established for 2017. Whether from
the perspective of meeting market
demand through our various service
offerings or being on target to meet
our growth goals for the year, 2017

Consulting: How would you
describe your firm’s outlook
for 2018? Where do you see
the most opportunities?
Smith: As we approach 2018,
we continue to look ahead, anticipating our clients’ needs in an
ever-changing and most dynamic
environment. Many organizations
have implemented their core enterprise technology solutions and
are asking, “What’s next?” The
next phase will be to harvest the
information out of these systems to
radically optimize the delivery of
care. The infusion of information
into the healthcare delivery process
is of tremendous importance. This
will be a key differentiator in creating a unique patient experience.

say are your firm’s biggest
challenges in 2018?
Smith: The healthcare industry is
challenged with a level of uncer-
tainty due to what the new health-
care bill and the next four years will
bring to the industry. From a con-
sulting perspective, our challenge
will be shaping our services to react
to that environment. Regardless of
the landscape, our constant goal is
to create efficient environments and
operations for our clients.

named one of Consulting’s
Fastest Growing Firms mean
to your firm, your employees
and your clients?
Smith: Being recognized by
Consulting as a Fastest Growing Firm
validates we continue to reach our
growth goals as a work family. As
these goals are established, we openly share them through multiple firm-wide communication channels. Our
clients delight in seeing us named as
one of Consulting magazine’s Fastest Growing Firms, knowing they
were such a direct and significant
part of making our growth dreams
become a reality.
