Advisory

Cumberland consultants understand the healthcare industry and bring deep technical knowledge to each client project. Leveraging this experience and expertise, we provide clients with strategic advisory services to ensure IT decisions align with overall business goals.

We examine clients’ business and IT functions to identify areas of improvement, whether clinical, financial or operational. Our clients use the assessments and recommendations we provide to reduce costs, achieve regulatory compliance, and enhance care and service delivery.


“Undertaking a systemwide EHR implementation and a major operational redesign at the same time was a daunting task for our team. Cumberland stepped in and provided the third-party guidance and expertise we needed to complete both initiatives successfully.”Jesse Tamplen, MSW, LCSW, MHA, FACHE, Practice Administrator of Mental Health and Child Development at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland

As part of our advisory services, we conduct assessments for payers, providers and life sciences organizations to determine IT requirements and help them identify and select systems that meet their needs. As a vendor-neutral firm, we have experience with many of the leading systems and are able to provide objective recommendations that are in our clients’ best interests, not ours. We also oversee planning for IT implementation projects to ensure our clients have a roadmap to follow and all teams are thoroughly prepared for technical and workflow transitions. Projects range from broad exercises to focused package implementation strategies.
