“Working with Mass Ingenuity has been one of the most productive consulting partnerships of my career. The outcomes HCA has achieved as a result of its work with Mass Ingenuity’s Results Management System have been sustainable, and this is due in large part to the exceptionally high quality of the Mass Ingenuity consultants our team worked with to build a performance-based culture. I wasn’t sure we could transform the bureaucratic culture to one that needed to be more adaptive, but we did. The Fundamentals Map enabled us to set out agency wide goals, to measure progress and to demonstrate that the operational retooling of the agency to carry out its mission worked. This work also assisted us in being awarded and carrying out a $65 million Healthier Washington Innovation grant from CMMI and supported the successful negotiation of a $1 billion 1115 Medicaid waiver. Working with Mass Ingenuity is contagious.”Dorothy Teeter, Washington Health Care Authority Director
A quick snapshot of

“For perspective, it is important to remember that The Joint Commission surveys both public and private hospitals all across the country, even in other countries. So when we hear such praise from them, we should realize how well our performance compares to thousands of other facilities. Praise from The Joint Commission is high praise indeed! To me, the best part of this is that the surveyors were so impressed after seeing the hospital as it really is. Because the survey team arrives unannounced, we can only do things the way we normally do; there’s no ‘putting on a show.’ Being ‘survey ready every day’ has become a reality here…”Greg Roberts, Oregon State Hospital Superintendent

“The Results Management System was a perfect fit for what TSD needed. After years of disconnection and disengagement, employees were emphatically asking for a new culture where transparency, openness, and the ability for them to directly impact the direction of their organization were ingrained in the DNA of their division. The Results Management System provided the vehicle to change the culture and the employees stepped up. The transformation was dramatic. As a leader, seeing the impact this has had on the division and its employees is nothing short of magical.”Chris Lamb, Director, Technology Solutions Division Washington State Dept. of Social Services
