Jackson Health IT

Jackson Health IT was launched in April of 2016. We were created from the merger of two companies: Parker Healthcare IT and Health IT Project Managers. With a combined 15 years of Healthcare IT experience, we were like two sides of the same coin. Parker provided EHR implementation support, and HPM focused on EHR Leadership. Our parent company, Jackson Healthcare, realized there was natural synergy in both our culture and service offerings, and suggested we work together.

So many of us had come from environments where relationships were transactional, and we realized how important it was to focus on culture. We built our brand around creating meaningful relationships with like-minded partners. This translates to our mission, vision, values and delivery model, because we put just as much emphasis on skills as we do on culture fit. We firmly believe in transparency, which means we may not always be the solution, but either way we commit to building a relationship that will add value.

Maxwell IT

Practices and hospital outpatient clinics are dependent upon EHR software, and complex server environments to work efficiently, without interruption. Their templates, servers, and staff training must stay up-to-date. Ongoing vendor application and support issues must be resolved quickly with minimal impact to the administrator’s daily routine.

In many cases practices lack some or all of the following combination of skill sets to maintain their EHR/EPM system: IT system engineer, EHR/EPM trainer, technical and clinical project manager, and billing/coding specialist. That’s where we come in.

Maxwell IT provides the right mix of consulting and IT engineering support to practices at an affordable price. We are a cost effective alternative to hiring and maintaining a full-time staff of specialists. Our team of experienced and knowledgeable consultants, trainers, project managers and IT engineers can quickly turnaround technology inefficiencies in the practice. We lower your operation costs and increase your EHR/EPM investment results.

Networks Rx was created to address the rapidly increasing demand for information technology systems in the healthcare industry.

In addition, he directed the Windows NT security evaluation and holds two software development patents. Ken is rated as a Vendor Security Analyst with the National Security Agency and is a Certified HIPAA Professional.
