Hospital IT Transformation

Forward-thinking community hospital CEOs are giving information technology leaders a voice in strategic planning sessions. The reason? Increasingly, technology solutions are able to help advance organizational goals. Unfortunately, the converse is also true. IT solutions that are obsolete or heading in that direction – such as on-premise servers, desktop computing and legacy systems – create ‘tech debt’ and can hold a hospital back from achieving its goals.

This white paper provides a roadmap for strategy-driven IT transformation, from assessing a hospital’s needs to building a framework for IT solutions that support both clinical care and financial success.
