Aimee Watson, now a member of St. Onge Company, was published in an article for the Biomedical Instrumentation and Technology journal. In the article, entitled "Proactive Vendor Management for Healthcare Technology," she and Samantha Jacques discuss best practices for managing vendor relationships, specifically in the Biomedical Engineering and Information Technology fields. They advise creating a specific contract and scope of work, outlining expectations and requirements. They also recommend a vendor scorecard for each scope of work, outlining timelines, deliverables, response time, customer service, and anything else related to your specific project.
