Secure Communication 2018
Decision Insights Report

Authored by: Paul Hess and Paul Warburton October 30, 2018 | Read Time: 5  minutes

Secure communication is a rapidly evolving market, with high variability in terms of both customer needs and vendor offerings. Whether replacing an existing solution or making a net-new purchase, acute care organizations are largely moving toward broad communication platforms† that streamline communication organization-wide. In contrast, ambulatory organizations are focused primarily on HIPAA-compliant messaging. This report—which combines performance feedback from current customers with purchasing insights from 100 acute care, ambulatory, and post– acute care organizations—examines which vendors are most often considered, what factors most influence their decisions, and how current customers rate vendor performance.
