“Providing health care is like building a house. The task requires experts, expensive equipment and materials, and a huge amount of coordination.”

Kathy has worked for medical practices as well as for IDX/GE. It is her unique combination of skills: understanding the client from having walked in their shoes to being a part of the IDX/GE implementation team and developing a deeper knowledge of the system that has given her a special perspective when working with clients. It is also this combination of skills that allowed her to develop a consulting business within GE to assist Group Management clients with the unique challenges they met each day with staff turnovers, new releases and industry changes.
A highlight of Kathy’s time with IDX/GE is the time she spent with the Group Management (aka GPMS/Group Cast) Implementation Team developing a process for implementations is still used as a model for other product lines within GE. It is even more exciting that three other members of that team are part of the KPG RCM Dream Team.
