About Our Hospital Consulting Services
Harris Affinity consultants understand the challenges of hospital staffing, administration and system migration because many have worked in a hospital environment.
With licensed systems for use at hospitals across North America, Harris Affinity has a 25-year track record of successful implementations for a wide variety of healthcare organizations, from critical access hospitals to large integrated delivery networks (IDNs), including clinics, hospitals and health systems.
Harris Affinity enhances the impact of its software solutions through effective training, best practice implementations and professional consulting services.
One Consultant Through the Entire Implementation Journey
Embarking on a new software implementation can feel overwhelming. That’s why Harris Affinity assigns a dedicated consultant to your organization, so that you’ll have an ally through the entire process—from discovery to go-live—who will have a deep understanding of your unique needs.
- Discovery – Your Harris Affinity consultant walks through your organization’s business processes and tailors the implementation plan to meet your particular requirements.
- Conversion – Harris Affinity can easily convert data from virtually any other system. The four-step data loading process (load, convert, verify, publish) ensures the integrity of your data.
- Testing – Harris Affinity’s three-phase testing (functional, integration and user acceptance) is another way to ensure only valid data makes it to production.
- Training – Flexible training options let you choose between onsite (classroom) or offsite (webinar). Harris Affinity’s train-the-trainer approach has been proven successful in more than 540 deployments.
In addition to a traditional, on-premise offering (where the software is hosted on your servers), Harris Affinity provides hosting options (where the software is hosted in our data center).
Harris Affinity offers dedicated access to a client’s hosted services via a point-to-point VPN tunnel, 24x7x365, to our Austin, TX data center which is certified in many aspects of security. Harris Affinity’s team of IT experts manage and mitigate potential risks, perform routine system reviews to reduce and prevent downtime, and provide reports showing the status of environments and activities performed. This allows clients to focus on patients and health care providers.
In a constantly shifting healthcare environment, it’s important to have a long-term partner you can count on. Harris Affinity provides a variety of professional services to clients when needs arise. Whether an organization is undergoing a staffing shortage, high turnover, an influx of new staff members or a reassessment of business processes, the Harris Affinity team is here to help.
