Do I need to engage a consultant?

Once an assessment of the in-house expertise is completed, a health center may decide that they need to engage with a consultant. The services of a consultant can be procured by going through a reputable consulting firm or through referrals. Regardless of the approach used, it is important that the consultant transfers the necessary knowledge to the resident health IT team. In addition to general provisions, the consultant contract should clearly define the scope of work, the deliverables and associated timelines.
