How Vendor Control and IT Philosophy Impacts Costs

“Best in class”, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”, and “control your own destiny”.  These were all common business adages that I referred to often as my professional career started and have been the cornerstone of many of my business decisions since.  However, over the past 10 years, it has become painfully obvious to me that for a variety of reasons our current leaders do not consider these adages relevant when making important  decisions.  This is certainly apparent with system requirements, vendor selection, and/or purchase of many major healthcare systems.
