Administrators at hospitals are looking at measurements and realizing that there are different care plans for the same patient. Appointed managers in state government agencies are looking at the federally-mandated fines and wondering why they can't get the feds' family assistance statistics in time. Pharmaceutical company executives are realizing that their companies are giving samples to doctors within invalid or non-existent AMA numbers. All of these are high-profile and high-impact business problems. And, in an economy where every penny counts, they're also more expensive to sustain than they are to fix with MDM. The argument to these C-level executives is simple: Do you want to keep bleeding money and jeopardizing customer welfare? Or do you want to fix and reconcile your data? The answer should be a no-brainer.
