Strategic Advising
“We’re not sure if we should build or buy? I hear that Epic can do this and that, but for some reason we are still struggling to please the docs and nurses. My team and I are 100% committed to helping, however the signal to noise ratio seems a bit overwhelming.” – Executive of healthcare delivery system
Electronic Health Record and Optimization
“I wouldn’t ever go back to paper. I just wish that our company had someway to easily tell me how I can be more efficient during my patient facing time as well as during non-patient facing time such as InBasket tasks. I’ve gotten used to just blocking off 2-3 hours each weekend before the kids get up and tidying up my charts.” - Family Practice Physician
Training and Communication
“I sat through 8 hours of EHR training in order to get my password for go-live, however when the EHR changes I am not always aware of the latest. It seems like it’s changing every day and my patients are noticing my frustration.” – Med-Surg Nurse
“Some Doctors Are Still Holding Out To Find That ONE BIG THING In The EHR To ‘Get My Time Back’. In Reality, There Is No ‘One Big Thing’! The EHR Has Many Small Tweaks And Customizations That Must Be Used Consistently To Save Time And Be More Productive! It’s Just Like Saving Pennies And Nickels, It All Adds Up To Big Wins Very Quickly!”

Our Past Business Partners
Business Testimony
“As an accomplished physician with an interest in adaptive technologies, and founder of Calyx Partners, LLC, Dr. Butler has literally helped to form and shape the physician engagement strategies, system optimization efforts and clinical direction of too many hospitals, clinics, provider systems and healthcare organizations to count.”

- Jon Manis, CIO SVP Sutter Health

“Calyx Partners, was a welcomed addition to our leadership team at New York Health + Hospital. We engaged Dr. Butler’s company, Calyx Partners, to backfill a strategic CMIO position during a critical juncture of our Epic Implementation journey. They brought deep knowledge of Epic Systems’ people, processes and technologies as well, which helped NYCHHC leverage an ‘Epic First’ methodology in order to maximize their current healthcare technology investments.”

- Ed Marx, CIO, The Advisory Board

“Calyx Partners offered me a very effective executive and informatics coaching program that allowed me to mature in my approach to clinical informatics and the politics that comes with this new role. Many physicians do not have this level of nuanced mentorship as we make the transition from the bedside to the boardroom. Calyx definitely helped me be more efficient, effective and confident in getting things done at Bon Secours.”

Dr. Phillip Snider, Senior Medical Informatics Officer, Bon Secours Health System, Inc
