New York City Health & Hospitals Corporation, New York, New York

Dear Dr. Bierstock,

I wanted to provide you with some feedback about our experience with your visit and your general approach to assessing HHCAdvantage, the web-based referral management system and HHC Connectx, the Community Provider Services Program, developed and implemented by New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation.

You impressed us with the sensitivity and respect you demonstrated towards our staff and physicians in community practices. Thank you for taking the time to learn so much about the application prior to your visit with us. You already had so much conceptual knowledge of the application that it allowed us to spend our time discussing the evolution of the workflow, challenges and implementation strategies. Your visits with our end-users at hospital sites and at community practices also received much positive commentary. Our physicians and managers were all impressed by your knowledge about information technology, enjoyed your interest in our system, and appreciated your understanding of operational challenges.

Finally we were also especially pleased with how quickly you were able to produce a comprehensive assessment of our application including an accurate description of its functionality, a thorough summary the end-users perspective, and a discussion of the role and opportunities offered by our program services and HHCAdvantage web-based referral management system.

The insight and experience that Champions in Healthcare brought to this engagement has provided us with invaluable feedback that is essential to our development and improvement work. It was a pleasure to work with you.

Dear Sam

I wish to thank you and your company, Champions in Healthcare, for your assistance with our recent EMR evaluation project where you reviewed several applications via product demonstrations and conference calls. You also walked me through typical physician office workflows.

I am very much impressed with your clinical knowledge and the detailed questions that you asked these vendors. I'm sure they weren't prepared to go this deeply into their system architecture; thus, I was able to learn much more about their application in a very short time.

I will certainly call on your organization for help as I begin to move into the next phases of my EMR exploration.
