Survey – Vendor Evaluation/Selection

One of the more "high stakes" decisions a CIO will make is the selection of an HIT platform, point-solution (e.g. EHR or LIS) or long-term technology partner.

S&P’s 100%-objective vendor research and selection methodology gives you the information, tools and processes you need to choose the vendor that can take you where you need to go—with maximum confidence and best value.

We help our clients to:

  • Increase the chances for a successful (on-time/on-budget) project
  • Lower acquisition and implementation costs
  • Garner organizational support around decision-making
  • Neutralize “vendor bias” during the selection process
  • Set the stage for change through internal marketing and communication
  • Develop migration plans from legacy systems to new vendor systems
