Digitalization is invading all aspects of healthcare, and data, analytics, and security are at the core of healthcare transformation. As the volume of data increases, care teams are increasingly burdened with administrative and other non-value add tasks. In fact, nurses and care team members spend up to 50% of their time on tasks that do not involve caregiving. This shift demands industry transformation including reduced costs and improved operational efficiencies.
Gartner recommends that health care delivery organizations invest in an anti-toil IT plan. As healthcare moves towards digitization, US healthcare provider CIOs are tasked with developing IT strategies that incorporate a best-in-class approach to data security and eliminates manual and repetitive tasks for clinical care delivery teams.
Leverage these predictions to turn “shiny objects” interest into accelerated innovation and be the leader that other healthcare organizations look to.
