As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), your organization prides itself on delivering essential care to underserved communities. But taking advantage of the latest advancements in Health Information Technology (HIT), while operating on a limited budget and resources, can make managing annual IT expenses an intricate balancing act.

That’s where we come in. Using our managed services platform, MyConnectSolutions specializes in helping FQHCs reduce their annual IT costs by up to 60% – while gaining access to best-in-class technology and 24/7 support.

To help leaders of FQHCs understand our customized approach to healthcare IT, we follow a three-step ROI analysis process. In this blog post, we’ll give you an idea of what to expect during an in-depth ROI analysis – and explain how we can help your organization deliver efficient, reliable HIT services – at a fraction of the cost.

Our 3-Step ROI Analysis

Step One: Discovery – Understanding Your Unique Landscape

We start each ROI analysis with a simple yet crucial step – the discovery phase.

Every FQHC operates within its own distinct IT ecosystem, driven by specific needs and challenges. To understand these intricacies, we begin with an initial 30-minute consultation. This introductory discussion provides an opportunity for the MyConnectSolutions team to understand your current IT infrastructure. It also allows you to openly discuss your organization’s pain points, operational bottlenecks, and goals for the future.

After our initial conversation, we then use an automated collector (powered by Auvik) to gather a variety of data points from across your network – including information on your network speed, performance, and security.

By combining an in-person discussion with hard data points, we can quickly gain an understanding of your existing HIT infrastructure and identify areas for enhancement. This lays the foundation for a collaborative partnership, built upon the principles of transparency and shared goals.

Step Two: Gap Analysis – Bridging the Divide Between Current and Ideal

Having grasped the nuances of your HIT ecosystem, including the strengths and weaknesses of your network and infrastructure, we can begin the process of analysis and comparison. During the second step, information gathered during the discovery stage acts as a compass, guiding the creation of a comprehensive gap analysis. Think of this analysis as a map that charts a path between your current IT infrastructure and the standard of industry best practices.

In this phase, the MyConnectSolutions team will evaluate your IT, infrastructure, and telecommunications systems. Through meticulous assessment, we identify gaps that might be inhibiting your FQHC from achieving optimal efficiency and cost savings.

When the gap analysis is complete, we’ll present a side-by-side comparison of each element of your HIT ecosystem, with an assessment of whether it aligns with current best practices. For more information on these best practices, read our white paper: HIT Best Practices for Federally Qualified Health Centers.

With a clear picture of your FQHC’s current position in the technology landscape, you can begin to see the opportunities that lie ahead.

Step Three: Customized Quote – Unveiling Savings Potential

Using insights gained during the gap analysis, MyConnectSolutions creates a comprehensive strategy tailored to your FQHC’s unique HIT journey. We’ll generate a customized quote that outlines the cost of aligning your current IT services with the recommended industry best practices. Then, we can compare it to your current IT costs to provide an accurate projection of your potential savings.

Armed with this information, you’ll gain a clear understanding of the return on investment that can be gained by working with the team at MyConnectSolutions. All of the information from your ROI analysis will be delivered in an executive summary, which includes a recommended course of action and an initial project plan. And any additional SOW’s needed to implement the plan will also be included, so your leadership team will have a comprehensive view of the overall project costs.
