Beacon Partners Unveils Expansion of Managed Services Offering

Offering provides healthcare organizations with ongoing, 24/7 system support

WEYMOUTH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Healthcare management consulting firm Beacon Partners today unveiled their newest Managed Services offerings, providing healthcare organizations with ongoing, around-the-clock system support.

Beacon Partners is expanding its Managed Services offering to help healthcare organizations enhance the use of technology they currently have, comply with HITECH regulations and minimize their operational costs, which ultimately provides them with the ability to focus on their patients.

“Once a healthcare organization’s enterprise strategy is developed, information technology implementation is complete and clinician adoption challenges are resolved, many times these same organizations need further ongoing support to help manage their technology and operational challenges,” explains Ralph P. Fargnoli, Jr., president and CEO of Beacon Partners.

Beacon Partners Managed Services offering includes:

  • PMS/EHR Application Support (Practice Management Software/Electronic Health Record): Resolving Level 1 technical issues, avoiding future problems and ensuring availability of an organization’s systems and applications. PMS/EHRs support: Allscripts, GE Centricity, Epic and NextGen.
  • Legacy Application Support: Supporting and maintaining legacy software systems, such as Allscripts, GE Centricity, Epic and MEDITECH, while healthcare organizations dedicate resources for migration to new technology.
  • Email Hosting: Providing a scalable email solution that will streamline communications between employees and their patients.

Beacon Partners recently signed a three-year Level 1 Application Support Service agreement with Healthcare South, a member of the South Shore Physician Hospital Association in Weymouth, MA, to support their Allscripts EHR system. In addition, Beacon Partners has signed an agreement for email hosting services.

“The ongoing success of our implementation of Allscripts is largely due to the support, leadership, knowledge base and commitment provided to us by Beacon Partners,” said Patricia M. Spedden, practice administrator for Healthcare South, Cohasset Family Practice. “They were vital in supporting us through every challenge of implementation of not only a new Practice Management system with Allscripts, but also a new EHR.”
