As more and more data from patients and consumers is stored within electronic medical records systems, the chances of personal information being breached by hackers grows increasingly likely each day. With the multitude of electronic medical records systems relying on software from the 1980s and 1990s, it’s clear something needs to be done. And as consumers and patients learn of a merger between CVS and Aetna, along with the impending pharmaceutical licensing of Amazon in many states across the nation, there are even more concerns about just how safe the growing amounts of data will be in the coming years. To deal with these potential problems, many healthcare facilities and corporations are turning to experts in healthcare IT, such as Drew Madden of Nordic Consulting Partners.
Since the majority of today’s electronic medical records systems are running on outdated software, Drew Madden spends much of his time developing new and innovative software to install in these systems. Relying on the skills he learned as an industrial engineer, Drew uses these talents to carefully analyze each system to determine the type of software needed to make the systems efficient and secure. To accomplish this, Drew combines new software with the latest aspects of cloud technology, advanced data network analysis, and cyber security to create customized systems for each client. With more than two decades of experience working with these systems, Drew has developed a reputation throughout the healthcare industry for his ability to find solutions to the most difficult of problems.
Due to the many successes over the past two decades, Drew Madden’s company Nordic Consulting Partners has become the leading healthcare IT company worldwide. Having started with only three employees more than a decade ago, NCP now has more than 725 of the healthcare industry’s best IT professionals on its staff. In addition to this impressive number, NCP also works with well over 200 clients around the world, ranging from large healthcare complexes to Fortune 500 corporations. And as the company has grown, its annual revenues have also increased, from slightly over $1 million to now more than $130 million.
