Most organizations fail at innovation because they fail at change. Truly effective healthcare software has the power to transform your business processes, workflow and workplace for the better, but only with comprehensive buy-in from all affected stakeholders.
The VNA is a crucial component to an enterprise strategy, and if organizations consider it from both an IT and a clinical perspective, it can be the foundation of for an enterprise imaging solution that equips a healthcare organization to go the next level in value-based care.What are the benefits of such a transformation? What does it take to achieve? What criteria indicate success? Let’s review each of these questions.
Editor’s Note: The following article was recently published on ITN website and is reprinted here with permission. Between 2010 and 2013, U.S. hospitals spent $47 billion annually on information technology (HIT), according to the American Hospital Association. In 2014, nearly all (97 percent) of the hospitals tracked by the U.S. government possessed a certified electronic health […]
Editor’s Note: The following article was recently published on ITN website and is reprinted here with permission. CHALLENGE Hospital consolidation is gaining momentum. At the end of 2016, Becker’s Hospital Review predicted that this movement toward fewer but larger health systems would continue. Among the drivers are an increased focus on population health, disputes between payers […]

CHALLENGE Many of the multiple and disparate information technologies that now handle patient data in consolidated health systems were initially implemented to serve distinctly different purposes. IHNs/IDNs “stuck” with these systems need a strategy that allows for an integrated […]
Healthcare depends on patient trust -- trust in the physician, in the system, in the privacy they provide. Security breaches of the IT systems that hold patient data can undermine that trust. Will patients who do not trust the integrity of health IT spill over to providers, leading some to go to other providers? Will those who remain hesitate or refuse to disclose details that physicians and nurses need to manage their healthcare?
Technological breakthroughs are transforming healthcare, but whether that transformation improves patient care or not, is another matter. Figuring out how to leverage new technologies in a way that benefits patients is an ongoing challenge. It’s also a common theme at the 2018 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference and exhibition March 5-9. […]
Healthcare’s digital transformation is progressing, but it’s far from complete. The lack of effective data sharing is becoming an urgent strategic issue for C-suite leaders, who need a complete data picture on patients in order to deliver value-based care. New, voluntary data standards are beginning to make it easier to exchange data, but sharing data […]
