Benevolent health changes acquisition strategy
Benevolent Health (BH) wants to continue growing and is determining whether to acquire larger and more mature hospitals than previously. Although successful with using a standardized approach for integrating smaller acquisitions, CIO Nancy Wilcox has concerns about applying the same approach to acquiring hospitals with more mature information systems and technology. She has asked James McDermott, a project manager, how Information Services could evaluate and integrate differently these larger hospitals, and to explore how value could be created from such acquisitions, without necessarily integrating them using Information Services standardized approach. At this time, included in the case is some background information James has gathered related to his project. He realizes he has a long way to go before he can write his report and meet with Nancy to present it.
