Last week, our colleague Julie Korostoff posted on Mintz Levin’s Technology Matters blog recommendations for improving ongoing relationships with health IT vendors. These suggestions are particularly helpful for providers working with vendors to meet certain meaningful use requirements. The tips include the following:
- Designate a vendor relationship manager in your organization
- Establish and stick to a routine of regular meetings
- Read the contract!
- Don't sit on problems
- Keep informed of what the vendor's competitors are doing
- Plan ahead for transition
