Client Testimonials

I absolutely agree that Shalin is adding value.  His participation on some of the design calls for Acute has been very welcomed by the team and the one report that he has helped us with so far has been tremendously valuable in defining and aggregating one particular segment of our DNFB that was previously unable to be truly quantified.  He’s developed a very good rapport with Deloitte and our Cerner Solution Consultants, and I feel like our Information Systems team would echo many of my positive comments.  We are all thankful to have someone with fundamental knowledge of our system being available (and responsive!) to us that is an informed third-party.

Vice President of Revenue Cycle , Integrated Delivery System

I love my job and I love Round Table for being probably the best organization I have worked with.  That sounds so sappy but none the less its true. Thank you for making me feel like I matter.
