VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Divurgent and Gevity, two leading healthcare IT consulting firms, announced that they have formalized a strategic business alliance to mutually benefit their clients by expanding their services across the United States and Canada. Divurgent and Gevity both offer strengths in healthcare information system design, implementation, and optimization and bring to this partnership proven methodologies and innovative practices.
"This alignment is a natural evolution for our firms who have worked together over the past year on a number of initiatives. Gevity's mission and core values align perfectly with Divurgent's, and our mutual commitment to improving healthcare and dedication to client satisfaction offers our clients a winning proposition when partnering with us on their healthcare systems initiatives," said Colin Konschak, Divurgent CEO.
The partnership offers Gevity's Canadian and American customers a more robust implementation practice, powered by Divurgent's proven methodologies and past performance in EPIC and Cerner implementation services, and expanded capabilities in enterprise resource planning and healthcare cyber-security.
Likewise, Divurgent's customers can anticipate improved capabilities and offerings in public health, clinical informatics, and technical expertise across a greater breadth of applications. "Our service offerings are expanded tenfold with this alliance," said Shane Danaher, Divurgent COO, "and there is exponential value with the combined breadth of our services, meaning that our portfolio of experience and expertise can reach almost every clinical, financial, and operational need that a healthcare organization may encounter."
"Our two companies' combined experience and resources will deliver a significant advantage to both existing and future clients," said Leon Salvail, Gevity CEO. "I truly believe that our individual strengths perfectly augment each other's and that our clients will be the ones to benefit the most from this alliance. Divurgent and Gevity offer a combined 36 years of serving the healthcare industry. The lessons learned and innovative solutions implemented by both firms will ensure all our clients realize maximum value from their health information technology investments."
Divurgent's recent awards and recognitions include being named to Inc. Magazine's List of Fastest Growing Firms for a sixth consecutive year, to Modern Healthcare Magazine's List of Best Places to Work in Healthcare for a sixth year, and to Consulting Magazine's List of Fastest Growing Firms. Additionally, the firm has recently been rated by KLAS, an independent research company, as a top-ten firm in the Health Information Technology Implementation Support & Staffing Category.
Gevity's accolades include consecutive recognition awards from Healthcare Information Management & Communications Canada for outstanding commitment to the health informatics industry. In 2016, Branham Management Group Inc. recognized Gevity as one of Canada's top information technology companies and Mediacorp Canada Inc. selected the company as one of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers. More recently, Digital Health Canada included two Gevity managing partners on its list of the top 10 Women Leaders in Digital Health in 2018.
