If you have 4 different tools that should be 1 HIPAA compliant tool… you might have a problem.

If it is easier to create a hack to get work done without using the tool itself… you might have a problem.

If you start asking questions about “down-time” or outages… you might have a problem.

If you still call or send emails to verify statuses that should be visible in the app… you might have a problem.

If your vendor can’t prove they have done it before… you might have a problem.

If running reports is more important than driving action… you might have a problem.

If true asset visibility and control is not real-time… you might have a problem.

If you can’t track items at the piece level… you might have a problem.

If double manual-entry is part of your daily life… you might have a problem.

If you can’t do your job easily because the tool makes your job 10x more complex… you might have a problem.

If copy and paste is easier than using the tool… you might have a problem.

If your scheduling, product requesting, order to cash, sales analytics, planning, sourcing, inventory management, audit, and surgeon communication tools are all different… you might have a problem.

If your iPhone/Android isn’t supported… you might have a problem.

If your tool is not fully integrated with the ERP… you might have a problem.

If you need a handheld scanner… you might have a problem.

If nightly file pulls is considered integration… you might have a problem.

If it takes more than a couple days to be fully using the system… you might have a problem.

If audit requires you to add headcount… you might have a problem.

If the team thinks predictive planning can be done without getting better data first… you might have a problem.

If sales and operations cannot be separated while still functioning together in the same tool… you might have a problem.

If RFID is the answer to everything… you might have a problem.

If you want hospital integration and buy-in for your custom single-vendor tool… you might have a problem.

If you think you can force sales reps behavior… you might have a problem.
