Our Approach
Functional Consulting

 

 

Providing the link between technology, processes, and staff, our mobile team is ready to serve at a moment’s notice. Finix functional consultants work beside you, within your buildings, to make the delicate adjustments needed to the systems you already have in place.

Cross Departmental Integration

 

 

Finix’s updated solution to departmental organization ensures that your departments are working together seamlessly. We establish roles that help the supply chain support the clinical staff. By letting SCM manage supplies, clinical staff is free to focus on their primary duty, treating patients to the best of their ability.

Staff Alignment

 

 

Implementing a new process or technology can do wonders for your organization, but for things to continue running smoothly, you need your staff on board. The functional consultants at Finix understand the importance of a seamless transition and align your staff members accordingly so you can reap the full benefits of your new, fine-tuned process.
