I recently connected with one of our lead business consultants, Wayne Ause, to discuss how he impacts healthcare clients. We discussed what a typical day in this role includes. Perficient promises to challenge, champion, and celebrate our people. I loved hearing Wayne’s thoughts on how Perficient keeps this promise by valuing his voice, and I’m sure you will too.

Wayne, thank you for joining me today. I’d love to hear about your role as a lead business consultant at Perficient. What does a typical day or project look like for you in this role?

My role can be described as a utility player, which isn’t all that obvious from my title as lead business consultant in our healthcare business unit. I am fortunate to work at the crossroads of my two greatest professional interest areas: technology and healthcare.

I strive to positively impact clients in the advancement of their efforts to service key healthcare audiences online. Audience segments in healthcare primarily include patients and healthcare services beneficiaries. However, these segments can also include a whole slew of related stakeholders like healthcare providers, insured customers, professionals in the payor space, industry partners, caregivers (family members, professionals at home, and clinic-based), and consumers of healthcare products.

A typical day for me doesn’t really exist, and that’s partly why I enjoy my current role at Perficient. My daily activities include the following:

  • Directing program efforts with client leadership
  • Documenting process and decision points
  • Mapping out strategy and providing input on the execution of deliverables
  • Coordinating parties in the execution of a project
  • And sometimes just plain old cheerleading (which is easy to do at Perficient as we often have plenty of project team successes to celebrate)

I decided to work for Perficient to reach my career goals and expand my experience in a variety of exciting technologies affecting healthcare.

I continue to try and do my best, partially to continue the support of my professional trajectory. However, this is mostly because I am continually renewed and invigorated when I see the effects of my efforts to help real people dealing with real healthcare issues.

In my experience, people are rarely having their best day when they seek medical assistance. I feel my job is to help ease their journey as much as possible by removing barriers to care in the technology space.

I am grateful for all the opportunities and support offered by Perficient. I highly recommend our organization as a career destination for anyone in this space. It’s an exciting time to be in healthcare and technology, and Perficient is the perfect place to see the blend of the two come to life.
