As a health technology company, Smile CDR's goal is to reduce barriers between information and care. We harness the power of open standards while building health IT solutions. Our data and integration platform fuels healthcare’s digital transformation by giving organizations the ability to meaningfully share health data. Healthcare advancement cannot happen without interoperability.

Choosing an IT solution is a complex and costly decision-making process. It requires balancing budget constraints with the need for innovation and regulation compliance with ease of implementation. You need a trusted vendor. With many companies offering the promise of expert solutions, how do you evaluate vendors to determine whether they can deliver on their promise of interoperability?


Reviewing the list of external certifications and proven standards a company has achieved would be a good starting point. These certifications are awarded to companies who have proven discipline in the end-to-end process and product management. To achieve and maintain an external certification is not quick; it is a long process that requires investment of time and resources. It is similar to building trust and credibility, which take time to establish. Considering the effort involved in achieving any certification, one can look at a list of available certificates as a tangible proof of commitment to delivering the best service for the clients.
