I am a partner Healthcare IT Strategy and in addition to driving our EHR practice, I run our firm's Patient Relationship Management/Patient Equity Management PRM/PEM practice. Most of the leading CRM vendors have been my personal clients, and for 20 years I've helped clients with the entire CRM life cycle; defining requirements, software selection and implementation, and process re-engineering. Most of my clients had approached CRM from the perspective of making the customer interaction more efficient--Quicker. I help them make it more effective--Better.

Moving from PRM to PEM doesn't require additional technology, it requires a better understanding of your customer facing business processes.
