Technology strategy & partner selection
Technology partnerships are critical to the success of any digital transformation program. Health systems looking to accelerate their digital transformation need to develop strategic partnerships with technology providers. However, fundamental questions about vendor strategy remain hard to answer.
- How do we quickly identify and screen the right solution partners to implement the roadmap?
- How do we conduct a structured evaluation of vendors in a short time?
- How do I ensure I am adequately leveraging all my current technology investments?
- What internal capabilities are required to support and enable the transformation?
- What should be my governance model for a multi-vendor technology solutions environment?
The ICEATM Framework
helps evaluate the vendor landscape by classifying solution providers into four main categories based on their core attributes. In conjunction with our DamoIntelTM Digital Health Intelligence platform, the framework provides deep insights that can drive informed decisions in technology partner identification and selection.

No single vendor can meet every need of a health system’s digital transformation journey. Digital transformation leaders must make careful choices in selecting vendors for implementing digitalization opportunities in their roadmap. Doing so requires a clear understanding of the vendor categories and the attributes of each category of vendor.
The Damo ICEATM framework categorizes the technology partner landscape based on key attributes. The framework is based on extensive market research and our deep knowledge of the technology solution provider landscape.
