  • 8. Cost
    Software Costs vary depending on many factors:
    Solution Installation and Implementation are typically up to 50% of the cost of the software
    Support costs are typically up to 20% of the cost of the software
    Organizations implementing a clinical informatics solution should also plan to incur additional costs above and beyond the capital and operational costs of system implementation. The typical costs can be temporary productivity changes during implementation and training, short term labor/wage increases if double entry is used during implementation, and other soft costs associated with a change in business processes.
    Bingham, C. (2009, October 15). Systems Engineer Manager, HealthMEDX. Personal Communication

    HealthMEDX assigns a contact person to their clients to provide continuous contact and help through their relationship with client.
    Develop a customer care plan based on the client’s needs and goals during their implementation process
    Throughout their use of HealthMEDX, the clients are able to schedules consultations and training services as needed.
    Surveys are given out to clients and employees; these surveys are constantly evaluated and changes made based on feedback
  • 10. Conclusion
    Because HealthMEDX divides the system into functional categories by job such as nursing, health aides, physicians, etc; it provides a secure and easy work flow.
    We were shown how to use the health record and we feel that it would be easy to adapt to using.
    Upon implementation, HealthMEDX provides support to new users continuing throughout the life of the relationship with the company.
