audit services can assist states with reviewing and updating an existing audit strategy; further developing an audit plan in response to Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services requirements; and conducting post-payment Meaningful Use audits. We have been conducting states’ EHR Provider Incentive Program post-payment Meaningful Use audits for several years. Our staff provide EHR auditing technical assistance for CMS as part of the Medicaid EHR Team (MeT) including developing the Stage 2 Audit Toolkit and auditing training manuals, conducting the Auditing Community of Practice, and researching questions and issues posed by state Medicaid agencies. Working with CMS has given our team a nationwide perspective of the best auditing practices, and our expertise reduces start-up time and minimizes risks for our clients.

Proposal & Contract Support

The depth and breadth of our team sets us apart in delivering procurement solutions. With a comprehensive set of skills, tools, and methodologies, we can assist vendors in responding to government procurements. Our experience in procuring state systems provides the right blend of policy, technical, strategic, and business operation expertise required to manage a successful procurement. We offer:

  • Project management
  • Requirements review
  • Feasibility and readiness reviews
  • Strategy development
  • Proposal production and submission
  • Technical review

Human services program development and implementation

Our team members have worked on the state and federal teams implementing major program changes through federal waivers and grants. Collectively, we have multiple decades of experience in program and policy development; operations and administration; and implementation and oversight. We have the experience to help design program changes, as well as negotiate their implementation.
