ATLANTA, GA (November 11, 2011) - Jackson
Healthcare, an Atlanta-based organization of staffing and
technology companies, has announced the creation of the new health
IT staffing firm, HealthIT Project Managers.
According to Jackson, the new company focuses exclusively on
supporting CIOs with their IT projects rather than offering
traditional consulting engagements. The company's primary
interest is in projects that tend to get delayed or never started
due to transformative engagements like electronic medical records
"Our project managers join hospital teams on temporary
assignments to provide a service, not a product," said Jack
Williams, president of HealthIT Project Managers. "Instead of
providing the typical end-of-engagement report with recommendations
on what needs to be done, we provide hospital CIOs with seasoned
talent to complete assigned projects, then get out."
Hospital CIOs typically face a wide portfolio of projects that
span the technical, clinical and facility areas of the
hospital. Major initiatives, like EMR, can consume hospital
IT resources, leaving other projects either unfinished or never
started. This has created the need for flexible staffing
alternatives without having to add full-time employees.
Examples of hospital project management needs beyond EMR include
Windows 7 migration, HL7 data extraction, HIPAA auditing, revenue
cycle support and facilities expansion or renovation.
"By not trying to be a large consulting company or waste time
trying to place non-healthcare IT professionals, we're able to
bring savings to hospitals in a unique way," said Williams.
The new company is based in Jackson Healthcare's Atlanta
HealthIT Project Managers is a national staffing company that
specializes in providing health IT project management contractors
to hospitals of all sizes. For more information visitwww.healthitprojectmanagers.com.
