Jeff Markiewicz, Managing Member
Quickly rising to the status of one of the most respected providers of consulting services in the healthcare community, Jeff Markiewicz & Associates plays a vital role in expediting ceaseless activities through its healthcare and technical consulting services. The firm’s expertise spans across a broad spectrum from project management to sophisticated medical equipment integration, process evaluation to interface design and support, executive consulting to data and systems conversions, infrastructure design and support to systems analysis. “We ensure that the right solution is provided to make a project successful—whether it involves installing Epic, Cerner, or any other electronic medical record (EMR), we have the experience and a proven track record that allows us to be successful with any organization,” states Jeff Markiewicz, Managing Member, Jeff Markiewicz & Associates.
From small medical facilities in Central Kansas to major medical centers around the world, the firm provides professional consulting and technical services to a range of clients. EMR implementation, optimization, revenue enhancements, process improvements, oncology EMRs, are some of the areas where they have been hugely successful.
With any project, the firm first sets up a structure for the client and builds comprehensive project plans allowing the client to track the progress of their project. “We specialize in EMR systems implementations,” says Jeff. Many customers that are installing or optimizing EMRs such as Epic, Cerner, Athena, ProVation, Varian, Sysmex, have reaped the success of these implementations. Apart from the set of unique tools provided to design and document processes, the firm utilizes custom project websites and develops applications for its customers to ensure all the components of the project are in place. “We bring in the right people, resources, and technology together to make a fine piece of work for organizations,” says Jeff. Recently Jeff Markiewicz & Associates led a $200 million Epic implementation for a hospital system in Tennessee.
We have been in the business for over 32 years and specialize in electronic medical record (emr) systems implementations and optimization, consistently delivering on time and under budget solutions
“Clients keep coming back for help on EMR projects, complex data conversions, or building specialized databases,” says Jeff. The strength of the organization is its ability to bring diverse groups together, integrate complex systems, and deliver projects on time and under budget. “For over 32 years, we have never missed a deadline. Using our unique tools and resources, we can manage timelines, costs, and mitigate risks,” says Jeff.
The firm’s tools, technology, and practical approach give Jeff Markiewicz & Associates, the edge over other firms in the arena. Another factor for the company’s success is the management’s firm belief of measuring the firm’s quality instead of growth. “When a customer engages with Jeff Markiewicz & Associates, they connect with every person in the organization,” smiles Jeff.
One of the firm’s regular clients has been Michelle Mahan, Senior VP for Finance with Frederick Regional Health System. When the client was in a difficult situation with its revenue recovery cycle for its recent project—optimization and installation of Meditech 6.1—Michelle Mahan informs that Jeff brought together seasoned professionals to manage the workflow and bring about improvements. “Through the solutions provided by Jeff and his team, Frederick Regional Health System was able to bring down accounts receivable outstanding for 71 days to 51 days, in a matter of four months through cash collections. Bringing a growth of 20 days proved to be of great value to our hospital.”
With a 98 percent Return Customer Rate in its projects, the real asset of the firm lies in its relationship with its customers. The firm is also continually looking to better itself with innovative and technical services. “We are looking to maintaining a steady state by not doubling the size of our company by managing the quality of delivery,” concludes Jeff.
