Twelve-year-old Edaptive Systems, LLC, a federally focused company in the healthcare IT industry, placed #95 in this year's Healthcare Informatics 100. This 8(a) veteran-owned, solutions-oriented firm-located in the Baltimore, Md. Metropolitan area-provides custom software solutions and project management support services to government and industry, built from the ground up or as add-ons to existing systems. Managing partner Frank Blair describes Edaptive as a “stable, yet growing company” with core capabilities in the areas of software development, program/project management (PMO), database management, Web-based applications, and business intelligence solutions for large population response applications.
Although Edaptive Systems' initial customers included clients such as John Deere, American Greetings, and Dunbar Armored, the privately held firm expanded into the federal medical services community almost 10 years ago. The company's senior leadership team has accumulated a combined 60 years of experience supporting administrative and mission-critical healthcare-related initiatives for the Department of Health and Human Services, which is Edaptive Systems' primary federal client, explains Blair.
Currently, Edaptive Systems is the primary contractor on five contracts with a large federal agency. As a result, the company experienced a 362 percent growth in revenue from 2009 to 2010, and the value of its current healthcare contracts has surpassed $210 million.
Edaptive Systems focuses on employee creativity and technology to produce innovative, high-quality, and dependable IT solutions. “We maintain very high standards of integrity and fairness in dealing with our customers, competitors, and employees,” explains Blair. “We focus on being an upright, caring, and generous member of the community. Our vision is to be a company most admired for its exceptional people, performance, and service.”
Looking ahead, Edaptive Systems will be expanding its help desk, security, and information assurance offerings. “We're also looking to expand our federal health IT expertise into other agencies with similar problems,” says Blair.
