Our People Are Continuous Learners

We hire people who are smart, who love to learn and pick up new skills quickly, independently and with little direction. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel with each solution we develop, but we also know that an off-the-shelf wheel won’t be the perfect fit every time. So we encourage our people to actively find and pursue innovative solutions that truly solve the problem … and more.

  • I recognize that diversity of perspectives leads to better decisions.
  • I am self-aware and seek improvement, personally and professionally.
  • I watch, listen, and learn from others; thank them for their teachings; and apply the teachings to the mastery of my profession; and I do the same for others.

Our People Are Committed

Each time we work with a new client, we start by setting a deadline for implementing our platform, and we stick to it until the job is done. Sometimes this means doing more than we were contracted for—and that’s fine. Our team members are willing to do what it takes to get the job done right so that every customer succeeds.

  • I stick to the task until the job is completed.
  • I recognize that not every part of my job will be fun.
  • I make personal sacrifices, as needed, to get the work done.
  • I am willing to contribute more than my fair share to a project.
  • I have a deep, long-term commitment to healthcare improvement.
  • I lead a balanced, healthy life that enables me to sustain my pace.

Our People Are Humble

We give credit where it’s due. And often the credit for a really amazing idea goes to our clients and team members. Our company was built on humility. We appreciate praise and accolades but we never want these wins to blind us to the fact that our own success comes from everyone around us. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

  • I serve others without looking for recognition.
  • My first assumption with others is positive intent.
  • I often acknowledge others for their contributions.
  • I am secure in my own abilities (quiet self-confidence).
  • I seek to improve myself before trying to improve others.
  • I am excited when others succeed, and I offer sincere praise.
  • I empower others to do their best and give proper credit to others.
