About Us    

Healthcare Integration Strategies, LLC (HIS) was founded in 1993 to assist clients with strategic planning and implementation services for imaging integration into the healthcare enterprise information systems infrastructure.

HIS has assisted over one hundred clients with imaging strategy and implementation since its inception.  HIS was visionary with respect to the role that Speech Recognition has played toward improving the efficiency and productivity of reporting.  HIS was one of the initial organizations authorized as an IBM MedSpeak/Radiology reseller, with installations at a number of prestigious Midwest healthcare facilities. 

HIS is pioneering the expansion of image management technology beyond radiology, into cardiology, and other imaging services with differing and complex imaging requirements.  In addition, HIS is playing an active role in the emerging enterprise image management and distribution market, through consulting engagements and relationships with leading technology suppliers.
