Additional (hidden) costs:

o HMS’ CPC+ reporting is used for existing clients, for whom an SQL server has already been identified as a necessary cost for use of its SQI software.

o Currently, CPC+ reporting is only available for HMS’ existing clients.

Contractual Limitations:

o Based on HMS’ business model, all of our clients retain full ownership to their own data.
o What does this mean?
Once calculation/s are made on your data with HMS software, the data remains under your/the CLIENT’s ownership. There is, therefore, no limitation on the use to which YOU/the client puts the data, i.e. the metrics calculated.

Technical limitations:

o HMS eliminates technical limitations for its clients, with its initial, up front charge for connection already handled thru an SQL server this IS required for initial set up with SQI on the SQI side or CSV file.
o HMS’ clients can add the CPC+ service at their discretion, for which there is a separate charge, as reflected in HMS’ pricing model which provides transparency for providers and payers

Once you have paid HMS to calculate your data, you/our clients are able to use calculations as you see fit.

HMS removes technical barriers for our clients.
