Health Information Technology

Briljent offers a range of services to help in funding, planning, and implementing Health Information Technology (HIT) and Health Information Exchange (HIE) initiatives. Our team brings best-in-class experience and is actively engaged with leading states and HIE initiatives nationally. We are uniquely qualified to provide consulting and guidance to these organizations, with a deep understanding of the underlying policies, challenges, opportunities and imperatives that drive these initiatives at the national, state and organizational levels. We understand the opportunities for advancement, the current best practices, and how to mitigate the challenges of a complex, interoperable HIT/HIE ecosystem.



Briljent can assess an HIT/HIE’s environment and the current state of the organization, including its vision, its efficiency and effectiveness, its staff, its technology, its relationships with partners and stakeholders, its progress in achieving goals, and other aspects that affect success.


Briljent has deep experience helping turn assessment results into an effective business case for seeking funding. Our team brings best-in-class experience and is actively engaged with leading states and HIE organizations nationally. We have assisted many organizations in understanding and applying the necessary criteria, meeting requirements, and completing the necessary documentation to fund and support their Health Information initiatives.


As organizations put their strategic plans into action, Briljent can support them in a number of ways, including communications and outreach, stakeholder engagement, onboarding, organizational change management, staffing, training, technical consulting, data governance, and sustainability.

Initiative Adoption

Our HIT technical consultants have vast experience conducting environmental scans across providers and hospitals to assist states with adoption and use of EHR, HIE, and HIT functionality and initiatives. Results of provider and hospital surveys plus review of state HIT artifacts provide the foundation to develop To-Be landscape and update SMHP documents for CMS.

The Application

Strategies for Modernizing Health Care Systems

Briljent has a long history of working with states as they work to modernize health care systems and programs. Our understanding of this space was significantly enhanced when we put together a team designed to focus specifically on helping states evaluate current conditions, develop strategies, secure funding, and plan implementation to adopt new and improved healthcare technologies.

Briljent’s lead HIT consultant, Nick Blake, came to our team from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), where he was a national leader of Federal Health IT programs. In addition to authoring Federal regulations, Nick also managed the EHR Incentive Program for 17 States and was the CMS lead for the Eligibility and Enrollment Program for the State of California. Prior to CMS, Nick worked for the State of Florida at the Agency for Health Care Administration.

Under Nick’s guidance, our team has analyzed and developed strategies for HIT initiatives across several states and helped secure millions of dollars in funding. Our team understands the challenges states face and the importance of driving HIT initiatives forward, and we apply an approach based on experience, expertise and tools that completely change the way states think and collaborate. Our goal is to ensure that HIT programs are developed strategically in alignment with each state’s goals, funding opportunities are maximized to the fullest potential and federal review and approval is expedited.

What people are saying

Briljent Aligns with My Passion for HIT Initiatives

I came to Briljent for three reasons: the culture, the work product and the growth potential. I’ve spent most of my career committed to public Health IT programs and was surprised to learn just how much Briljent is involved in these initiatives. I view my capacity with Briljent as a natural continuation of my passion for HIT initiatives, and am truly excited to add my experience to Briljent’s training, project management and change management services.
