Us… But Better! 15 years, New Look, Same Foundation.March 1, 2019
The year was 2004: Facebook was a new social networking site for college students, Britney Spears was topping the pop charts, and President Bush signed an executive order to establish a 10-year Health Information Technology Plan to develop and implement electronic medical record systems across America.
….. Feeling old yet? Yes, that was 15 years ago.
2004 was also the year that our founders, Chad Perce and Clint Drawdy, decided to start their own company in the recruiting industry that would be held to a higher standard. They envisioned a place where people could fulfill their faith in the marketplace and create meaningful work day in and day out. While our company evolved with the needs of the marketplace, our foundation never wavered. Our foundation of our core values, treating people with respect, and just being good humans in a transactional world.
So, consider this our State of the Union… we have some big news. iMethods is celebrating our 15-year anniversary and launching our new brand!
If you’ve known us over the past 15 years, the first thing you may notice is that the sea of blue is now a bold, energizing orange. Our logo has come into the 21st century and slimmed down a bit. While we hope you embrace our new look, a rebrand isn’t just about the psychology of colors, pretty patterns, and a new (rocking) website. We are stepping into a new time in healthcare where innovation and patient care is at a tipping point, and we want to be your vehicle to help drive the change for good.
In a post-EMR world that is ever striving for value we are facing opportunities around big data, population health, telehealth, security, precision medicine, quality and consumer engagement. iMethods is partnering with our hospital clients, industry leading vendors and bringing our own solutions to tackle these opportunities. It takes all of us working together being focused and aligned to make meaningful change! Please be on the lookout this year for more details on all the new things we are developing to help each of you and your institutions deliver meaningful work and better outcomes!
- Our mission:To create interpersonal connections between the needs of hospitals and the skills of healthcare IT experts, in order to deliver transformational outcomes for our clients and their patients.
- Our vision:A world where healthcare technology is powered by human connections, ultimately creating healthier people and healthier communities.
- Our method: bringing together individuals with a need and individuals that perfectly fulfill that need. And we do it in a way that’s rare in this industry; we treat others how we would want to be treated. We ask ourselves, “If ‘I’ were the client, who would ‘I’ hire?” and “If ‘I’ were the candidate, where would ‘I’ want to work?” This is our inter-personal approach.
As we reflect on our anniversary, we want to thank our customers and consultants who have worked with us over the past 15 years. As we look to the future, we look forward to continuing to build long-lasting relationships that will result in better outcomes for all.
