As a passionate Healthcare IT entrepreneur, a committed business executive, and an industrial engineer by profession, Drew Madden’s contribution to the field of IT Healthcare can never be underestimated. He is among the managing partners of Evergreen Healthcare Partners. For five years between 2011 and 2016, he was holding the presidency position at Nordic Consulting Partners, an Epic consulting firm based in the United States but with a global network. During that period, he led the company to an unprecedented growth both in capacity and in structure.
Drew came in when the firm’s employee population was as low as ten and left when the population had grown to over 700 staff members. Client partners, on the other hand, increased from only three to more than 150 partners. The consequence of this was that Nordic had its annual revenue rise from a million dollars in 2010 to 130 million dollars in 2016. All these were made possible by his ability to mobilize his staff towards a common goal, his unmatched team leadership skills, his unique style of cultivating a positive company culture, and his emphasis to high-level of customer relations standards.
Drew Madden’s record at the helm of Nordic Consulting Partners speaks for itself. With the growth described there above, the firm attracted admiration from across the board and won a handful of prestigious awards. Among the many awards that the firm bagged was the KLAS awards– these awards recognize excellence in consultancy services. The firm also ranked top twice within a space of three years regarding Epic implementation services. With such achievements being realized during Drew’s tenure, he set the bar too high for his successors; they will have to do much to fit in his big shoes.
By his own admission, Drew Madden’s main passion is to address the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) records regarding troubleshooting the different challenges associated with it. After leaving Nordic Consulting Partners and establishing Evergreen Healthcare Partners, Drew Madden has been keen on pushing for that passion. Prior to his job at Nordic, he worked as a senior epic consultant for Healthia Consulting/Ingenix Consulting.
