To keep pace with the healthcare industry’s ever-changing landscape, provider IT professionals must know what’s needed to make fast but detailed decisions and avoid mistakes. Health Management Technology recently asked our Vice President of Sales, Kent Rowe, to weigh in on what questions healthcare IT executives should ask when making an effective IT purchase.
Here are three of Kent’s key questions to consider:
- What is the cost of maintaining the status quo versus the cost of failure? Quantify the opportunity cost as much as possible.
- What is the overall value and return on investment? Be sure to view the decision in context of other savings and benefits.
- Is the solution interoperable? This is a critical question to ask to make sure that you are integrating new and old systems to future-proof your IT solutions.
