About Us


Discovery is seeing what everyone has seen and thinking

what nobody else has thought.

Albert Szent-Gyorgyi

Community Enabling Solutions (CES) is the employee-owned Health/Information Technology service provider were established in 2010, with a focus on health education, knowledge sharing and collaborative interventions.  CES uses a unique collection of best practice-based technologies and methodologies called PHIERS (Public Health Information Exchange and Resource Solution), pronounced “fires”, to facilitate care coordination and case management services for patients and caregivers.

By combining research into the challenges facing America’s healthcare system with first- hand experience with the nation’s most cutting edge Health/IT applications, CES has developed a unique perspective and delivery solution that complements and completes what others are leaving undone.   In, this way we add value to the healthcare reform conversation by expanding possibilities, filling unmet needs and leading where others will only follow.

CES is also the Preferred Technology Partner for

PHIERS.org and the Health Reform Coalition 

CES, in collaboration with experts in school health and healthcare administrations, has developed PHIERS into a specialized management system capable of supporting the healthcare needs of students and potentially their families. The end result of these collaborations is the development of a cloud-based School Health Infrastructure that enables school nurses to provide and manage a process-oriented portable health record (PHR) that can track a student’s transition through all grade levels and locations.

The CES team consisting of experienced personnel from finance, IT, and the healthcare industry have developed and refined this version of PHIERS to not only address the specific needs of school aged children but be adaptable to provide effective healthcare management solutions for seniors, veterans and patients with developmental needs.   CES consultants average more than 15 years experience in IT-related information engineering and consulting engagements that include business process innovation, knowledge transfer and learning management systems integration.  We have invested more than five years researching and collaborating with healthcare industry experts, and directly supporting the world’s most widely-deployed Electronic Health Record, the VA’s information System’s Technology Architecture (VistA), as well as it’s migration to the next generation web-based VistA – HealtheVet architecture.

We have also received specialized training on MyHealtheVet (the VA’s patient portal) as well as a certificate in “Care Coordination and Home Tele-Health” from the VA that focuses on “Caregiver-support” systems and solutions.

This certificate program was sponsored by the VA’s Office of Care Coordination and focuses on case management processes and tools that enhance and extend the impact of healthcare services, while improving patient and caregiver support and education.  As such, we are well equipped to help patients, caregivers and providers enjoy a greater likelihood of positive medical outcomes and a better patient experience by improving health while saving time and cutting the costs of healthcare delivery across the entire public health value stream.

Our solutions will bridge the information gaps between health and social services providers, clients and families, in a manner that participants can easily understand, identify with and act on – while generating measurable outcomes in a timely, cost-effective and sustainable manner.  We will accomplish this while overcoming many of the barriers of race, color, religion, creed, disability, sex, ancestry, national origin, age, or sexual orientation in compliance with local, state, and federal laws.

Despite our Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) status, our commitment to excellence, continuous improvement and innovative approach to problem solving keep us ahead of the pack. We are dedicated to the principle that “every person in every community deserves equal access to comprehensive, culturally competent” health information and skills training that is user-friendly, actionable and available when and where it’s needed most, using the sources that the people trust.
