Well I guess nothing happened today. Still wouldn't be surprised if something shows up on our calendars at some point in the near future

Yes, extended partners could do a good job with data delivery governance.

Rad has the account manger (retained) desktop team (external) clinical it team (retained)

I may be missing a few groups but management for desktop which were also retained. If they do any cuts it would be the remaining management group. The directors for sure as there will soon be too many director levels and possibly downsize clinical informatics and the desktop managers.

The trend I’ve noticed is 1:20

RAD serves as a second, less rigid interface between the users and IT (the other being the service desk.) If they seem overstaffed that's more a criticism of Ascension's staffing practices than RAD. They handled (at least when I left) day to day IT support, user demand (doctor wants X, Y or Z thing from IT,) logistics and projects. Ever wondered how practices ended up with network connectivity, phones and computers?

At this point AT should just dive right in and clear out all the remaining people and see how that outsourcing model really works. Maybe start clearing out GL's office too for that matter. Boy would that save some money and streamline the business model.

No offense but what do most RAD people do? It honestly seems like they are overstaffed compared to the other groups that are still left.

Will RAD be willing to step up and train their extended partners/replacement?
They could stand to loose their severance if that won't train.

Would not be surprised. RAD executive leadership can only quote cliches and phrases from their retreats. When they are talking they are only interested in hiding the truth until they are ready for more extended partners. They do not want a mass exodus before their knowledge exchange.

A third party could do it but it defeats the purpose of RAD. I was actually surprised FS remained part of RAD as they are now administratively disconnected from the environment. Local Network and Telecom were part of RAD (2018 - 2021) as they were heavily field based and it allowed for (hypothetical, didn't actually happen in any significant capacity due to workload and real world concerns from all sides) cross training of FS (so they could eventually replace local Network/Telecom.) Local Network and Telecom were removed from RAD after the layoffs. My understanding is they tried to group all ministries into singular buckets for Network/Telecom but have since reverted to local ministry queues (presumably because a several hundred ticket backlogged bucket doesn't look good.)

To think extended partners can't take over Rad. Is well, backward thinking.

Rad is already understaffed! How can they cut more? Or is it all now with the extended partners tsking over?
