Linking Strategic and Tactical Thinking
Challenge: A $1.6B health system struggles with new technology and process, suffers service difficulties due to infrastructure it shares with its namesake university.

The Monetization of IT
Challenge: In the midst of a $21M infrastructure facelift, one of New England’s largest healthcare institutions looks for a way to monetize its IT investment.
Solution: An innovative joint venture with VertitechIT create opportunities to offer managed services and secure datacenter hosting to orbiting independent healthcare practices, generating an initial $200,000 in annual outside income available to fund other strategic initiatives.
Approach: The average non-profit hospital operating margin is just 2.6 percent so the ability to generate revenue without impacting IT service levels is invaluable. VertitechIT reduces operational expenses to fund innovation, enabling the CIO, IT staff, and other functional areas to become an internal and external service broker.
