Healthcare organizations are faced with challenges such as government regulations, demand for subsidized healthcare, and meeting patients' rising expectations. These challenges often drive healthcare organizations to look for IT applications that are niche to this industry vertical. However, instead of developing these applications in-house, many healthcare organizations rely on outsourcing vendors for skilled manpower and cost effective services.
Choosing a vendor for custom application development is like entering into a marriage. If the outsourcer and the outsourcing vendor do not mutually agree on some of the key factors behind this successful marriage, the contract will be terminated, resulting in an expensive and time consuming divorce.
