Book Zurman Inc Celebrates 20 year anniversary

Founded on March 3, 1996, Book Zurman, Inc. (BZI) is proud to celebrate its 20th year anniversary and continues to provide a leadership role in Health IT, Healthcare Informatics, Healthcare Interoperability and Terminology standards development.

Through active participation in the development of standards for interoperability, the BZI Team works with Standards Development Organizations (SDO) like Health Level Seven International (HL7) and supporting organizations such as the Healthcare Services Platform Consortium (HSPC), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the Department of Defense (DoD), the Federal Health Architecture (FHA) and other federal agencies to build the framework that enables the healthcare industry to share information and eventually provide computable data. 

BZI remains a privately held company with strong leadership, highly skilled employees, and consultants who are recognized industry leaders in healthcare and Health IT.  Our continued success has been realized through uncompromising dedication to meeting and exceeding customer expectations and the unequaled dedication, skill and professionalism of our employees.  The company is headquartered in Seminole, FL, and maintains consultants in key states across the U.S.

At BZI, we are prepared to address customer needs and challenges across the entire interoperability spectrum. Our knowledge, expertise and flexible teamwork approach insures excellence in tackling even the toughest of technical problems.  At the heart of our approach to excellence is the Book Zurman Agile Service Interoperability Suite (BASIS©) Framework, which enables our expert resources to focus quickly and present rapidly deployable solutions in the finest tradition of the Agile framework. Our clients know: When the challenge requires, not only the leading edge industry standard tools, but deep industry expertise in the problem to be solved, BASIS© is the answer.

How do we do it?  The BASIS© Framework is a combination of advanced, comprehensive system development and program & project management strategies, skillfully employed using our teams’ varied knowledge and expertise.  BASIS© draws from and builds upon key elements of the IBM Rational Unified Process (RUP), PMI’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), Agile (Scrum, XP, CD) iterative development frameworks and DevOps methodologies.


The BASIS© Framework ensures:

  • Rigorous Quality Control Management (QCM)
  • A structured approach to Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)
  • Accurate Cost Management
  • Forward Focused Thinking coupled with Next Generation Technology
  • Customer Centered Solutions

By incorporating customer-specific operational factors and lifecycles, the BASIS© Framework is designed to promote and ensure performance excellence for both public and private organizations and follows the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence. The BASIS IT Enterprise Architectural planning, design, and delivery process can be readily customized to meet individual needs, while sustaining the incorporation of applicable best practices.  These include the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF), the Federal Segment Architecture Methodology (FSAM), the Federal Health Architecture (FHA), the DoD’s Architecture Framework (DoDAF), as well as most commonly accepted guidelines outlined in The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF).  Traditional system lifecycles are difficult to implement, manage and sustain; BASIS© overcomes these difficulties by using elements of CMMI and ITIL, as well as incorporating appropriate Six Sigma practices (Lean, Standard, or DFSS) and PMI guidelines, all tailored to best serve the specific needs of our customers.


“We at Book Zurman, Inc. are thankful to our many customers and our teaming partners for making this anniversary possible,” said Brian Book, president of Book Zurman, Inc.  “Their feedback has shaped our company through the years, and their faith in our ability to support them has sustained us.  We look forward to continuing to serve our valued customers for many years to come.”
