Consultant Development Program Offers 25% Cost Savings

At Stoltenberg Consulting, we’re excited to celebrate the growth of our unique health IT education initiative the Consultant Development Program. To date, 13 consultants have graduated from the program designed to provide hospitals with first-time certified consultants to alleviate the HIT staffing shortage plaguing the industry. The program continues to deliver cost-effective results to hospital customers with over 25 percent increase in cost savings on IT projects.

“I started this program with minimal experience, but by the end, I had gained certain insights in health IT I may have otherwise only learned through multiple years in the industry,” a recent program graduate said. “From formal vendor training for multiple certifications, to my time taking calls for a university healthcare system with the Stoltenberg Help Desk Service Line, the program greatly prepared me for working and genuinely helping end-users.”

Consultant Development Program graduates gained considerable experience through direct involvement in implementation and optimization projects in hospitals around the country, allowing them to establish expertise in clinical, ambulatory, document management and financial areas. Overall, the Consultant I’s spent more than 2,000 hours in training for projects, nearly 9,000 hours on projects and over 15,000 hours serving the hospital IT help desk service line from Stoltenberg, over the two-year program.

Previous graduates of the Consultant Development Program have become fully active team members, and in some cases, team leads on IT projects within hospitals across the country. Mentoring provided by senior consultants have allowed the Consultant I’s to far exceed expectations normally set for young HIT professionals.

Dare to Ask What If for Health IT

As Stoltenberg prepares for our HIMSS14 Conference appearance, we’d like to share with you our promotional campaign. Yesterday, we announced a new campaign designed to promote the company’s capabilities in HIT consulting. The What If For Health IT? campaign poses a series of questions that address ideal scenarios to solving IT problems that ultimately lead to increased productivity and financial performance, and improved care.

Stoltenberg Consulting created the What If? campaign with the hopes of engaging the industry to dare to ask how we can achieve HIT’s future.

Find out more about What If here: http://prn.to/1lywkY3

Join us to ask What If by tweeting questions to #WhatIf4HIT.

Examples of questions are:
What if small changes had multi-million dollar savings?
What if you knew the departments causing A/R delays?
What if clinicians had information for decisions before needing it?
What if patient wait times could be tracked across the enterprise?
What if you knew the most cost effective way to deliver service?

Whatever your question, tweet with hashtag #WhatIf4HIT to help Stoltenberg or share the campaign release announcement on social media via LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.
