Need some assumptions answered by a US Medical Records Directors. At least 2 of them. Need comments on the assumptions below- do they agree or disagree or have any additional input per comment under each section.
1. EMR adoption requires integration of existing systems or their replacement with EMR-supplied modules
2. Challenges of integration are more expensive and/or unavailable to resolve than switching to replacement systems
3. Switching to replacement systems involves loss of capabilities and/or scope of information stored in the records
4. Physician's ability to enter information and control care workflow from a single system is a good measure of EMR adoption
1. "Platform" that could enable existing systems to interact with EMR by storing and retrieving comprehensive record data would be very valuable to providers
2. Such platform would be perceived as means of achieving meaningful use progress along EMRAM stages
3. Product-based offering of this platform would be perceived as more robust and valuable than a service-based offering
4. If such platform offered comprehensive remote capabilities for physicians and integration of their office systems, it would be a drastic differentiation for competing platforms
5. Integration of remote physician systems contributes to retention and resulting revenue growth of the providers

6. EMRAM-related incentives are only partially relevant to Medical Records
7. Technology details of the Platform are tertiary for Medical Records when considering the Value Proposition of the Platform
8. CareConnect is an effective product name for the Platform
[url removed, login to view] fee on recurring basis for a product license is more readily accepted than a higher one-time service fee
[url removed, login to view] is easier for purchase decision to be made if our product was sold for each system to be integrated than as comprehensive solution
[url removed, login to view] and configuration fees should be embedded in the first-year license for our product.
4.$30,000 in first-year license fee and $15,000 in ongoing license fee per integrated system is the right range of pricing for our product.
[url removed, login to view] installments for annual license fees is an attractive payment structure for providers
[url removed, login to view] use contracts that do not offer ownership of the product is an acceptable delivery approach for our product.
