"Impact Advisors has a strong track record of working with hospitals and healthcare organizations all over the country in delivering Epic solutions that transform care delivery and clinical results," said IBM CMIO Keith Salzman, MD. "They are a strong addition to our team as we pursue this bid in helping the Department of Defense better share, collaborate and coordinate care."
