Effective IT systems aren’t just repositories of information and automated processes.
They must be gatekeepers of information, providing relevant information at key moments, and also workflow engines, providing items for work at the appropriate time for them to be completed.
One strategy systems vendors use is to “help” hospitals evaluate their current IT systems against “ideally” deployed current vendor offerings. When comparing to these ideal deployments, it’s easy to “see value” in a system replacement. In many cases, a more cost effective solution is to reengineer (and in some cases redeploy) current systems and business processes to more directly address today’s business requirements.
