Beta for Cerner’s Latest TIP Methodology and Model Content

Optimum Healthcare IT, a Best in KLAS healthcare staffing and consulting services firm, announced that on August 3, 2019, Ellis Medicine went live on a new electronic health record (EHR), Cerner Millennium. Through Optimum’s effective project leadership, detailed planning, comprehensive training, and a proven methodology, the project was a success.

In 2017, Ellis Medicine awarded Optimum with the Cerner Millennium implementation project. Using the Cerner Millennium’s TIP process for which Ellis was a beta site, Optimum initially provided project management and advisory services. Training and education started in January of 2019 and saw 1,300 people successfully trained. Beginning in August 2019, Optimum supported the go-live through the command center. This project was a test of Cerner’s new Agile Methodology and Model solution, and the result was a successful implementation of Cerner’s Model Suite of products.

This achievement is the result of a joint effort between Optimum and the team at Ellis Medicine, said Jason Jarrett, Chief Executive Officer at Optimum Healthcare IT. We have worked hard with our partners at Ellis to ensure that this project was a success, and I want to thank the Optimum team for their hard work with helping Ellis Medicine meet their strategic goals.

Optimum Healthcare IT offers highly-rated KLAS training and activation services to assist healthcare organizations in bringing their EHR systems live, and ensuring users are fully trained and supported throughout their strategic initiatives. Optimum can customize our offering to fit the needs of your organization. Whether it is a phased approach or a big-bang go-live, our leadership, training, and support experts are ready to provide the best solutions and services the industry has to offer. With our staff, methodology, and tools, Optimum has the experience to organize, schedule, and manage any size go-live.

The partnership between Optimum Healthcare IT and Ellis Medicine resulted in a smooth transition from our old Soarian system to our new Cerner system that will enable us to serve our community better, said Ron McKinnon, Chief Information Officer, Ellis Medicine. We were very impressed with Optimum’s Cerner knowledge and appreciated the hard work to deploy our new system.
