“Courageous, Thoughtful, Invaluable”

Chilmark Research operates on the core belief that healthcare information technology (HIT) has a crucial role in improving care, but only if healthcare leaders have a clear picture of the market and what needs the emerging technologies can actually meet. We use a pragmatic, evidence-based research methodology with a strong emphasis on primary research to provide technology adopters, consultants, investors, and vendors a clear view of the current HIT landscape. We also research specific sectors of the industry at the request of companies and organizations that need an objective third-party perspective.

Proven Research Methodologies

Chilmark research uses primary and secondary research to provide a better understanding of what areas of health IT are working, what areas require caution, and how given sectors of the market will develop over time. Out analyst team continuously tests assumptions regarding healthcare IT progress, vendors, the market, and end users. We share our latest findings with clients and the industry, as a whole, through our company blog.

  • Primary research – We solicit qualitative and quantitative data about the market from targeted stakeholders first through questionnaires and then through in-depth interviews. Profiled vendors also provide in-depth demos for analysts to evaluate and verify the extent of their proposed solution’s functionality.
  • Secondary research – We monitor industry reports, regulations, news and commentary for relevant trends and insight into the strengths and weaknesses of emerging technologies.

Throughout the research process, Chilmark maintains absolute objectivity. We aim to have the most comprehensive market research available and profiled vendors cannot pay to be included in reports. While the vendors we examine have the opportunity to review their company narratives for accuracy, our analysts reserve final judgement over any changes to descriptions and rankings. We believe this independence to be essential for our ability to deliver a clear, unbiased snapshot of the market and its offerings.
