WHAT IT DOES:
Provides information technology consulting to companies looking to implement a new IT system or improve an existing one.
HOW IT GREW:
ESD has based its success on a commitment to its employees, who the company’s website describes as a group of “clinical professionals with a range of talents and specialties.” Those professionals offer assistance in healthcare IT and staff expertise, including clinical transformation, staff augmentation and legacy systems. ESD has grown with—and beyond—the surging IT industry, with an almost 1,500% jump in revenue since 2006.
The company’s dedication to its employees has earned ESD awards for two consecutive years in Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare competition. A news release touting the most recent honor in August stated that the company “prides itself on our family-first environment, which helps foster happy and healthy employees who can then support our clients and consultants to the fullest.”
