Acumen will provide a CRM/project management solution from Salesforce.com.
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has selected Acumen Solutions to supply a cloud-based CRM solution.
"Acumen will roll out a CRM/project management solution from Salesforce.com," writes MSPmentor's John Moore. "Acumen, a Salesforce.com consulting partner, also pursues cloud projects with Google Enterprise and SpringCM, among other cloud platforms."
"In Acumen's HHS deal, the speed of cloud deployment was key," Moore writes. "The department is funding a network of regional extension centers that will help healthcare providers deploy electronic health record (EHR) systems. Providers who demonstrate 'meaningful use' of EHRs will receive financial incentives. The dollars become available next year, so the extension centers need to get operational fairly soon to help out the doctors."
"We are pleased to support ONC as they embark upon this critical project to improve our nation's Health IT infrastructure," says Acumen managing director Marty Young. "By choosing a cloud computing platform ONC is leading the way in innovation. We are proud to have been chosen for our demonstrated ability to help Federal Agencies weave cloud computing strategies into their enterprise architecture and as well as our strong background in the healthcare industry."
