“Meredith Ferguson and HCIT Consulting have been an invaluable resource to both our regional and national organizations to streamline the patient flow process and capture significant efficiencies within the care coordination areas. This work has enabled each of the regions to significantly reduce costs, while optimizing the patient outcomes across multiple, diverse populations. HCIT helped redesign and standardize our workflow and content in the outpatient setting and to 125+ inpatient hospitals and skilled nursing facilities.
