Simple and based on a single principle – our customers’ success is a direct measure of our own. To measure success we use three metrics: timeline, budget and end-user adoption. Other healthcare consulting organizations may agree on this, but the difference with Sagacious Consultants is we have the software expertise and experience to make it happen.
We recruit only the best consultants and embody a healthy work/life balance, boasting one of the highest retention rates in the industry! In turn, our customers receive uncompromised results. Our employees provide in depth knowledge of Epic software, project management skills to keep a project on time and on budget and the experience necessary to mesh industry best practices with the organization’s needs.
Sagacious Consultants understands that success brings social responsibility. We pride ourselves by delivering like no other healthcare consulting firm by providing a significant portion of profits to our employees’ and customers’ local charities.
Sagacious Consultants is an innovative consulting firm dedicated to making healthcare better from patient to provider.
Sagacious accomplishes this by providing the top echelon of Epic consultants to our partners, ranging from large academic healthcare organizations to local community clinics. Our mission to our employees is to treat each one as an individual, with the utmost respect, and to provide them with a culture that promotes personal and professional happiness, growth and diversity, and which rewards achievements.
Our mission to our clients is to engage with them as partners, and to provide superior results by leveraging our consultants’ technical expertise in conjunction with our intimate knowledge of the healthcare space. With a strong focus on collaboration, both internally and with our clients, Sagacious Consultants guarantees to surpass expectations.
Sagacious Consultants will continue to grow in prominence and expertise with a focus on sustainability.
We will remain committed to our core values by only employing the best and brightest employees, fostering an inclusive, yet elite corporate culture, and providing superior consultants and customer service to our clients.
Since our inception in 2009, Sagacious Consultants has been wholeheartedly committed to supporting the community, both near and far. It is because of this commitment that we donate a significant amount of money to nonprofit, charitable organizations which have a direct impact on the communities of our clients and our employees. These organizations support diverse causes such as medical research, support for animals, women’s rights and healthcare, early childhood education, support services for veterans, as well as many other causes.
A new benefit introduced to all employees in 2012 allows each employee to choose a charitable organization for Sagacious to make a donation to on their behalf. As Sagacious has continued to grow, this has allowed the amount of contributions, as well as the organizations benefiting from these contributions, to grow substantially over time. Please see the graphic to the right for Sagacious’ annual contributions since inception.
