EMR Contract Negotiation

I’ve been working really hard on an EMR book that focuses on EMR selection. My goal is to have it out in the next week or so before I head off to HIMSS. It’s really coming along quite well and I think it will be a valuable e-book for physicians selecting an EMR vendor.

As I was writing, one section that I don’t have as much experience with is the EMR contract negotiation. I’ve found a couple nice resources online, but I thought I’d reach out to all you smart readers to get some more feedback on EMR contract negotiation.

Here’s some questions about it to get you thinking:
What’s the best advice for negotiating an EMR contract?
Which items should you make sure are in an EMR contract?
How much negotiating room do you have in an EMR contract?
Is it worth finding an EMR consultant to help with the negotiations?

Ok, that should get you started. Let me hear your experiences and knowledge with the EMR contract.
