I am so glad that my Information Week article BI in Healthcare is receiving interest and mostly positive feedback. I believe that this is indeed a very important topic to write about, especially considering how behind the times the industry is, and what a unique opportunity we have right now to get it right. We so strongly believe that this is such a critical IT issue and challenge, that Forrester is even bending its own rules slightly – typically all our research is “role” based, not industry based, as we most often find that challenges and requirements by role are almost always very similar across industries. Healthcare and public sectors seem to be a big exception, and therefore, I and some of my colleagues do plan to publish more Healthcare IT specific research. For example, I am currently in the middle of surveying top 30+ BI vendors specializing in Healthcare against 40+ criteria. Stay tuned to the results of this research. And my colleague, Craig LeClair (http://www.forrester.com/rb/search/results.jsp?N=0+11226), is in the midst of conducting research on EMR best practices.
I also welcome the opportunity to respond to the ANON1250257151313 comments that our research is “vendor sponsored”, that we recommend “BI-as-a-fix”, and that we are “far from the real world”, as follows:
I love and welcome this challenge, Mr or Ms ANON1250257151313, so please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s keep the dialog going! I also welcome all of the other IW readers to email me directly with any Healthcare BI research requests.
