The EHR ‘spin zone’: Separating fact from fiction

Fiction in the EHR spin zone
Unfortunately, as a consultant, I see much more fiction with respect to software and systems than I care to acknowledge. Some vendors are very adept at dancing and romancing unsuspecting healthcare clients right into what I call the EHR “spin zone.” A consultant a hospital hires to help oversee the EHR implementation may actually be an employee of the software vendor. Is this individual able to be a neutral advisor to the client? Or is the so-called consultant more interested in implementing a product, rather than advocating for a client?
