Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys Michael Dagley and Brittain Sexton authored an article in The Tennessean outlining the important relationship between healthcare providers and information technology vendors. With more and more reliance on technology in the healthcare industry, this relationship can have a critical impact on the type of care patients receive. As Michael and Brittain point out in the article, “health care providers can employ strategies to get the most out of their health IT vendor relationships, such as carefully defining the scope of IT projects, specifying important performance metrics in the contract, keeping pressure on the health IT vendor to deliver what was sold, and holding them accountable when they fall short.”

The full article, “Much Depends on Relationships between Health Care Providers, IT Vendors,” was published by The Tennessean on November 3, 2015 and is available online.
