The goal of healthcare reform legislation is to improve the quality of care and clinical outcomes in a cost-effective manner. Federal mandates are spurring the deployment of healthcare IT to help enable a new healthcare enterprise, which emphasizes collaborative care across the continuum.

While EHR systems are the most widely adopted healthcare IT—driven by financial incentives from EHR stimulus programs—connected healthcare enterprises must adopt additional software and devices to maximize their EHR investment. These other healthcare IT solutions must be interoperable with and connected to the EHR/EMR.

HIMSS Media conducted a survey, on behalf of Philips Healthcare, to determine how healthcare organizations are prioritizing their technology investments to address healthcare reform. Of the 142 respondents, 85 percent represent either standalone hospitals or integrated delivery networks. With nearly 40 percent of respondents in C-level positions—with the predominant position being CIO—and another 30 percent comprising IT directors and managers, the survey provides a snapshot of the current state of healthcare IT in the hospital setting.
