Or is this an effort to introduce a mechanism for “Big Brother” to gain a view into your business?

You have already spent countless hours examining your office workflow, determining what your needs are in an EHR, viewing demos, and vetting different products. You made your decision, negotiated the vendor contract, and signed on the dotted line.

Marketing your product or service is an on-going daily event. Be certain that everyone in your company/organization is aware and shares your philosophy or business and is as dedicated to the success of delivering a quality product or service as you are.
