    An ACO Roundtable on 'Early Results'

    in Health

    On the Wednesday, February 5th, 2014 episode at 12 Noon Pacific/3PM Eastern time we kick off our 2014 coverage with an ACO Roundtable with three industry veterans who will dig into the headlines and discuss the meaning of the data.


    For a context piece on the episode, see: 'More than Half of ACOs "Save Money' Only 1/4 Bonus Providers' on ACO Watch.  


    Following a rather robust conversation on twitter centered around the recently published 'start up costs for ACOs' published by the National Association of ACOs (NAACOs), we decided it was a good time to dig beyond the headlines and try to make sense of the growth and dispersion of ACOs both nationally and regionally.


    On the broadcast is Fred Goldstein, Jim Hansen and David Crais.

    Founded in 2007, Tekskills has traversed many hurdles to grow in stature as an information technology (IT) services company.


    Although it is headquartered in Edison, New Jersey, it has a major facility in Hyderabad, India and offices in Milpitas, California, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


    We will glance through the company’s growth path first.  


    When the company started operations initially, it was known as Prosertech. Only two years later, i.e. in 2009, it acquired ISO 9001: 2008 certification.


    The year 2010 saw the company being rechristened as Tekskills Info, and in 2012, it became Tekskills.


    It received an icing on the cake in August 2013, when it was appraised at Level 3 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI).


    The company has not looked back since. It has lined up a roadmap for expanding on a large scale. It is planning to setup a new full-fledged facility in India’s Silicon Valley, Bengaluru (Bangalore). It also plans to add more personnel to its Hyderabad facility.  


    The company offers various IT services to its clientele across various verticals. Principal offerings of Tekskills are consulting services, enterprise applications, business intelligence, infrastructure management, immigration services, web designing, and SAP implementation.


    The modules offered under consulting services comprise cost benefit analysis, project management, staff augmentation, global delivery, US staffing, business outsourcing, engineering service, and manpower outsourcing.


    The modules falling under enterprise application are Oracle application implementation services, application development services, application migration services, business process automation, business process management, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, custom application development services, mobile application development, and rich Internet applications.
