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.

We were very impressed with Optimum’s Cerner knowledge and appreciated the hard work to deploy our new system.
