5 Year Vision Plan Fast Tracks Chicago Company's Success

Rising Medical Solutions CEO Explains How You Can Do It

CHICAGO, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Every important trip requires a roadmap. Five years ago Founder and CEO of Rising Medical Solutions, Jason Beans, penned what he wanted his company to look like in 2013.

Beans' goal for Rising was to be much more than just a company handling workers compensation bill review or providing workers comp utilization review services. After many drafts, Beans completed Rising's "Look-Out Point," a clear, aggressive and entertaining 11-page vision plan. It's a roadmap for employees and gives customers a look at what makes the Company tick.

He recommends these five tips:

1) Write in the present: Base your plan in the here and now, not future. Say, "We are leading healthcare in a new direction." Not, "We will lead healthcare in a new direction."

2) Get specific on outcomes: Pick some tangible targets and make sure they're clearly stated.

3) Stay general on how: Don't get bogged down in explaining how your team will get to the end. Instead, treat it like a party. Tell everyone where and when and let them figure out how to get there.

4) Inspire: People want to be a part of something amazing. A winning team. Changing the world for the better. Let them know how they are going to do those things.

5) Be bold: Identify your long-term BHAG (big, hairy, audacious goal). The five-year plan is not the end of the line; it's the beginning of a long exciting journey. You have to hit base camp one on your way to the summit of Everest. Having a long-term plan will keep people motivated and humble.

Beans shares the "Look-Out Point" with every new hire and they're tested to ensure they know it. He also reviews it regularly, including one section each month in the leadership meeting, so it becomes part of the company's DNA.

The last five years have reaped many dividends for Rising, including:

* A more than tripling of revenues
* An Inc. 5000 ranking every year
* A 106% increase in client base
* Office expansion in downtown Chicago, plus new offices in Milwaukee, Phoenix and Tampa
* New service and technology offerings, like: Business Intelligence and Analytics for Claims, Ultimate Claims Management and Physician Pharmacy Review

Beans is now in the midst of setting the next five-year plan with an eye towards moving people out of their comfort zones – an element he feels is critical. "We learned a lot the first time around and we are excited to stretch to achieve the next phase of our BHAG," said Beans. "Our Core Values will continue to lead us there."

About Rising Medical Solutions: Rising is a national firm that provides medical bill review, hospital bill review, utilization review services and other medical cost containment offerings. Inc. magazine ranks the Chicago-based company as one of the fastest growing private enterprises in America.

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.
