The Healthcare Division supports programs that aim to revolutionize healthcare through data-driven transformation. We are focused on improving patient experience and population health while reducing the cost of healthcare with innovation, technology, and metrics.
As a 501(c)(3) and the state designated entity responsible for developing and managing the New Jersey Health Information Network (NJHIN) on behalf of the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH), we work with healthcare delivery organizations to help them participate and benefit from government sponsored programs.
Since our division was formed in 2015, we’ve served over 12 million patients in New Jersey. With our most recent Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicaid Enterprise System (MES) certification and HITRUST Risk-based, 2-year (r2) certified status, the team also helps to further expand clinical data interoperability throughout the state while prioritizing top-level information security stature.
At the core, we are an advisory services company that enables innovation, transformation and quality improvement through a variety of consulting and technology solutions, some of which are offered through our for-profit arm launched in 2018 called Healthcare Innovation Solutions.
