ORS is comprised of over 70 talent acquisition experts that become the outsourced, ‘in-house’ recruitment consultants and brand ambassadors for their clients. Over 140 organizations have trusted ORS to carry their business card and act as an extension of their team to deploy best practices in attracting and hiring talent.

In five years, ORS has helped ten clients successfully grow and scale their teams in preparation for liquidity events including: Whiptail acquired by Cisco in September 2013; Pet360 acquired by PetSmart in September 2014; iLEVEL acquired by Ipreo in June 2015; iPipeline acquired by Thoma Bravo in August 2015; Centrak acquired by Halma February 2016; IntegriChain acquired by Accel-KKR in March 2016; Operative acquired by SintecMedia in November 2016; MacroPoint acquired by Descartes in August 2017; Frontline Education acquired by Thoma Bravo in August 2017.

Trevose, PA, August 16, 2017 – Data Systems Analysts, Inc.

A mere half a percent has made the list nine times”.

These values sustain and enhance our success in a dynamic business environment”.

The 2017 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2013 to 2016. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2013. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent-not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies-as of December 31, 2016.

The CEO at Exit: Prepare; Talk; Listen; Empathize

Being the CEO and running your business during “normal days” is full of challenges whether you are growing fast, slow, or not at all.  When the opportunity arises, either by luck or happenstance or by your own decision and initiative, to go down the path of exiting (selling) your business, a very different array of challenges emerges for you.  Because now you are entering a process for which you were never trained, and if you are lucky, perhaps you experienced this once, maybe twice, but likely never at all.  There is not a single CEO I have worked with or spoken to about the exit process who has not defined it as anything but the complex, confusing and convoluted process that it is.  So if this is the feeling of the CEO about the exit process, you can easily imagine the emotional and physical state of every member of the CEO’s team as they live through this too.  Then what do you need to do to lead your team to perform, cope with, and survive the process to not only the closing but through life thereafter?

The Connected Health Cloud: From Concept to Catalyst

Recently, a local organization and PACT member,  CloudMine, was cited as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Health Clouds, Q3 2017. The report was released on July 26, 2017 by Forrester Research, Inc., a leading global research and advisory firm, to help healthcare CIOs objectively evaluate enterprise health clouds.

Vendors were evaluated on 37 criteria, grouped into current offering, market presence, and strategy. Ten vendors were evaluated, each one providing: easy integration with major EHR providers; the ability for enterprises to develop a 360-degree view of their patients; advanced analytics capabilities, including patient analytics; SDK and API inclusion; data governance and access management; and HIPAA compliance in handling PHI. CloudMine was one of five vendors cited as a leader.

The vision of digital transformation of healthcare is expressed through many innovations, including major initiatives telemedicine, IoT/wearables integration, mobile-enabled clinical trials, and integrated disease management. With the emergence of policy mandates such as the 21st Century Act and MACRA, the motivation to accelerate this transformation is increasing. However, a significant gap exists in this evolution: a lack of interoperability poses a major barrier to achieving connected health. CloudMine, a venture-backed health cloud platform provider, is leading the way to a more agile, better connected healthcare experience.

Michener Art Museum’s Charles Sheeler exhibition website, Charlessheeler.org.
