04/03/2012: HCIM Transforms the Face of Consulting

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – April 3, 2012 – HealthCare Information Management, Inc. (HCIM) announced today that they are propelling consultant interviews into the 21st century by allowing clients to screen HCIM’s experienced healthcare payer professional consultants via HCIM’s exclusive virtual interview process. Using video conferencing, clients can interview potential consulting resources just as they would in a traditional face-to-face interview.

HR professionals know that the most important factors in a face-to-face interview are facial expressions and body language. These indicators are essential to assessing the candidate’s character, personality, sincerity, and compatibility with the organization. HCIM believes that hiring managers should not go in blind when interviewing consultants.

With all the technological advancements these past few years, HCIM has found video conferencing to be an amazing opportunity to restore personal interaction when an in-person interview isn’t practical or cost-efficient. HCIM’s proprietary virtual interviews are recorded and made available to the interviewer(s) for reference. Even traditional interviews lack this added bonus which allows the interviewer and other team members to review the recording throughout the decision making process. Copious note-taking during the interview makes it difficult to concentrate on asking the right questions and carrying on a real dialog. This allows the interviewer to be in the moment and to return to the recording for body language analysis.

Free iPad 3

By helping to transform the face of consulting, each client that contracts to hire an HCIM consultant through this groundbreaking virtual interview process will receive a free iPad 3. There is no limit to this special limited time offer. Please contact HCIM at services@hcim.com for additional information about the special promotion or for more details on virtual interviews.

Expect Only the Best

In 2011, HCIM began transforming the face of consulting by introducing protection from project rework with their Performance Assurance program. Now they’re changing the approach for selecting the right consultant. This innovative yet simple solution demonstrates HCIM’s commitment to providing the best advice, products, services, and support. HCIM’s consultants bring this same innovation to their projects through creative solutions and valuable toolsets. As with HCIM’s Performance Assurance program, HCIM encourages healthcare payers to expect the same level of service from any consulting firm they work with.

Responsive to Industry Conditions

HCIM is sensitive to the economic and regulatory challenges facing the healthcare payer industry and as a result is offering a lower hourly bill rate. HCIM’s competitive rates are available upon request.
