For a hospital that has chosen a new IT vendor or chosen modules to make the hospital compliant with EHR and "Meaningful Use", the work has just begun.
The normal time for a hospital and vendor to “Go Live” with all of the contracted services can run between 12 to 24 months. Normally the vendor is going to ask strategic hospital personnel, who have 40 to 60 hours a week already committed to the hospital, to spend time working with these vendors to be involved with the implementation. AGL offers vendor/hospital consulting services to alleviate the strain on already over worked hospital employees. AGL will become the liaison between the hospital and vendor and will be there every step of the way.
It is imperative to a successful IT vendor implementation that the vendor and hospital work together as a team to meet the required dates and implementation goals. AGL will be there for the hospital to work with the vendor to guarantee that all the dates and goals are met. You have purchased the right products from the right vendor now make sure it is implemented correctly!
