After going taking their ideas through the Delta I-Fund program, the team at James Henry, Inc is launching a new company, consulting services, and technology for healthcare. The new company, Healthcare Systematics, launched Wednesday, August 21st. This technology and systematic process is to help smaller hospitals, large specialty practices, and out-patient surgery center in their assessment, selection, and implementation of new software technology and patient engagement.
Ancil Lea, President and CEO, of James Henry, Inc says, “This is something that happened over a luncheon conversation with two CEOs”. Since we have worked with over 2,000 providers, clinics and hospitals since 1988, selling software solutions, they wanted me to ‘change’ rolls and help them in their selection of new software and implementation for their hospital and out-patient surgery center.” Lea and his team have developed a systematic process and business intelligence/selection technology for helping make these software technology decisions. They have already been working with several hospitals, surgery centers and clinics in the area.
After being approached by Winrock International about the Delta I-Fund program, James Henry, Inc applied and was accepted to prove and/or incubate this idea further. What has come out of this extensive program, is a new company and technology, said Lea. “We are announcing the formation of a company specifically to helping these hospitals, clinics, and surgery centers designed for making these decisions and helping see the purchase through to adoption.”
“What we discovered in this DIF program is that unless you are a large healthcare entity, they don’t have the expertise or the bandwidth (time) to make the best decision regarding medical software technology, which is rapidly evolving. What we do goes beyond making a decision, but sees it through adoption and system success! They need an experienced – trusted partner to come alongside and walk them through this process and system we’ve developed, and see them succeed.” Ancil Lea said
Scot Davis, CEO of Arkansas Urology, said, “Having an expert on our team to help in the selection of software for our surgery center took the pressure off our administration and was critical for us to make the best decision for our practice.”
