Survey some folks after they leave Epic, and they’ll likely agree that the thing they miss most is the people. And why not? Those people are smart, interesting, driven, and creative, and the bonds formed through solving complex problems and working long hours can last a lifetime.

We’ve been working in the post-Epic consulting world long enough to know that to harness the strengths of ex-Epic folks, it isn’t enough just to fill up your ranks and wait for magic to happen. The most powerful alchemy to fully engage a group of seasoned health tech pros is the opportunity to tackle something big, interesting, and difficult. Something that requires the same kind of foundation of trust that built the strongest bonds in the Epic years. Something all healthcare organizations are struggling with right now. Something like the challenges we tackle every day at Prominence.

At Prominence, we recognize that there are not many seasoned experts in healthcare analytics or in healthcare strategic services, because the problems we solve are at the forefront of the intersection of healthcare and technology. In working with some of the most innovative, early-adopter healthcare organizations, we have the privilege of guiding them through the uncharted territory of their top-of-mind quandaries.

Because these environments are so perfectly matched to someone who has weathered a career at Epic, we’ve developed comprehensive training and mentoring programs for our new hires. We’ve designed these to groom the next generation of healthcare technology experts, building upon the rich understanding of healthcare systems and complex project management held by the folks we loved working with at Epic. Not only do we expect our incoming staff to master (and love) the new hats they will wear as they join one of our nodes of business, we expect that they will want to flex their expertise into the other nodes of business, as well. This translates into a more robust experience for our customers and continuous learning for our amazing team, enabling the alchemy that makes the promise of a new challenge the reason we rise every morning.
