System Selection

This service is becoming increasingly important as more hospitals determine that their current core system vendors will be unable to provide the technology for the organization to get to Meaningful Use or won’t be able to upgrade them in the appropriate timeframe to optimize the CMS incentives. 

There are several approaches to the selection process including full RFP, focused (limited vendors), prime vendor validation and custom.  The service many times will  include vendor knowledge workshops, market position evaluation, pre-implementation planning and contract negotiations. Depending on the level and approach the engagement can range from 2 to 10 weeks in length.
