Carbondale, CO – December 14, 2012 – Orchestrate Healthcare announces today they are the proud recipient of the prestigious 2012 Best in KLAS – Technical Services award.

Orchestrate-HealthAdditionally, they have received honors as leaders in the Staff Augmentation, Implementation Clinical Supportive and the new HIE category.  “We are thrilled,” comments President Charlie Cook, “Orchestrate Healthcare has four core competencies:  EMR Clinical Implementation, Integration, HIE Consulting and Staff Augmentation – and we now have KLAS recognition across the board.”  The company is not new to the Best in KLAS Winner’s Circle – this is their third year to win Best in KLAS Technical Services, previously awarded in 2008 and 2011.  “For our six-year-old company to win three out of five years and place second in the other two years is pretty remarkable,” muses Cook, “at a time where healthcare technical services are significantly in demand, this recognition by our clients is unmatched within the industry.”

Wood Behind the Arrows
Mr. Cook has a clever way of describing his company’s model of success: “We put all the wood behind four arrows.” Translation: By focusing solely on four core competencies, we are able to provide specialized knowledge, expertise and unparalleled solutions to our clients, allowing them to compete effectively in today’s rapidly evolving healthcare IT marketplace.
Fueling the evolution of healthcare currently are pressing Federal mandates – both existing and those due in 2014.  What does this mean for Orchestrate Healthcare?  Healthcare demanding additional IT staff, and an increasing need for qualified HIE consultants.  KLAS has added a new HIE category in 2012 in response to this activity and recognizes Staff Augmentation as a unique category as well.  “We’re especially pleased with our 2nd place rating in the new HIE category – we’re in the top of the big four firms qualified to be recognized in this new category – with an additional 16 unranked firms participating in HIE. We’re not the new kids in this emerging market, and our ratings show that our clients appreciate our commitment to quality.”  As to the top finish in the Staff Augmentation category; Mr Cook quips, “our clients see our consultants as an extension of their own team.  Nothing new here, just the industry’s best consultants working to exceed our client’s expectations every day!  That’s our mission.”

Powerfully Positioned for 2013
Reading the market needs, positioning for growth, yet maintaining the deep commitment to quality for their clients are not new processes for Orchestrate Healthcare.  Building upon years of strong relationship with healthcare software organizations, Orchestrate Healthcare earlier this year brought Jerry Roberts on board as VP, Epic Practice, to provide focused development with Epic clients.  Mr. Roberts actively uses his two decade plus experience of working hand-in-hand with Epic, now with Orchestrate Healthcare clients.  Having seen Epic’s technologies evolve, implemented them across a continuum of care environments, and sharing in  their fundamental passion for delivering exceptional solutions and service, he is a dynamic presence on the Orchestrate Healthcare team.  Combine this dynamic force in the Epic space with the 2012 Best in KLAS award and recognition, and Orchestrate Healthcare is poised for tremendous leadership within the healthcare IT environment.
