How Vendor Stability Factors into EHR Software
The following is an excerpt from the ebook, "The Complete Guide to Electronic Health Records Software". The ebook covers a variety of information pertaining to EHR software, including vendor stability, common mistakes made during implementation, and how meaningful use can help your practice.

Vendor stability is also a factor when it comes to staying current with regulatory demands in the medical industry.Signs of vendor stability include such basics as the number of times the vendor’s name has changed over the years, the number of times it was acquired by other vendors, the number of times it “sunsetted” or discontinued any of its products, or simply stopped supporting / updating any of its systems. If they did discontinue a product(s), were the current users given the updated system, or was there a cost?
