Executive briefing: Survey researches health IT spending
Just about anyone working in hospitals and ambulatory clinics will tell you that their No. 1 goal is to improve the quality of patient care, and technology plays a huge role in that objective. The results of TechTarget's 2017 Health IT Purchasing Intentions Survey, conducted in partnership with the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), indicate that quality of care, patient engagement and security all will receive boosted investment in health IT spending this year. Those three areas tie together in creating a modern patient experience in which diagnosis and treatment take center stage, all while protected health data remains secure behind the scenes.
In this special survey briefing, our editors look deeper into the results, in particular exploring which patient engagement technologies are poised to get funding from healthcare CIOs. Readers can also take a visual tour of important health IT spending results in the areas of data security measures, cloud options and overall technology investments.
