The Guthrie Clinic is dedicated to optimal life-long health and well-being for each person in the community. Guthrie’s long history of innovation has focused on medicine holistically with multi-specialty groups for over 100 years.

Guthrie needed a consistent and streamlined method for requesting projects and submitting ideas.

Since launch

Projects are now staffed with appropriate resource levels. Employees were able to start using the tools with minimal training and onboarding.

Innovation in healthcare and in project management

Project intake and initiation was haphazard. Projects were being requested ad-hoc via hallway conversations. There was no standard way to request a project and many great project ideas never surfaced. The circumstances became cumbersome and fell on two people to maintain project status using Excel and homegrown software. A consistent method and system were needed to address these issues. This is where edison365’s innovation management software for healthcare came in.

“We had a pretty good foundation in place for project management and we were looking to take it to the next level. Microsoft Project Online got us there and now, with edison365ideas, businesscase, and projects added on, I’m in love!”

- Gail Strausser, Application Manager at Guthrie.

Using Innovative-e's three-step approach

Guthrie partnered with Innovative-e, a leading MS Gold PPM partner. Using Innovative-e’s three-step approach; Foundation, Process Enablement, and Success Management, Guthrie realized quick wins and long term benefits.
