1 Choosing an HIT Vendor Solution Susan A. Smith MMHA 6600- Healthcare Informatics and Technology Instructor: Matthew Matusiak
2 The purpose of the SWOT analysis is to determine the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats for vendor software for the medical practice of Partners in Health Care Associates. This four-physician practice is lacking a functioning ambulatory electronic health record and the legacy physician practice management system is no longer supported by the vendor and is currently operational under limited capabilities. PHC is seeking software that accommodates the needs of the practice without being cost prohibitive. The SWOT analysis provided a determination for the following vendor software companies: Epic, Allscripts and Nextgen. The recommendation is for PHC to adopt Epic and Nextgen for their organization. This determination was made based on the analysis and the needs of the organization. Allscipts Professional EHR is a solution for small to midsize practices, providing clinical programming, data and financial solutions (Allscripts, 2016). The benefits for the organization will be improved patient management and organizational performance along with interconnectibility with hospitals and other facilities providing for a decrease in medical errors and improved patient care.
