Strategic Interest’s methodology, experience and diligence yielded an insightful report that helped NYeC understand the current state of image exchange in New York and around the nation. Their thorough analysis including well-developed use cases, deep analysis of the vendor market and recommendations helped form a strategy to help New York State’s RHIOs and other stakeholders attain business and clinical objectives through Image Exchange.Elise Kohl-Grant
Each of our young companies has unique capabilities and needs. Working with SI during the past 8 years, I am keenly aware of the depth and breadth of experience that Al’s team possesses to properly support our member companies on the road to commercial success—they are in good hands with SI.
SI has helped Flagler Hospital and the First Coast Health Alliance develop and deploy a private health information exchange (HIE) for the ACO. SI performed an assessment and prioritization of community-based physician practices and identified process changes required to ensure high quality of data within the HIE. SI is currently managing analysis, design, and clinical deployment to the practices, and helping communication and change management. SI’s support has been instrumental in helping Flagler, FCHA, and the HIE vendor (dbMotion/Allscripts) to identify and resolve issues in a timely fashion.

While the U.S. healthcare market is attractive to Israeli start-ups, it’s difficult to avoid costly missteps while navigating the complex environment. A partner such as SI can leverage experience and long-standing relationships to help Israeli health tech companies succeed here in the U.S. Al and I share the same desire to help accelerate one of Israel’s most precious exports and it’s exciting to see how he is bringing this to fruition.
