Jacksonville Beach, FLOptimum Healthcare IT, a leading healthcare IT staffing and consulting services company, announced that to further meet the demands of the healthcare industry, it has expanded their Community Connect practice which is dedicated to improving healthcare in communities across the country. To comply with Meaningful Use and Healthcare Reform, a growing number of physician offices and hospitals are choosing to partner with large healthcare organizations to integrate their electronic health records (EHR). Community Connect enables Epic’s customers to extend a shared EHR to these smaller community hospitals and physicians. This collaboration allows smaller organizations to have access to a more integrated and robust EHR.

To enhance the Community Connect practice, Optimum Healthcare IT has hired two of the best in the industry to lead the practice; Executive Directors Jon Straffon and Kelli Mangino, previously of Cleveland Clinic. At Cleveland Clinic, Ms. Mangino, and Mr. Straffon were responsible for the development and implementation of Epic’s first Community Connect program. With their experience in the industry, leadership, tools, and proven methodology, Optimum’s Connect practice is now equipped to be the best in the market.

“Health Systems who are looking to implement an EHR extension program are becoming vendors of the Epic software. We recognize that patient care is the priority, and we want to be the partner that helps these healthcare organizations extend their reach without losing focus on the patients,” said Jon Straffon, Executive Director of Optimum’s Connect Practice. “As the top-rated Healthcare IT Consulting Services firm in the country, we feel that enhancing this service allows Optimum to assist our clients across the full continuum of care,” added Jason Mabry, President of Optimum Healthcare IT.

As Optimum Healthcare IT enhances their Community Connect practice, the firm is currently engaged in one of the largest hospital Connect projects in the country.
