ABSTRACT:

Healthcare leaders have struggled to realize meaningful economic return from IT investments, which have yielded questionable returns for many reasons, including administrative, cultural, design, implementation and planning. As a result, provider organizations have been slow to adopt new IT capabilities.

A well-planned IT strategy can yield better clinical outcomes while offering a positive return on investment (ROI) for hospitals and other healthcare provider organizations.

This white paper examines the leading practices employed by healthcare systems worldwide and proposes a patient-centered care approach for IT investment that combines a series of capabilities to improve quality care, reduce operating costs and optimize revenue.

Additionally, there is a econometric model that calculates the anticipated value such an approach could bring to a hospital, as well as thought-provoking questions to help asses where they are and what steps need to be taken to exploit technology and drive better outcomes.
