MG Select’s Implementation and Migration Services Align with the Converge Platform for Patient Safety, Credentialing, and Accreditation
Verge Health, the industry’s leading risk management software provider for hospitals and health systems, and MG Select, a healthcare IT professional services firm, have forged an exclusive partnership to help transition prospective Verge customers to their patient safety, credentialing and accreditation platform.
“MG Select has a deep understanding of the needs of the healthcare IT market, and a thorough knowledge of Midas, which is pivotal to support our client’s complete migrations to the Converge platform for high-reliability organizations,” says Mark Crockett, MD, chief executive officer for Verge Health. “
MG Select’s core offerings include implementation, training and project management services that assist hospitals and healthcare organizations to optimize their existing solutions. MG Select’s co-founders are Karen LaRue and Erick Holliday. Karen LaRue was former vice president of operations for Conduent’s (formerly Xerox Health) Midas group and a 27-year industry veteran. Erick Holliday was the strategic account executive assisting Conduent’s Midas group with customer relationships, client retention, revenue growth, strategic partnerships and business development focus areas and a 20-year industry veteran.
Verge will leverage MG Select’s extensive knowledge and expertise with the recent announcement regarding the sunsetting of the Midas credentialing solution to help Midas clients implement the Verge Credentialing application and migrate to the Converge platform. MG Select will also help long-time Midas customers transition from legacy systems to the Converge Platform so that they can leverage best-in-class security, workflow automation, and mobile rounding.
“In today’s market, it’s important to have a stable, cloud-based enterprise solution that allows health systems to deploy on a comprehensive platform,” says LaRue. “We found that the Converge platform aligns with our philosophy of working with companies that have a validated and verified solution in the market by organizations such as KLAS and Black Book™ Research. In addition, their culture of integrity, honesty, and transparency aligns with our core values.”
The organizations kicked off the partnership in August and will leverage MG Select for implementation support for software transition efforts.
“Our clients look to us to reduce the time frame involved in migrating from a sunsetting solution to an industry-validated platform developed through a customer-driven process. With a platform approach, they move toward achieving high reliability and empowering the C-suite with access to the data they need to create and maintain a culture of safety,” says Crockett. “We are grateful to add MG Select’s expertise to our implementation and migration services.”
