 RAPID Healthcare History:

The healthcare division of ECC Technologies, Inc. formed over fifteen years ago when Rochester Regional Health, formerly Via Health System and UR Medicine, formerly Strong Memorial Hospital were looking for a CMS connectivity solution.  Because of an existing relationship between ECC Technologies and the Monroe County Medical Society, these hospitals trusted our organization to deliver reliable, cost-effective connectivity to Medicare.  A few months later, we began outreach to surrounding hospitals in New York State to offer the same solution. Within a couple years, ECC Technologies was connecting hospitals across the country to CMS and it made sense to become a certified Network Service Vendor (NSV).  This is how RAPID Healthcare Solutions came to be.

 RAPID Healthcare Mission:

At RAPID Healthcare Solutions and ECC Technologies, customer service is paramount.  Jen Starks started the healthcare division of ECC Technologies to provide affordable solutions for healthcare providers locally and nationally.  In Jen’s view, healthcare is an industry where you can make a difference. While we may not be the least expensive network service vendor in the market, we offer a wide range of solutions and the absolute best customer service you will find.  Read more about what our customers have to say about our service here.
