Company Partners with Local Colleges to Identify Talent and Create a Workforce Capable of Meeting Unprecedented Industry Challenges
DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Anthelio, the leading independent provider of comprehensive healthcare information technology (“IT”) services and business process solutions for hospitals and other healthcare providers, today announced its plans to open a 50,000 square foot Center of Excellence (CoE) facility, located between Detroit and Flint, Michigan.
As part of its plans to open a CoE, Anthelio also announced it is working with leading community colleges, across the state. The program is aimed at preparing health care and IT workers that are looking to enter the healthcare field by providing them the resources they need to apply what they’ve learned in school and begin a productive career in the healthcare industry.
The CoE will be a critical tool to help Anthelio meet its growth and expansion strategy by creating a system to identify high-quality talent and provide them with the tools, technology and training they need to make a measureable impact on the healthcare industry. Anthelio will integrate with its Eco-system of partners, such as its recent announcement with MedQuist Inc. incorporating Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) technology along with world class process methodologies to create the highest value, lowest cost solutions to this complex issue facing many healthcare providers.
The CoE will become a means of leveraging the experience and skills of seasoned industry executives and will create a truly unique platform to discuss and reevaluate the fundamental processes and best practices we use today, and consider how they need to change over time.
“We are extremely excited to create a center of excellence in the local Detroit area, and delighted to be working with the local colleges to begin identifying and grooming the exceptional talent we will need to transform the healthcare industry in response to such difficult and widespread challenges,” said Richard S. Garnick, Chairman & CEO of Anthelio. “It is our aspiration that this will be an important piece of our business evolution, as we scale up with the best and brightest minds in our industry to tackle widespread problems such as the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10, as well as so many other technology and process issues that hospitals face.”
The CoE is yet another significant investment Anthelio has made in creating opportunities for professionals in healthcare.
“It is important for us to provide new workforce opportunities with programs like the CoE as well as the college hire program we have for sales professionals. At the same time, it is imperative that we strengthen the skills and knowledge of our current team,” added Mr. Garnick. “In an era where companies are making fewer investments in their people, we started a tuition re-imbursement program. Great waves of change are washing over healthcare and transforming the jobs that our people do as they roll up their sleeves and serve hospitals and other healthcare providers – our clients. We made sacrifices this past year in marketing, in operations, and in other areas, to spend over a million dollars on training programs and tools so that our people can nimbly adapt to the flood of change. I view this as an investment in each employee’s stature in the marketplace.”
