A few years ago, I transplanted my family from the south to Washington DC. I love the Capital, for its history, its influence, but we quickly realized we had left Mayberry and arrived on Jupiter. Horns honked and people moved around briskly. Maybe it was us – our naivete — or maybe it was the community we had arrived in. But we quickly realized: “If you order french fries, you get french fries.” And only french fries. Months of dining out were spent, only to find that our presumed “condiments” were not standard with our order. We would have to ask for them and specify the quantity. French Fries and 2 ketchups, please.
Well I clicked my heels three times and eventually moved us back to our Mayberry. It’s been three years and my son and I will still giggle together when we order french fries and see someone going out of his or her way to offer ketchup. And when we say “Yes, Please”, we get several packets.
Consulting in Healthcare is no different. We’ve grown accustomed to the “build to spec” approach. You get exactly what you asked for.
I’m thankful to be a part of Perficient and the Oracle Healthcare Business Intelligence team. We share a common philosophy – understand what the customer wants to achieve, coach and advise available options, design and deliver a solution that fulfills their NOW problem and simultaneously prepared them for the next 5 years. It’s not just a report – it’s Healthcare Analytics.
…and yes, we do say “Please and Thank You!”
