Epic consultancy Bluetree Network expands

Bluetree Network, a Madison, Wis.-based Epic consulting firm, is reaping the benefits of Epic's massive healthcare presence, the Wisconsin State Journal reports.

The company, which supports and mentors healthcare organizations using Epic's EHR, is moving to a larger office to fit its growing staff.

Here are eight things to know about the consultancy, as noted by the Wisconsin State Journal:

1. Bluetree, which was founded in 2012 in a small co-working space, is moving to an office with more than 15,000 square feet.

7. Bluetree expects $55 million in revenue this year.

8. In 2017, Bluetree ranked No. 569 on the Inc. 5000 list, Inc.'s annual ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. based on annual revenue and three-year growth.
