How To Pick IT Consultants for Various Technical Tasks

The editors at The Journal of Surgical Radiology recently asked me to write a column on what I thought would be an important IT topic. Given the number of healthcare providers I’ve consulted with and counsel on a regular basis one of the most common questions I get is “how do I know which consultants I need?” With all the new work surrounding meaningful use and certification, this is an even more timely question so I wrote a column for them on “How To Obtain Quality IT Help“.
