The independent market intelligence organization recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market. The Hicuity Health Shared Services model offers health systems the opportunity to implement a customized telemedicine solution without the need to develop the requisite operational, technical, and tele-clinical expertise from scratch. Leveraging Hicuity Health’s experience, technology infrastructure, proprietary HUB workflow management platform, staffing, support teams, and reporting capabilities, Hicuity Health Shared Services enables a system to rapidly and smoothly deliver its own, customized telemedicine program at scale. Additionally, the Hicuity Health Shared Services offering provides proven technical and operational expertise and infrastructure via the company’s network of 12 integrated clinical operations centers. The technology enables connectivity to and between all operations centers and client facilities. Shared Services clients can add a customized clinical operations center on its campus and also leverage existing Hicuity Health network locations. “Health systems interested in implementing an acute care telemedicine program typically face a daunting build-it-yourself challenge,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “With Hicuity Health’s ‘breakthrough’ Shared Services model, large health systems are able to take advantage of the highest levels of customization, program flexibility, and best in class service options across multiple in-patient telemedicine service lines.
