News, Latest Projects, and Job Opportunities
Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA) added to the ePrescribing Gateway
ELECTRONIC PRIOR AUTHORIZATION (EPA): 10/26/2021 12:00:00 AM

OAKDALE -- Logisolve's ePrescribing Gateway has proven to be a great time/cost savings for partners that need to implement ePrescription connectivity.  Last year, we upgraded our solution to utilize the latest SCRIPT version 2017071 required by CMS.  This year, we have added the functionality for electronic prior authorization (ePA).

ePA allows the payer and the physician to communicate with each other electronically with the intent to determine if the payer will approve the payment of a medication that requires approval. This communication has historically been done with time consuming faxes and phone calls.  Today, with the user of the latest NCPDP SCRIPT standard, it can be done seamlessly through the physicians EMR. Logisolve assists with this process by providing a framework that can quickly be implemented within the EMRs or Payers environment to handle all interaction with the intermediary.  This not only speeds up the development cycle, but also the certification process required to utilize this capability on the network.

Remote Mentoring Opportunities at Logisolve
LEADER INSIGHT: 3/19/2021 12:00:00 AM

Like many other areas, career mentoring has taken on a new feel in today’s work place and has become more “remote mentoring”. I was recently asked to help develop a remote mentoring program with my alma mater, St Mary’s University of Minnesota to match graduating seniors up with alumni for career development in the industries of the student’s majors. While the program has traditional mentoring expectations; provide insight for career direction, sharing knowledge & experience and being a positive coach, it does so in a remote environment with scheduled video calls rather than meetings for coffee or lunch. Regardless, the impact of having a coach/mentor still provides the benefits for both parties.


I am fortunate enough to have a neighbor who is a senior executive at a large corporation who I look to for my coaching and mentoring. While our periodic lunches and coffees have been paused, we still find time to email or talk by phone for my informal mentoring sessions. I feel it always helps to talk career situations with someone with other perspectives.


At Logisolve, we have many ways to get involved with coaching and mentoring. Our Capability Leaders are not only subject matter experts in their respective fields, they also act as mentors for their teams with career direction, industry insight and coaching tips on project situations. In addition, several of our senior consultants have participated as mentors for our Ingenio consultants. We were fortunate to have 6 senior project managers onsite (before Covid) to mentor/coach each our of 6 associate project managers at our largest client. After speaking with both the mentors and mentees, there was always positive feedback and benefits that each party got out of the program.


Jeremy Mann, one of our Senior Business Analysts has also mentored several of our Ingenio consultants, including a recent consultant internship at another one of our larger clients. The feedback I received from our intern was always very positive on how helpful and encouraging Jeremy was during their mentoring sessions.


Coaching and mentoring may be all the more important now during these times. If you are interesting getting involved with being a coach/mentor or want a coach/mentor at Logisolve, please feel free to reach out to Heather Miner (Ingenio Capability Lead – Heather.Miner@Logisovle.com) or myself (Ron.Kimlinger@Logisovle.com).

We will look to get you connected.

Scalable, Web, Mobile and Cloud Solutions with Leadership Provided by Top SME's
LEADER INSIGHT: 4/9/2021 12:00:00 AM

OAKDALE, MN -- A decade ago, software outsourcing was seen as an attractive option for enterprises that wanted to lower operational costs overall when the purpose of the organization was not primarily focused on the IT industry. Nowadays, as the demand for IT resources continues to increase exponentially, outsourced and offshore software development has become part of most company’s resource model.

Once a customer is convinced of the benefits of a variable technology resource model, they look at the right local, offshore, hybrid and/or FTE mix to do the work. Logisolve's Development Center gives customers the ability to outsource work locally, at a significantly lower cost than using 40-hour-per-week consultants. In short, Logisolve’s Development Center gives a hybrid, local option that offers the benefits of offshore with the assurance of local, trusted resources. Our Development Center also has the flexibility to secure resources from our Offshore team when preferred or when necessary.

What is the Logisolve Development Center?

The Development Center is a core team of resources with structured software development practices dedicated to providing development capacity both externally to Logisolve clients as well as internally to Logisolve.

Below are some key facts about the Development Center and our team:

  • Currently consists of 5 FTE core team members with the ability to scale up FTE’s based on workload.
  • We are also able to add specific technology SME’s when necessary.
  • With Logisolve's deep pool of experienced consulting talent across the software development spectrum, we are able to provide the right mix of resources for the team at the appropriate times during a project.
  • Uses a structured work intake process and development activities are managed through DevOps.
  • Utilizes Agile development methods when appropriate and conducts daily standups with Development Center teams and client leadership when necessary.
  • Made up of Minnesota-based resources managed by experienced technologists.
  • Depending on the project and the client’s objectives, our project teams may also include client FTE resources and/or our own Offshore resources.
  • Focused primarily on Web, Mobile, and Cloud solutions. The Development center has access to both Azure and AWS development environments.

What type of work is done out of the Development Center?

The Development Center has picked up a lot of steam in the past few months, and we are very pleased to be currently engaged on 8 different software development and support projects.

The type of work varies, but the Development Center is structured to effectively take on the following type of work:

  • Out-sourced custom development. This may involve development of a new end-to-end solution or it might involve the development of new enhancements or modules for an existing application. Logisolve has the ability to not only provide development services, but we can also provide the project managers, scrum masters, business analysts, and quality assurance analysts needed to support the team. A majority of our work is either out-sourced custom development or variable work as described below.
  • Variable work. Development work that ebbs and flows over the course of the year. This type of work is ideal for the Development Center and allows our clients to stay focused on their key initiatives while we handle the overflow work.
  • Long term support and maintenance – contract or by the hour. We can provide support and maintenance services for an existing client application or for an application built by our Development Center. Support and maintenance contracts can be a flat monthly fee or by the hour. We are currently providing support and maintenance services under both monthly fee and hourly agreements.
  • Capacity Boost. Basically, this is the ability to provide a development capacity boost to a team at a critical point in a project. Recently, the Development Center team provided 750 hours of development capacity over a 4-week period to help a client get a project over the finish line.

Logisolve is extremely excited to continue providing cutting edge capabilities to our customers. For more information on our Development Center, please reach out to me at dave.lillquist@logisolve.com or contact your Logisolve Account Representative.

What's in a Name?
SOLUTION SPOTLIGHT: 3/12/2021 12:00:00 AM

OAKDALE, MN -- As it turns out, quite a bit of work actually.

Many of you may already be aware of the efforts that the “CARS” team has been taking to create a new, cloud-based solution for cash management and reconciliation. The plan is to build a scalable design that will allow for greater flexibility to fit clients of various organizational size as well as being industry agnostic. Our current CARS solution, which has been in production for over ten years, has proven to be extremely dependable for mid to large-size healthcare provider groups, but requires the client’s internal IT support and infrastructure. A cloud-based solution will allow for greater operational control for Logisolve and facilitate a more efficient, rapid deployment of updates and enhancements while guaranteeing that all of our clients are consistently utilizing the same version of the solution.

Fortunately, we have highly-skilled individuals working on the technical architecture of the new solution along with subject matter experts providing business requirements to ensure that the end product will meet expectations. What we don’t have yet is a name. What should the new solution be called? While ‘CARS’ has history and has built up some name recognition and a favorable reputation over the years, it is directly associated with the original design and architecture and we are intentionally trying to establish a separate, wholly-new product and identity with our cloud-based solution.

The “experts” say that a name should be simple, easy to pronounce, and descriptive/representative of what a product does. The name ‘CARS’ was created mostly by accident; it was simply derived from what the application did: ‘Cash Application/Reconciliation Solution’. We were lucky enough to stumble upon an acronym that made sense while also being simple and pronounceable. Unfortunately, we haven’t quite had our eureka moment yet with the new product.

We’ve road-tested some different names so far and ‘Beanware’ (i.e. software for bean counters) has gotten the most traction, however, much like sharing a planned name for a newborn child, everyone has opinions on why a name doesn’t work. With Beanware, it is a combination of the fact that apparently some accountants are a bit sensitive and don’t care for the term along with other more negative connotations that exist around the use of the phrase bean counter. Who knew? I do now.

The other learning along the way is that it seems nearly every two-syllable word is already in use either as a product or as a .com. The URL has most likely been claimed already and is now for re-sale at a premium price. Beanware.com? CashRec.com? QuickRec.com? All owned by domain parkers. Not actively being used but available for ransom. There is a whole world of domain parkers and brokers out there waiting for someone like us to fall in love with a name and be willing to let them cash in on having the “foresight” to acquire it. It would pain me to have to fork over any money to this seedy industry, so maybe it means moving on to .org, .biz, or .finance?

So, what’s in a name? Well, sometimes it’s a no-brainer and a natural, easy fit and other times it takes quite a bit of brainstorming to find the perfect match. You’ll have to stay tuned to find out where we land for our new solution although I shudder at the thought of receiving all of the “constructive” feedback once we decide to make the new name public. Sometimes too many opinions can be a bad thing!

In the meantime, if inspiration strikes, feel free to send your suggestions to twenner@logisolve.com.

Creating Consistency in Process Through Workflow
LEADER INSIGHT: 2/26/2021 12:00:00 AM

A process in your company may be done by multiple people, it could be completed multiple different ways, and it may use or involve multiple systems. Most likely there are many processes throughout your company. You may have a belief that these processes are being done consistently the same way, but no real proof without a lot of analysis across multiple systems.

Workflow will provide consistency and efficiency through the following:


  • Defining a process that every person will follow
  • Provide a history of events so that bottle necks and inconsistencies can be easily found
  • Enable the use of multiple systems without needing to train individuals on each of the systems
  • Make it much easier for a person to move from one area of the company to another without extensive training


Workflow develops a defined processed that is driven by the system; not the individual. This creates consistency on how the process is done.


Workflow provides a history of each step/event in the process. This creates a detailed account of the process makes it easier to determine where bottlenecks or issues reside.

Workflow allows multiple systems to be accessed and the retrieve data to be used throughout the process. It will also update the systems as needed. This avoids multiple entry points and the possibility of entry errors. It also reduces the number of systems a user needs to learn down to one. With workflow the person can easily transition from one area of the company to another with out having to train on new systems.


All of this adds up to consistent, efficient processes through out your company. Saving both time and money along with adding greater flexibility to easily move staff to area where they are most needed.
