The top three priorities that CIOs identified were:
- Improving overall IT product and technology processes (16%)
- Aligning key stakeholders on processes to drive adoption of technology (12%)
- Focusing less on individual technology products and more on integrated solutions (12%)
“Insights from this survey reinforce the complexity of health IT and the challenge of operationalizing new technology solutions,” said
When asked what percent of their IT staff have the skills to be successful, 48% of survey respondents said almost everyone, 30% said most do, 12% said some do, and 10% said very few.
However, those surveyed said middle managers in health system IT departments need to work on being better project managers (64%), learn to speak the same language as clinicians and other internal teams (63%), and step up their game when it comes to leveraging IT platforms and processes (62%). They also wish for middle managers to better understand how technology can make a difference in the way hospitals deliver care (45%), to set goals that help achieve strategic initiatives (40%), and to develop financial skills, such as budgeting, forecasting, and justifying (37%).
Even though there are competing priorities for these CIOs in 2020, the survey also revealed that they are ready for and most excited about technology innovation.
“Health system leaders are looking for innovative ways to solve problems, and we are pleased to be able to offer integrated solutions that fulfill their priorities for the coming year,” said
