PORTLAND and BANGOR, Maine – January 13, 2014 - Dahl-Chase Pathology Associates, P.A. and Dahl-Chase Diagnostic Services, Bangor-based physician group and state-of- the-art pathology laboratory providing outstanding anatomic and clinical pathology services, and Winxnet, an IT outsourcing and consulting firm that meets the complete technology needs of healthcare and other private and public sector organizations, today announced that Dahl-Chase has engaged Winxnet for outsourced IT services. Through the arrangement, Winxnet will assume responsibility for supporting all aspects of their information technology needs – everything from the firm’s PCs, devices and network infrastructure to the EHR and custom software applications. A Winxnet Virtual CIO will also join Dahl-Chase’s management team to ensure IT continues to be an enabler for the growth and success of Dahl-Chase.
"While our existing IT team was doing a lot of innovative work with limited resources, we realized that our IT needs were growing quickly and exceeding our capacity. We felt like engaging a health IT expert like Winxnet would really help take us to the next level for IT and provide us with a depth of coverage and a range of skills we lacked," said Orin Buetens MD, President of Dahl-Chase Pathology Associates.
As part of the arrangement, three Dahl-Chase team members have joined Winxnet as full-time employees and will continue to support Dahl-Chase as well as provide services to Winxnet’s growing customer base in the region. Steve Hardy joins Winxnet as a Business Analyst with 28 years of experience in clinical and anatomic pathology project management and consulting. Joe Kelley joins as a Technical Support Specialist with over 15 years of experience in a variety of IT environments. Nate Godin joins Winxnet as a Network Engineer after 11 years with Dahl-Chase.
“We are very excited to be working with Dahl-Chase,” said Chris Claudio, CEO of Winxnet. “They really understand the value that great IT brings to their healthcare organization, and we look forward to providing the technology advice and support that will enable them to achieve their aggressive business objectives. We’re also thrilled to have Steve, Joe and Nate join us. They are experienced and talented professionals, and we expect them to play a key role for Dahl-Chase and as we continue to expand our business in the Bangor region.”
