Why do you require a consultant?
Healthcare Informatics is at the cutting edge of technology where the frontiers are confusing, blurred or unknown. There are many companies in the fray and most concentrate on only niche applications. Each one can provide to you only what they have and mostly as a pre packaged bundle. They generally assess your requirements not by what you actually require but by what they feel they can hard sell to you from their portfolio. Their sales rep spouts a lot of technical jargon, confusing you completely, ending with the standard one-liner "We know what is best for you". Many of these companies have IT techs with low or negligible medical background and if they do have doctors on board, they are youngsters with hardly any clinical experience. World over there have been and will continue to be, reports of purchase of Hi tech equipment which have rusted away in a cellar because of lack of technical manpower, spares, or just incorrect selection. Bottom line - The HCIT company with its negotiating skills would have made its sale, but the confused buyer is left holding the baby. Not to be forgotten is the exorbitant price he paid for it ! Remember, a successful HCIT project is not just hardware... It is an intelligent synergy of hardware, software, middleware, manware and lessonware.
HCIT applications can be very powerful tools of social emancipation as well as profit generators; they are, however, generally, expensive to setup. Therefore, one should never make the error of falling for sales talk, because of inadequate inputs, in this highly technical field (to be frank , how do you expect a doctor to be a whiz at IT?).
This is where a consultant comes in. He is well versed with the technology available in the market and he (not being affiliated to any single company), will be able to give to you an honest report using a combination of the best and most practical ('Best of Breed') technologies relevant to YOU or your company. He will be YOUR man negotiating with THEM for the best that YOU need.
BPO the money saving mantra: Today most businesses are striving hard to lower their input costs. The latest tool is BPO or Business Process Outsourcing. In simple words it is cheaper and easier to hire outside experts to carry out your vital (but non-core) business requirements rather than be saddled with a department (and the consequent problems) for the same. An example would be a medium level business house, hiring staff cars on requirement rather than maintaining its own fleet. Look at the flexibility, freedom and savings (in cash and kind) it offers. Hiring a Consultant who offers "turnkey" services offers the same advantages. For HCit , HCIT Consultant is THE answer. How do you save?

Healthcare projects are extremely complex as the setup requires a precise strategy and process flow. Any deviation could lead to huge cost or time overruns. Setup of even a small clinic requires a trained team of experts who work together to provide the precise path to successful completion. Even a single delay or mixup, be it with the Authorisations, permissions or even equipment selection could lead to unsavory results.
Why do you need HCit Consultant ?
Globally, consultants are a dime a dozen. Any individual who completes a two bit computer course decides to setup a consultancy. At the other end of the spectrum are huge multinationals, with bloated budgets, over paid CEOs and a massive staff. They specialize in killer presentations and talk about costs running into millions of dollars, at the drop of a hat. The dotcom crash has knocked the bottom of hundreds of such companies, but many still continue, oblivious to the fact that their account registers are running red. Who pays for their lavish life style ?- of course you, the gullible customer. Today with the whole world in recession, don't you think that its time you got value for money?
HCIT is not just a matter of slinging together hardware and software. Any Tom, Dick or Harry can make a few screens, databases, queries and reports and string them together. But do they understand the psyche of a doctor? Can they design an application that understands the needs of a doctor? Do they include ergonomy in SW design to ensure higher efficiency? Are they using the most appropriate communication link? There are hundreds of such crucial questions to be answered. We must realize that medicine is a science which is best practiced as an art. The IT requirements of medical institutions are very different from those of financial, business or other institutions. Special care has to be given to application of ergonomics, work flow and medical logic which (unlike business logic) can, to the untrained observer, be very illogical and sometimes even contradictory. Next, check out their experts, how many of them actually know about the travails of medical practice? Ask how many employ, fulltime, a doctor with many years of experience in IT (who contributes to the design process and is not just a figure head) and almost 90% will have no answer. Ask the remaining 10% if they have doctors with years of medical practice, years of experience as a deft programmer along with hands on experience in HCIT and you will probably have only HCit Consultant left standing in the fray.
