About

As a systems integrator for healthcare, we at Hielix work within healthcare, specifically with physicians, hospitals, and state governments to efficiently adopt healthcare IT and empower the seamless exchange of healthcare data. By combining innovative healthcare products with operational and clinical professional services competencies we are empowering our national reseller footprint to capture new customers. These customers exist in physician, hospital, and state government markets and generate higher margin sales and empower the proliferation of electronic data in healthcare.

Our unique core competencies reside in balancing the technical needs of the project and the healthcare realities in which those products and services need to operate. Healthcare IT projects and solutions that address such operational considerations can be deployed more rapidly, at lower cost, and with enhanced strategic outcomes for both the vendor and customer.

Hielix’s current channel footprint includes:

  • Over 120 reseller partners nationally
  • Partner coverage in more than 30 US states
  • Established partners in 20 of the top 30 DMA markets
  • Over $7b in technology revenue power from the Hielix footprint

In addition to our healthcare channel network, Hielix maintains a leadership position in the development and deployment of health information exchanges (HIE). Our team has participated in the planning/development of one out of every 5 (ONC-funded) state HIE projects. Hielix is the industry leader in strategic and operational planning, financial sustainability, provider adoption, and alignment for exchanging healthcare data.
