How to Choose the Right Hospital IT Outsourcing Firm: Vetting Vendors
Vetting vendors is vastly different than vetting new software: you will have no demos to review, and complex factors must be explored that may strongly impact costs and returns.
Once you’ve identified potential candidates who at least pass the telephone call test, vetting them will require intensive onsite meetings that include hospital leaders and stakeholders.
If a vendor cannot detail its preventative and response capabilities to security risks in its area of expertise, contracting with the firm could increase your hospital’s vulnerability to the many varieties of cyber crime that are proliferating today. Poor security risk mitigation could interfere with patient care or even cause an organizational shutdown.
