Analyze vendors who compete in the HIT software marketplace using the Independent Physician Office Ambulatory EMR Scenario

Write a 2-3 page executive summary outlining three vendors offering an ambulatory Electronic Health Record to independent physician practices that you recommend engaging for further acquisition activities such as stakeholder demos and request for proposals. The executive summary should be addressed to the members of your fellow executive leadership team.
Compare and contrast the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) of three vendors.

(Consider Functional, Technical, Operational, and Strategic for each element of the SWOT)
Comparisons should include quantitative/evidence-based information as well as qualitative.

Be sure to clearly outline the strategic, operational, technical (IT) requirements, and market reasons for your recommendation. If you are recommending one vendor, justify your strategy to handle the organizations’ anticipated loss in negotiating leverage.
