What Technologies or Health IT Initiatives Would Healthcare Providers Deploy If They Could Do So at No Cost?
This IDC Survey Spotlight presents key findings from IDC's U.S. Healthcare Provider Technology and Connected Health Survey, with a focus on acute/inpatient (e.g., hospitals, regional medical centers, medical centers), ambulatory/outpatient (e.g., outpatient centers, clinics, and physician groups/practices), and post-acute/long-term (e.g., long-term care hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and home health agencies) care settings and technology buyers.
"Some technologies and health IT initiatives far outweigh others when it comes to the affinity U.S. healthcare providers have for and promise of the technology, but these often come at a high cost," says Mutaz Shegewi, research director, IDC Health Insights. "The topmost technologies and initiatives demonstrate that providers want but are challenged by the cost of transforming care, accelerating hybridized (location-agnostic) care delivery, and promoting better clinical collaboration."
