CHG Healthcare turned to Rimini Street to not only get the expert and highly responsive support they required to keep their mission-critical system working effectively, but also to provide strategic advisory around its future technology and systems roadmap.
The partnership with Rimini Street has enabled CHG Healthcare’s internal teams to address system issues faster and more efficiently, improving the overall experience for both its employees and customers. With Rimini Street Support, CHG Healthcare’s IT department is now able to ensure better system availability and smoother operation and focus its resources on achieving its business objective of enabling communities and providers to deliver the best patient outcomes.
CHG Healthcare is leading the industry by leveraging innovative technologies to streamline processes and improve user experiences along the entire healthcare staffing continuum. Rimini Street helps CHG Healthcare with seamless support of provider and client systems to ensure no downtime and no issues with patient billing or provider payments. These mission-critical systems must be available continuously and operate smoothly to ensure patients have access to necessary care.
