82% of healthcare organizations replaced an IT vendor in the past year. Here's why...

Most healthcare IT vendors simply can't execute from a broader operations perspective. 4th Source has a 15-year track record of "rescuing" Specialty Pharmacies from such circumstances. We even go as far as to train other IT vendors in specialty pharmacy operations and next-generation digital practices. 


A key element when assessing technology impact is understanding the overall business.

I've seen different approaches people take to supporting customers. My approach, and what I have always taught my own team, is to understand the customer's business and operations as much as possible.

If you only understand that project, you may miss something critical in terms of dependent processes. Understanding the overall business processes and your customer's objectives will put you in a position to deliver a stronger project from a technology as well as a business perspective.

This approach is what has resulted in millions of dollars of project benefits for our specialty pharmacy customers, and why we tend to stay within an account for many years as their vendor of choice.
