Some of the more “high stakes” decisions a healthcare organization will make these days involve the selection of an HIT platform, point-solution (e.g. EHR or LIS) or long-term technology partner.
Will a vendor’s technology fit the task-at-hand, and can it grow with you?
What’s their reputation for service and support?
Is there a better value-driven solution that can meet your specifications?
A wrong move here can set an organization up for years of regret. Furthermore, unwary organizations have lost tens of millions of dollars as a result of selecting the wrong vendor partner.
