Rapid Deployment, Right at your Fingertips

During the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, our IT augmentation services helped healthcare provider quickly scale up.

IT Staff Augmentation

Project Overview

To respond to industry-wide changes brought on by the pandemic, AdventHealth needed to rapidly scale up their internal development capabilities.

Our augmented IT staffing solution was ready to help.

Results at a Glance:

  • Vetted, Added, and Trained 20+ Skilled Developers in a Short Timeframe
  • Streamlined Onboarding for Rapid Deployment
  • Enabled Continual Service Delivery in Difficult Times

For healthcare providers (and their patients), the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic were stressful, chaotic, and incredibly unpredictable.

AdventHealth was no exception. In 2020, the non-profit healthcare enterprise needed to rapidly increase internal development capabilities and ramp up their ability to deliver compassionate care throughout a network of 50+ national hospitals: almost overnight, Covid-19 had increased patient intake volume and telemedicine demand.  

This wasn’t just about protecting $12 billion per year in revenue – the company was also responsible for 80,000 employees and the lives of thousands of vulnerable patients.

Under normal circumstances, the process of recruiting, vetting, and onboarding qualified tech talent typically took the company months (and came with no guarantees of success). This was not an option – they needed access to a reliable pool of senior developers immediately.

After exploring several IT staffing and recruitment options, they ultimately settled on Concepta’s augmented IT staffing solution.

Project Scope and Goals

Due to the unique circumstances of the pandemic, AdventHealth needed to quickly multiply their in-house development team without sacrificing the quality of care that their patients depended on. The entire company was overwhelmed by the then-mysterious virus that had taken the world by storm and they lacked the internal resources (and time) to hire and train qualified IT staff. 

On top of all the new features they had to implement as a result of Covid-19, AdventHealth also needed more developers to deliver on its existing, pre-Covid commitments.

Concepta was up for the challenge.

Our Process

Following a discovery call with AdventHealth to go over their requirements and tech stack, our team met internally and developed a multi-tiered plan for increasing their ranks. In recognition of the unique, time-sensitive nature of this request, the first step was to deploy an experienced Scrum team as quickly as possible. From there, we would have some breathing room to source and deploy more developers.

Within 2 weeks, we added and trained 6 skilled senior developers that were able to immediately reduce the burden on AdventHealth’s existing IT department. Over the next 5 months, we brought in 14 additional senior developers, rounding out the expert team at 20. Throughout it all, our in-depth vetting process ensured that, with minimal training. developers were ready to code in just a matter of days.

Key Takeaways

  • Removed barriers to hiring, enabling AdventHealth to expand their team in a matter of weeks rather than months
  • Successfully expanded AdventHealth’s development team by 20, allowing the organization to hit their deadlines
  • Ensured that new hires were able to confidently jump in and start coding with minimal training in a matter of days
  • Contributed to the success of numerous digital assets, including websites, online forms, and mobile applications.
  • Provided peace of mind during a difficult time for the client, the healthcare industry, and the world at large
