A new report from Orem, Utah-based KLAS says the typical cost hospitals pay for a consulting engagement for enterprise resource planning (ERP) software has dropped dramatically in the past three years.

The report, “Staying on Target with ERP Implementations: A Report on Healthcare Consulting Firms,” reflects the experiences of 59 healthcare providers that have recently implemented or upgraded ERP software with the help of IT consultants. The study points out that the average cost of an ERP consulting engagement has dropped 77 percent in three years – from roughly $2 million in 2006 to just $450,000 today.

According to KLAS, in addition to budget constraints facing hospitals, it also reflects that fact that most healthcare ERP engagements today are upgrades.

To learn more about the ERP implementation services market, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of participating firms, the report, “Staying on Target with ERP Implementations: A Report on Healthcare Consulting Firms” is available at www.KLASresearch.com.
