Balancing Act
Every IT department typically has to justify its spending, detailing the ROI and business benefits of each investment. But I'd think non-profits, especially those found to truly spend the vast majority of their dollars supporting their causes as opposed to supporting their administrative costs, feel and have a greater obligation to seek out the most cost-effective, longest lasting investments for their purposes. In interviewing Nick Ward, he mentioned multiple times how much this weighed on him: That every dollar spent on tech is a dollar that does not go toward supporting CMN's 170 hospitals but CMN needs the right technologies to more effectively and efficiently support its fundraising initiatives. 

Wonder how other IT professionals at non-profit organizations, both in and outside of healthcare, balance these needs?
