A best-fit solution balances patient and practitioner needs, cost, and capability.

Adopting an EHR without a calculated and traceable approach to selection leads to:

  • Cost overruns.

  • Poor adoption amongst practitioners.

Selecting an EHR using our approach has many benefits. It leads to:

  • Traceability of decision making.
  • Easier navigation of complex regulatory environments.
