NASHVILLE, TN (January 26, 2008) - Much is changing in the healthcare technology landscape and just about everyone- the public,  business leaders, patients and physicians all see that electronic medical record (EMR) solutions are the wave of the future. A Nashville, TN-based technology consulting firm specializing in technology solutions for improving patient care and lowering costs, is celebrating its fifth anniversary and is positioning itself for future growth as it has named a new partner, Tom Hogenkamp. Hogenkamp is a former executive at Ernst & Young, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young and, most recently, Electronic Data Systems. 

"2008 was a banner year for the company as we added several significant new clients and achieved national consulting industry recognition," said Cumberland CEO and Managing Partner James D. Lewis. "This month marks Cumberland's fifth anniversary and securing Hogenkamp, who is an accomplished implementation consultant and project management executive is a great addition to our leadership team." 

What was just a mere start-up firm by four former Ernst & Young executives five years ago, Cumberland has grown into a national technology implementation firm supporting what are some of the country's largest healthcare providers. The firm has consistently grown year after year and boasts a strong financial performance. Cumberland Consulting Group now has more than 50 professionals in 14 states working to help healthcare clients achieve performance improvements through new technology.

"I'm thrilled to join a small growing company and to be surrounded by people who are excited about the work they do," said Hogenkamp. "I look forward to continuing to build the organization. The healthcare industry provides Cumberland great opportunities going forward."

When implementing new technology, Cumberland professionals help clients solve some of their most challenging problems, while staying focused on strategy, organization and change.
