Outsourcing an EMR System (pdf - 1.3mb)

  • Understand the end-user’s operational and support needs, matching them to the negotiated contract terms and conditions.

  • Adopt a team approach to the negotiation of all but the most routine IT transactions, including end-user, IT, procurement, legal and, in certain complicated transactions, financial personnel in the team, even if they do not actively participate in the negotiations.

  • The most critical non-financial IT contract provisions are: Products and services descriptions, extent of license grant, intellectual property indemnity, warranties for products and services, limitations of obligations and liabilities, level of support services and events of termination.

  • In evaluating and negotiating contracts for IT products, think of them as operating agreements that govern the use of those products and, in addition, business models that apply directly to both the buyer’s application of the IT products and the generation of virtually all of the seller’s revenue from the sale/license of its products.
