Partnership of Regional Healthcare IT Solution Specialists Offers Lower-Cost, Higher-Value Alternatives to Costly Services from Large Global Providers

The Trusted Healthcare Information Solutions Alliance (THISA), a nationwide consortium of IT solution providers for the healthcare industry, today announced its formal launch at the annual conference of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) in Dallas. The group’s six charter member companies will exhibit together in Booth #1113.

THISA offers an alternative to healthcare companies looking for solutions providers that can deliver the same proven expertise, value, quality, and support as large global vendors – but with the lower costs and higher service commitment typically offered by smaller, more focused partners. THISA members offer best-in-class IT systems and services that cater to healthcare organizations of any size, and help them address today’s critical HIPAA and other compliance requirements.

“Many healthcare organizations believe there are few choices when it comes to IT, and feel locked into solutions and services from big-name providers who are well-known, but tend to over-charge and under-deliver. THISA was created to offer a better alternative,” said Bert Short, President of I-Access, Inc. and charter member of THISA. “We saw a need for improvement in healthcare IT that could be accomplished by combining our expertise, methodologies, and best practices to deliver all the advantages of a large vendor, and more – without the high costs, the headaches, and the sub-par service. The end result provides healthcare clients with access to affordable, quality IT solutions that deliver on their promises – solutions the healthcare industry can trust.”

THISA is open to solutions providers, system integrators, professional services organizations, and other companies focused on the healthcare industry. THISA members meet strict requirements for trusted delivery and technical excellence, and work together to standardize solution methodologies on best practices, offer exceptional scalability and expertise, and deliver the highest level of training, attention, and support for all client accounts.

THISA members exhibiting at HIMSS include Agile360, I-Access, DBLS, DeVA Systems Group, LANStatus, and Laurus Technologies.
