Date:12/10/2008

New white paper explains how purchasers of EMR and Health IT can save thousands of dollars successfully evaluating, selecting, and negotiating electronic medical records and Health IT contracts.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 10, 2008 -- Providers, Administrators, CEOs and IT Directors of medical practices and groups, community hospitals, and community health centers can now learn how to save thousands of dollars and protect their long-term interests by successfully evaluating vendors and negotiating favorable electronic medical records (EMR) and health IT system contracts. The free white paper, 7 Costly Mistakes Made When Purchasing Electronic Medical Records and Health IT - And How to Avoid Them, is available for download at The EHR Group's website.

Written specifically for purchasers of EMR and Health IT, "7 Costly Mistakes Made When Purchasing Electronic Medical Records and Health IT - And How to Avoid Them," illustrates seven of the top mistakes health care organizations make when it comes to purchasing EMR systems. Readers will find advice on how to select the right EMR, get the best price, negotiate a favorable contract, and ensure adequate EMR support and implementation.

"I wrote this report because I meet so many healthcare professionals who have left tens of thousands of dollars on the table by overpaying for their EMR, lost productivity by selecting the wrong EMR, and who are frustrated being tied to long-term contracts that protect the vendor - not the healthcare organization," says Michael Uretz, Executive Director of The EHR Group. "Health care executives and providers, whether part of a medical group, health center, or a community hospital, are often at a disadvantage when purchasing EMR or Health IT systems because they lack the 'insider knowledge' needed to successfully evaluate vendors, get the best price, and negotiate these complex contracts. This white paper will help them level the playing field when evaluating and negotiating with EMR and Health IT vendors."

Loaded with factual information, 7 Costly Mistakes Made When Purchasing Electronic Medical Records and Health IT - And How to Avoid Them, is based on Uretz' 30-years of experience working with all aspects of technology acquisition and implementation. Uretz discusses each of the seven mistakes in detail and includes practical tips healthcare professionals can put to use immediately in their EMR negotiations.
