68% of CEOs report purchasing of hospital IT systems as major capital need over the next 5 years

Tim at Medical Connectivity reported yesterday about IT being an important part of most hospital CEO’s concerns and prioritites. An important remark he made was:

Hospital boards are focused first on financial viability (66%), information technology infrastructure ranked second (at 22%). Hospital CEOs are investing in programs to improve quality. Specific programs are chosen in large part for their ability to generate revenue enhancements and/or reduce costs.

Time to visit your local hospital CEO and help him part with his money :-).
