About the Customer

USA Health’s mission is to help people lead longer, better lives through its excellence in education, research, and medical care. As an academic medical center, USA Health provides advanced and innovative patient care through its University hospitals and clinics, as well as first-class training experiences for the next generation of physicians and scientists.

Scope and Challenges

USA Health kicked off what was expected to be a nine-month EMR Conversion to Cerner Millennium. Termed the Unity project, the endeavor involved transitioning from five different electronic medical record systems and three different revenue cycle systems into one clinically driven revenue cycle coordinated system that touches every part of USA Health. After 30 months and four Go Live date changes, USA Health made the decision to take a different approach. The health system executive team began an executive level search to find a partner with a proven track record that would confidently and successfully take the Unity project live.

Outcome and Implications

By selecting Avelead Cerner Millennium, company benefits are:

  • - On-time Cerner Millennium Go Live on 10/1/2017 (6-month recovery)
  • - Improved revenue cycle/billing visibility
  • - The planned reduction in contractor staffing
  • - Cerner relationship intact and enhanced for future support/relationships
  • - The solid foundation in place for future IS planning
  • - Physician participation in stabilization and optimization


“The Avelead team has provided outstanding leadership and direction during this most challenging and complex process. They consistently operate with a high degree of integrity, and a focus on results and excellence at every stage. We are so thankful to have them as a trusted and dedicated partner.”-said Owen Bailey, CEO & SR Assoc VP Medical Affairs at USA Health
