A Letter to Wally Pruitt, Implementations Director at Epiphany Healthcare from Mitch Ainsworth, PACS/Radiology Systems Administrator at Delta Regional Medical Center in Greenville, MS
Now that we are a couple of weeks into our go-live, I feel like I can take a moment to catch my breath and put my thoughts on paper about our implementation experience. Epiphany was tasked with implementing Cardio Server in a very short time frame. We communicated our aggressive time-line requirements; the Epiphany team heard our needs and was able to implement Cardio Server to meet them.
The team you assembled for this project was the best I have ever worked with. Bob Sturgill was instrumental in keeping the Epiphany team, as well as the DRMC team, on task to meet this deadline. Bob went above and beyond by scheduling time with just he and I to ensure certain milestones were met on time. Bob leaned on his contacts from Mortara to aid in integrating the stress and Holter systems with Cardio Server. Victor Villafaña worked tirelessly with our interface architect to ensure stable HL7 integration with Meditech. Victor also accommodated several changes just prior to go-live and a few optimizations after go-live. The trainer was exceptional as well. Tammy was well prepared to ensure we did not skip a beat while transitioning from Cerner Powerchart ECG to Cardio Server. During a very stressful time for our organization, Tammy kept both the ECG techs and physicians calm and focused while learning the new system.
The professionalism and work ethic of all involved from Epiphany should be commended. I never once felt that we were just another number on a sales sheet.
Your staff made the DRMC team feel as though we were part of a bigger team. The entire team was focused on effectively implementing a system that would aid in how we care for our patients as an organization. The Epiphany staff seemed as vested in this endeavor as we were. I have been involved in several other implementations that did not go so well. Other vendors we have worked with put their best people in sales. After the sale, the customer experience was terrible. From conversations with other colleagues, this seems to be the norm these days. Epiphany deserves to be applauded on this project. From sales to post-live support, it has been a wonderful experience. I feel sure there are a few people that I failed to mention but I appreciate their work on this project too.
It is not often that the customer is treated as well as we were by Epiphany and you deserve to be praised for it. We are very satisfied with the quality of the system and how smoothly the system was implemented.
Thank you and your entire team at Epiphany for the hard work and dedication during this project.
Kudos to Epiphany!
